Every year at Join the Dots, we select a charity to support, whose values and culture complement our own. We change our focus each year so that we can help as many people in need as possible, and so that we can react to the changing world around us.
Over the years, we have supported numerous charities including Mind, Dr Kershaws, Macmillan and Cancer Research. In the last four years alone we’ve raised £26,000 for The Mustard Tree (a charity committed to providing life support for the homeless and marginalised), Mind (the mental health charity), and JDRF (a charity that funds research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes).
Our charity of the year for 2018 is Wood Street Mission, a charity based in Manchester that helps to alleviate the effects of poverty on local children and their families. We’ve already got some great fundraising events lined up and we’ll post regular updates on our progress through the year!
