WEST MIDLANDS CHARITIES RECEIVE £25,000 FROM THE CADBURY FOUNDATION
Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, Lindens Primary School in Walsall, Cannock-based charity Special Needs Adventure Playground (SNAP) and Grocery Aid have each been granted £5,000 from The Cadbury Foundation, whilst Sandwell Advocacy and Cerebral Palsy Midlands have received £2,500 from the Foundation, as part of Mondelēz International’s ‘Your Charity, Your Choice’ scheme.
Each year, the company’s UK employees are invited to nominate wellbeing-related charities or projects close to their hearts, with the final shortlisted charities voted for by the wider work force.
The Cadbury Foundation, which is celebrating its 85th birthday this year, was set up in 1935 in recognition of Richard and George Cadbury and their investment in the welfare of their employees and the local community. Across all Mondelēz International’s UK sites, £90,000 will be pledged as part of the ‘Your Charity Your Choice’ campaign.
