Announcing our new Charity Partner for 2021/22

As a business that supports a different charity partner each year, we know there are so many good causes out there to support and it is always difficult to select just one. That’s why, this year, we’ve decided to support 12!

We’ve chosen Raise Your Hands (RYH) as our Charity Partner of the Year 2021/22 as supporting them will also have a massively positive impact on a number of smaller charities.

Who are Raise Your Hands?

RYH are a charity that support 12 smaller charities surrounding children and young people. Each of their charities meet the following criteria:

  • Able to demonstrate impact
  • Use interesting and innovative approaches
  • Led by capable, committed, driven people
  • Operate with a strategic mindset
  • Have sound policies and procedures

We believe that all of the charities supported by RYH align with our core value of Making a Genuine Difference.

Speaking to RYH about our newly formed partnership...

All of us here at Raise Your Hands are delighted and extremely excited that iHASCO have selected RYH as their charity partner for 2021. Disadvantaged young people have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and our small charities have seen demand for their services soar in recent months. This means the timing couldn’t be better. You will be part of the recovery, making sure that young people aren’t left behind.

Thank you so much for choosing to support RYH. We’re really looking forward to working with you and helping you get to know our fantastic charities better!

How will iHASCO help?

Like everyone else, we’re not sure how the pandemic will affect us over the next year.

What we do know is that the causes we are supporting have struggled massively through the pandemic and they need our help so they can continue their good work.

So as usual, we will host a number of staff fundraisers (either physical or virtual) to try and hit our £5,000 charity target! As well as this, we’re hoping to partake in a few volunteering days so that we can assist these good causes with a hands-on approach if possible!

I think we speak for everyone in the iHASCO team when we say that we’re very excited to get the charity fundraising efforts underway!
