Our Big Year of Giving

Last year the Axis Foundation donated over £193,000 to help people in the community in need of care, support or just a helping hand.

Like Vauxhall City Farm who received £5,000 to provide hundreds of places for disabled children to attend their therapeutic horse riding sessions.

We’re proud of the positive impact this funding has.

The Axis Foundation was set up to provide relief to local charities and causes in need of support and 2016 was one of our biggest years of giving. We supported over 30 different causes, from funding care at children’s hospices to creating a softplay room for a children’s playgroup.

Demelza and Sparks received a combined £55,000 to help them continue their work. The children’s hospice cares for terminally ill children and provides support to their families, whilst the medical research charity finds cures that we hope will reduce the number of children born with life limiting illnesses.

The donations helped a diverse range of people, including senior members of the community cared for by Contact the Elderly to the youngsters of Swale Gloves boxing academy.

Trustee John Hayes commented; “I hope everyone involved in the Foundation is as proud as I am to provide this amount of support to people and projects that make a big difference in our community. Sitting on the board that vets the applications, I am aware just how worthy these causes are and the great work they undertake.

From care in heart-breaking circumstances to enabling mobility and from guidance of those who have lost they way to creating experiences for the underprivileged, regardless of the type of help – it feels good to help.”
