Island Roads busy raising money for Daisy Chains

1 min read

Island Roads employees will focus this year’s fundraising activities on helping the Daisy Chains charity which supports Island children with a disability, long-term health need or life-limiting condition.

Founded in 2012 by a group of parents, it also provides grants for much needed equipment and helps families with the cost of travelling to mainland hospital appointments.

After raising more than £1,900 for Home-Start Isle of Wight last year, Island Roads employees are planning a host of events and activities throughout 2020 to raise vital funds for Daisy Chains IW.

Mandy Fuller, fundraising manager from Daisy Chains IW, said: “We are thrilled that Island Roads has chosen us as their charity for 2020. All the money we raise goes towards helping Island families whose children have disabilities or life limiting conditions, whether that be in the form of a grant or by helping a wish come true by providing an experience for families to help them create special memories.”
