Devant Charity Spotlight
We are delighted to work with two deserving charities this year- Launchpad in Reading and Tiggiewinkles in Haddenham.
Launchpad is a leading charity that helps the homeless and is based in Reading, Berkshire, not far from Devant. We have supported the deserving work of this local charity for some years now. They seek to prevent homelessness, providing vital information and support for individuals, couples and families who don’t have a stable place to live or are at risk of losing their home.
We were delighted to sponsor the photography for their recent ‘Carols by Candlelight’ service held in the Town Hall in Reading on the 5th of December. The concert was wonderful and is just one of the many fundraising events that Launchpad stage throughout the year.
The next major event is their charity pancake race on the 13th of February 2024. If you’re thinking of getting a corporate team together to compete, now would be an excellent time to get in touch with Launchpad. Devant had been delighted to support this fun day for a couple of years now.
Our other favourite charity this year is Tiggywinkles, a specialist animal hospital in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire.
Thanks to donations, it is a free service. Using the best veterinary care available, they are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating all species of British wildlife. Since opening their doors over 300,000 patients have received treatment at the hospital. On a busy day they can have over 1,600 patients on site!
All British wild animal casualties brought to the hospital are treated and are released through a controlled programme, back to the wild when they are fully fit.
Both of these charities rely on donations so feel free to follow our lead and make a donation this Christmas if you can.
