15/01/19 – SMC hold a Christmas raffle to raise money for a registered charity

Each year, SMC hold a Christmas raffle to raise money for a registered charity. Our suppliers generously donate prizes to us for this raffle, which means that every penny we raise can go directly to worthwhile causes.

This year we chose Support Dogs, a charity that provides specially trained dogs to people with disabilities, epilepsy, and children with autism. They are solely funded by public voluntary support. It costs £8,000 for the first year of training for their dogs and £2,000 per year to support them. The need for these dogs is increasing year on year, with 4,000 applications in 2017 alone, and they sadly find themselves underfunded every year.

We are so proud to say that the staff at our headquarters in Chandlers Ford raised a record £520, which the company have match funded, so we were able to make a donation of £1,120 to Support Dogs at the beginning of January. Thank you everyone!!

We would like to thank all of our suppliers, without whom, none of this would be possible:
