Berry's Jewellers Charity Scheme
“No one should have to fight alone, but with your help we can be there for everyone who needs us”.
Berry’s Jewellers will focus all of their fundraising efforts throughout the course of 2023 in aid of Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales.
“Our vision is to make a difference for anyone who may be terminally ill, have mental health issues or be socially deprived and to support young, poorly or disabled people to improve their lives and hopefully add a little sparkle”
After many years helping many charities on an ad hoc basis, we are now launching the Berry’s Charity Scheme to focus on one main Charity per year. Our staff regularly take part in fundraising efforts with both local and national charities and we want to improve and hopefully increase the amount we raise by being more united in our approach. We realise that many Charities are underfunded and under pressure to raise money and we want to try and help them.
We have decided that the best way to do this is to ask Registered charities to approach us directly during the year and apply for their Charity to be our chosen charity for the next year. We simply ask potential charities to fill in the form downloaded via the button below and return back to firstname.lastname@example.org and our newly formed Berry’s Charity Team will then assess each application and make the decision.
