Seashell and Insight, a leading solutions and technology organisation based in Manchester have come together to create a two year partnership in which Insight is committed to supporting fundraising and on campus volunteering.
Darren Hedley, Insight.
“At Insight we encourage our teammates to give back to and be part of the communities we operate in. We support this through providing specially designated Heart Days – time for teammates to volunteer for different causes, and through regional partnerships with charities like the Seashell Trust.
I’m so proud that we’re partnering with Seashell , supporting their important work of providing resources and care to children and young adults with learning disabilities. We have already hosted the Trust at our Manchester office to raise engagement amongst our teammates and to drive wider awareness of their important work. Our teammates have already shown great enthusiasm for this charity through their fundraising efforts and support and I’m excited to see what we can continue to achieve over the next two years.”
This will be a fantastic collaboration in which Seashell will gain valued supporters and provide exciting volunteering opportunities.
Lorna Thompson, Events Fundraiser at Seashell.
“It was great to have the opportunity to be welcomed to the Insight offices in Spinningfields. The team are really excited to get started and so engaged with our charity already, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this partnership”
There are so many ways to support our charity and see the fantastic care and education we provide to children and young adults with the most complex disabilities.
Rachael Lomax, Insight.
“I was delighted when Seashell was voted through as our chosen charity for Manchester – having seen first-hand the work that they do, it’s inspiring to know the difference Insight can make through our partnership over the next two years. Seashell’s values align closely with Insight’s and I know many of our teammates are excited to support the charity, whether that be through fundraising, using our Heart Days to volunteer or taking part in the many events Seashell have planned.
We’ve already had a number of teammates visit Seashell, and they have been so moved by the work done and inspired by the children and young adults that Seashell support, that we are really looking forward to seeing how much we can raise to help Seashell continue their vital work. It really is an awe-inspiring place!”
Insight UK Leadership Team are already scheduled to volunteer at our inclusive holiday club, CADS on 23rd August and are working with Seashell’s Fundraising Department to plan their own Golf Day to raise funds!
