Be our Charity of the Year 2018

Do you know or work for a Surrey based charity that would like to be our Charity of the Year 2018?

We'd like to hear from charities that would benefit from a partnership with us and that we can support this year through our Active Gifts scheme. We partner up with a local charity each year and make a donation of activity tickets to their cause. The partnership is supported through the generosity of Spectrum's customers who donate unwanted points from their Active loyalty card which are then converted into activity tickets.

This year over 95,000 points have been collected for its chosen charity, Cherry Trees! This equates to a huge number of activity tickets enabling volunteers and local supporters at fundraising events to benefit from the donation. 2018 will be the twelfth year of running the Charity of the Year partnership.  Spectrum has previously worked with Christophers Smile, Woking & Sam Beare Hospice, Challengers, Shooting Star, Guildford Action, The Fountain Centre, Cherry Trees, Home-Start, Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice who all do exceptional work supporting the local community.

Guildford Spectrum Area Manager, Steve May says, “This scheme is a fantastic way for us to help make a difference to some of the many worthy charities within our community. Everybody benefits from some time to relax with family or friends, and we would like our donation of tickets to go to those who are most in need.”

The process to become Spectrum's charity partner is pretty simple. The only qualifying criteria is that the charity can make good use of the activity tickets that are provided and they are used by people who really need them and would benefit from a nice family day out.
