Vodafone UK in Cheltenham have helped Gloucestershire-based Pied Piper Appeal with a £1,000 award which will help care for sick and disabled children in the county

Pied Piper, team members collected the Vodafone Community Connection Award, after staff the Cheltenham Vodafone store chose Pied Piper as the deserving cause.

Pied Piper, the charity, run by Nick Broady, was set up in 1992 and is now the leading children’s charity in Gloucestershire, working to transform the lives of sick and disabled children across the county. The charity also funds medical and practical equipment that enhances the care and treatment of children in hospital. Thanks to the £1,000 award, the charity will continue to provide this life changing support and equipment.

Wendy Fabian, Fundraising Manager for the Pied Piper Appeal, entered the charity for the award and said “Pied Piper is delighted to receive the £1,000 Community Connection Award from Vodafone. The money will be used to buy a Wee-Sight Trans-illuminator, which shows veins on small children and babies, making it easier to take blood and apply drips. The money will also go towards a play kitchen for the children’s oncology playroom and toys for the dermatology waiting area. The Vodafone Community Connection Award will make a huge difference to sick children across the county”.

Vodafone’s Community Connection Awards, launched in 2014, have already made a difference to more than 60 local communities across the UK. Selected by local Vodafone staff and aimed at supporting local causes, the awards have been used to help support everything from new equipment for soup kitchens and day centres for the elderly to helping people with disabilities to take part in sporting activities.

Matthew Perks, Vodafone store manager in Cheltenham said “The Pied Piper Appeal couldn’t be a more worthy and deserving cause, their work truly makes a difference to the people in our community. We’re thrilled that we are able to help them”.
