Cooper Solutions is delighted to be working with local charity, Evelyn’s Gift. The Barford-based business chose Evelyn’s Gift as its charity for 2019 after inviting suggestions from its team.
The charity was formed in 2014 in recognition of Evelyn Mary Smith who passed away suddenly at just seven years old. Its aim is to train as many people in CPR and lifesaving skills, and to provide little acts of kindness to people in need.
The team at Cooper Solutions has a number of fundraising plans in place, which include monthly bake offs, a summer barbecue and sports day. All money raised helps the charity with its little acts of kindness, which most recently have been assisting families in need with items such as uniform or shoes, through school referrals.
Barry Cooper, Managing Director of Cooper Solutions, said: ‘We feel privileged to be working with Evelyn’s Gift. Little acts of kindness can make a big difference to people’s lives. In addition, in partnership with Warwickshire Hearts, our team has been trained in CPR for which we are very grateful.
’We have a project in the pipeline which we are working on with Evelyn’s Gift, and are very excited about this as it will benefit many families.’
Helen Smith from Evelyn’s Gift said: ‘We are very lucky to be working with Cooper Solutions. The enthusiasm of their team is inspiring and we know that together, we can make a big difference to the lives of people in our community. On a personal level, I am very grateful for the support for my work in memory of my daughter which enables me to continue her legacy.’
