Peel Ports Christmas fundraising raises over £6000

13 January 2022

Peel Ports is incredibly proud to announce that the festive fundraising activities that took place throughout December 2021 helped raise over £6000 for very worthy causes, including Save The Children and local homeless charity The White Chapel Centre.

On Friday 9th December, staff at Peel Ports pulled on their favourite festive knitwear, all to help create a brighter future for children around the world. 

Donations from employees across the group, plus contributions from the business, saw £800 raised for Save the Children to go towards their life changing work. 

Save the Children Charity has helped 45 million children and 38.3 million adults around the world, including here in the UK. The organisation's education programme also reached 12 million children in 2020. 

The annual Port of Liverpool Christmas raffle was another successful fundraising initiative that took place in December, raising money for its charity partner, The White Chapel Centre, with £1000 raised through ticket sales. The business again matched this, bringing the total to £2000. 

The Whitechapel Centre is the Liverpool region's leading homeless and housing charity. They work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation and are committed to helping people find and maintain a home and learn the life skills essential for independent living.

Last month, Peel Ports Group sent Christmas e-cards instead of printed cards and donated £3,500 usually spent on printed cards to charities chosen by employees. 

Peel Ports Group is delighted to support Christmas fundraising activities, and in turn, help charities raise the money they need to ensure they can continue to deliver fantastic work.
