We have thrown our support behind two organisations that are helping to build bright, positive futures for young people, providing funds through our Clarity Cares programme.
Donations to The Wilderness Foundation and UK Youth were given as part of our commitment to divert 1% of our profits to good causes. By donating these funds through The Big Give Christmas Challenge in December, we have doubled the impact they will have for the charities, providing learning, therapy or mentoring for young people in the UK in 2021.
Donating to UK Youth, an umbrella body that provides opportunities to young people, we are giving the gift of outdoor learning this Christmas. Our £5,000 will provide disadvantaged young people from London with an unforgettable weekend of outdoor learning. By donating via the Big Give campaign, we have helped the charity to double our donation, which will mean 60 young people can benefit from this fantastic learning experience.
Vicky Chenery, Head of Partnerships and Philanthropy, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Clarity for their support. This year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge raised much needed funds for Avon Tyrrell, UK Youth’s outdoor learning centre in the New Forest. The £17,000 raised through the campaign will give disadvantaged young people an unforgettable weekend of outdoor learning; from canoeing and archery to high roles and wall climbing. With the guidance of our experienced outdoor learning instructors, young people will have the opportunity to build life-long skills, grow their confidence, connect with nature and enjoy much needed respite from challenging home lives. Supporting young people this year has never been more needed – Thank you.”
