Coles Funeral Directors announce partnership with Roald Dahl charity for sick children

We are delighted to announce that after much deliberation we have chosen ‘Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity’ as our official charity partner.

The new partnership will initially be for 12 months and we hope to raise at least £3000 for around 100 hours of Roald Dahl specialist nursing for seriously ill children in and around Cardiff & Newport.Gareth Coles, Managing Director, said: “As a business, we regularly support charitable causes within our local area. We are committed to fundraising for organisations where we feel we can make a real difference, this coupled with the fact that Roald Dahl was from Cardiff, is a national treasure and the charity is for children, sealed the deal for us.

“Our fundraising is well underway with a range of fundraising activities in the pipeline that our staff will be getting readily involved in. Everyone is looking forward to working together to raise as much money as we can to help Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity provide even more incredible care for seriously ill children across the city and South Wales.”

Clare Eynon, Partnerships & Trusts Manager for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, added: “On behalf of everybody at ‘Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity I’d like to say a huge thank you to Coles Funeral Directors for partnering with us as their chosen charity. We are delighted to be working together to raise funds which will enable us to provide holistic support for thousands of children with complex care needs, specialist training for our Roald Dahl nurses, as well as providing assistance to families caring for seriously ill children and experiencing financial hardship through our Marvellous Family Grants programme. Our partnership aim is to make life better for seriously ill children-together.
