Concertus’ Chosen Charities 2020

We have organised a variety of fundraising events over the last seven years. As well as creating special memories for us, these events have raised impressive funds which have had a significant impact on our chosen local charities. The total raised for our chosen charities in 2019 was an amazing £13,356.09. This year’s all staff vote saw EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) and East Anglian Air Ambulance being selected as our chosen charities for 2020. We are looking forward to supporting these wonderful charities throughout the year.
