Utilize Plc supporting Kids Inspire on GivingLottery

Utilize Plc continues to enjoy a long tradition of working in partnership with local charities in Essex. The company’s Charity Ambassadors actively encourage staff and clients to participate in fundraising events and volunteer their time through their community day scheme. They support their chosen charities through sponsorship opportunities, innovative event management, promotion and awareness building via social media (with support from local celebrities).

Utilize started to partner with Kids Inspire in 2019, in appreciation of the vital support they give to children, young people adults, and their families in Essex. Kids Inspire provides mental health and trauma recovery through a range of therapeutic and community activities, promoting resilience, self-awareness, and relationship building to empower more positive life choices. Over the last three years, Utilize staff members who have volunteered to work on various Kids Inspire appeals have become passionate advocates for their work and goals.

Why the Giving lottery

"Fundraising for charities is rewarding and vital to their survival - but the pandemic and social distancing has made a difficult and time-consuming task at the best of times, much more challenging. So, when Kids Inspire suggested setting up a Utilize GivingLottery page for the charity, we jumped at the chance. The GivingLottery facilitates a quick and consistent opportunity to raise vital funds in a fun and convenient way.

Through the GivingLottery platform, we were able to quickly go live with a user-friendly page, requiring minimal admin, so that our staff could enjoy cracking on with raising money for Kids Inspire and potentially win some cash whilst doing so.

We are steadily building our ticket sales every month and we know that it makes a big difference to the charity to receive predictable monthly income. With regular performance and finance updates from the Giving lottery, we have complete visibility to track what we raise for Kids Inspire each year. Fast, convenient, and consistent fundraising – it’s a definite winner."
