See Media fundraising to provide beds for children

Each year See Media supports a chosen charity with fundraising throughout the year. And this year, after reviewing some great suggestions by members of the team, the overwhelming consensus was to raise money for Zarach.

Founded by a Deputy Head Teacher, Zarach delivers beds, food and basics to children in poverty, helping families in crisis to move from surviving to thriving, and ensuring that children can eat, sleep and learn. Partnering with schools and supporting families, its goal is to make every house a home by giving ‘Every Head a Bed’.

With an initial target of £500, activities are already in the planning to make sure we meet, and hopefully, surpass it. First up is Stuart Macdonald, our Managing Director, with a challenging 15mile run around Balmoral Castle Estate. Other activities already in the planning for the rest of the year include yoga sessions, eBay selling and a trail run along the Offa’s Dykefootpath.

It’s incredibly sad that today, some families don’t have beds for their children, but sadly this is the case, with over 35 referrals being made to the charity every week. And so, despite our target of £500, we’re hoping to raise more funds which will go directly to providing more beds and necessities for children to learn and thrive.

We know it’s possible as last year, with the support of our clients, suppliers, peers and friendsand family, we smashed our initial target and raised £1,700 for Revitalise, the leading provider of respite breaks and holidays for disabled people and carers.

In the previous year, we also raised almost £1,500 for charity, including partnering with St Basil’s and the CIH’s Homeful campaign to end youth homelessness by doing 22 different activities in 22 days in 2022. We also donate funds every year to Save the Children through our annual Christmas Jumper Day (the equivalent of a Christmas party for a team spread across the UK)!

See Media’s team is made up of people who really care and want to make a difference. Every year, as well as using our volunteer days to help local charities, we make time to run, bike, swim, bake, sell, organise, plead and pester to raise as much as we can for our partner charity– if you’d like to help us on our way this year you can do so here:
