TorFX has been our partner since 2011. Over the past three years, they have raised over £35,000 for us.
Each year, TorFX enters members of staff to run the London marathon and participate in other challenge events in support of us, including an annual golf day which gets bigger and better every year.
What impact does £35,000 have for the young people we support?
This would pay for a part time debt advisor in a children’s centre to support families trapped or on the brink of falling in to problem debt, or a drop in centre which would provide a safe, clean and warm space for young runaways.
This year TorFX raised over £18,000 for us through the marathon and golf day in Tewkesbury, Gloucestshire.
Successful events for networking and fundraising
Colin Lawrence, Head of Business Development at TorFX said: ‘Despite the rather damp conditions and showers, everyone played with a smile on their face and had a great day. Not only was it a fantastic opportunity to catch up with many of our clients, associates and partners, whilst providing a relaxed and fun setting to network; but it was great to do all this whilst supporting The Children's Society.
We are very grateful to work in partnership with so many generous and supportive companies, and to see everyone come together to support such a great cause was extremely inspiring. To hear about the work The Children's Society undertake directly from their representatives really struck a chord. To be just a small part of the fantastic work they do is humbling. We are looking forward to next year already.’
