Axis’ Big Year of Giving
The Axis Foundation was set up to provide relief to local charities and causes in need of support and 2016 was one of their biggest years of giving. They supported over 30 different causes, from funding care at local hospices to creating a softplay room for a children’s playgroup.
In addition to over £91,500 of donations, funds are raised throughout the year from activities including; dressing up, baking, running, waxing, discos and the Axis Foundation annual charity ball that last year raised in excess of £100,000 with the help of supply chain partners.
Axis’ two long-term charity partners Demelza Hospice Care for Children and Sparks received a combined £55,000 to continue their work.
The donations helped a diverse range of people, including senior members of the community cared for by Contact the Elderly to the youngsters of Swale Gloves boxing academy.
