Verastar, a leading provider of essential business services is hugely proud to have recently pledged support to the ‘When you wish upon a Star’ charity over the coming 12 months. Verastar recently marked the start of the year-long partnership by raising an impressive £4,000 for the charity during its initial ‘When you wish upon a Star week’. The week-long series of internal fundraising events took place in October with employees all participating in a number of events including World Food Day, a sponsored ‘wax on…wax off’ and ‘VeraStars in your Eyes.’ In response to such a great achievement from its people, the company has also agreed to triple the amount raised – meaning a final total of £12,000 is being donated.
‘When you wish upon a star’ grants wishes for children suffering life threatening or terminal illnesses. Year after year the charity provide children with amazing experiences including swimming with dolphins, trips to Lapland to meet Santa Claus and Disneyland to meet their favourite characters. Since 1990 the charity has fulfilled wishes for over 16,000 children across the UK.
“When you wish upon a star’ is a pretty amazing charity, and we are all extremely pleased to have been able to raise this amount in such a short space of time. We would like to thank all our staff who took part and look forward to working with ‘When you Wish upon a Star’ closely over the coming year to help even more children fulfill their dreams” said Jayne Sutton, Head of HR at Verastar.
Jen Hughes from When You Wish Upon a Star commented “We appreciate the generosity of our supporters and corporate partners and are overwhelmed with this donation which really will make a difference to the lives of many children and their families. We’d like to thank all the staff at Verastar for all their hard work and look forward to being able to share some of the children’s stories and ‘wishes’ with them over the coming year.”
