Prince Harry patronage WellChild UK got some good news this Christmas - the charity is to be supported in fund-raising efforts by UK Propp.io

WellChild UK, a charity who has Prince Harry as their Patron, has announced a new fundraising partnership with the UK lending comparison site Propp. In 2022, Propp’s staff are planning a series of activities to raise money for WellChild’s work.

In an article published on the  WellChild UK website, Propp revealed that they became involved with WellChild UK in September 2021, when the firm’s staff volunteered at a WellChild Helping Hands project, to help transform the garden of a young boy living in Portsmouth, when Propp staff helped to make the outside space more suitable for his needs.

As part of their planned fundraising for 2022, Propp is planning for members of staff to take part in a 24 hour Three Peaks Challenge event, scaling the three highest peaks in the UK: Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, within a 24 hour period to raise money for WellChild’s work. Propp report that staff will also be taking part in the WellChild UK virtual Step Up Challenge in which they will have to conquer up to four different physical challenges, set by some of the children WellChild support.

WellChild Chief Executive Colin Dyer said: “we are incredibly grateful to Propp and all their staff for supporting WellChild over the next year in a wide range of ways, both fundraising for our work and helping families directly through volunteering for our Helping Hands projects. Their support would be welcome at any time but it is particularly so now because COVID-19 saw WellChild lose 60% of our forecasted income and yet the demand for help from families caring for some of the most vulnerable children and young people in our society sky-rocketed.”

WellChild provides essential and practical support to ensure that the increasing number of seriously ill children and young people in the UK have the best chance to thrive – properly supported at home with their families.

Propp.io describe themselves as a specialist comparison on-line site that makes comparing bridging, commercial and development finance deals simple. They say that they use technology to drive competition between lenders with the ultimate goal of making the specialist finance industry fairer, more transparent and more competitive.
