“For many years I have been an avid supporter of charities, both personally and supporting through business. These charities have always struck a chord with me on a personal level. We can't but fail to be touched by the many worthwhile causes that the myriad of wonderful charities out there do today and of the end results they work tirelessly to achieve. One particular charity, WellChild, did just that whilst I was recently perusing the Sunday papers. An article in the Sunday Mail 'You' magazine brought me close to tears, subsequently I decided to explore in more detail as to what WellChild's Raison
D’être actually is. Having read through their website I was compelled to contact them to discuss the possibilities of working with them and subsequently I am not only delighted and privileged but extremely excited to announce that WellChild have taken Cherry Orchard on board as one of their Corporate Partners."
