Economy Energy has raised £1,000 for war child, a charity that works to protect, educate and campaign for the rights of children affected by war.
The independent domestic energy supplier recently held a fundraiser picnic for its staff in Coventry’s Coombe Abbey Park to show support and spread awareness of the charity’s work.
The event was a huge success with lots of activities, competitions and food stalls to raise money and keep those attending entertained.
War Child works in six different countries across the world in which conflict has broken out, resulting in devastating circumstances and living conditions for children.
The charity works to support young people affected by war through offering protection, education, counselling and help with reintegration for children whose lives have been completely uprooted as a result of the conflict in their home countries.
Lubna Khilji, managing director at Economy Energy said: “We were delighted to raise so much money for an incredibly worthy cause. There are children all over the world whose lives are being destroyed by war and the physical, emotional, and psychological trauma that they incur as a result is devastating.
“War Child is out there making a real difference to as many children as they can and Economy Energy is proud to support them in this mission.”
The money was gratefully received by War Child and will help the charity towards achieving its goal of reaching 260,000 children in need of their support by 2019.
Economy Energy is committed to making a difference to communities in which it operates, and is always looking for opportunities to bring energy to local and global charities.
