We were honoured to be invited to the prestigious launch event of the Caudwell International Children’s Centre.
Caudwell Children was founded in 2000 to improve the lives of disabled children.
Started as the philanthropic vehicle for the successful Caudwell Communications Group (Phones 4 U, Dextra, 20:20 etc), for the first seven years of its existence Caudwell Children was run by a team of dedicated Group employees who worked in their spare time to deliver services for children across the North Midlands.
Trudi Beswick, a Director in the business, personally visited each family in the evenings and weekends to assess the most efficient way that the charity could help, and by garnering the support of the 8,000 Group employees as well as suppliers and customers, raised the funds needed to deliver services to a growing number of beneficiaries.
As the need for this unique kind of support grew, the charity organically expanded to the surrounding regions.
