Giving Something Back!
KBA is a strong believer in supporting local charities and trying to help those that need it. We actively fundraise through the Openwork Cares 4 Kids foundation every year. This money is then distributed out to other charities and causes as the trustees see fit.
The team from KBA have, alongside other advisers within Openwork done a Coast to Coast cycle challenge to raise £5,000 for the cause.
As well as this we also support more local charities and personal causes to help make a difference where we can.
KBA supports Maddi's Butterflies, a charity set up in memory of Madison Allan aged 7 who passed away on Boxing Day 2011 from Neuroblastoma. The charity helps creating Smiles Everyday by Granting Small Wishes and Providing Short Breaks in Our Luxury Caravan for Children Suffering From Neuroblastoma and Other Rare Cancers.
Giving something back. Thanks to the Openwork Cares 4 Kids Foundation and everyone involved for this wonderful donation. Such a great cause!
KBA have proudly sponsored Key 103's Mission Christmas since 2014.
A charity making sure all the children in Manchester wake up to a present on Christmas day. You would never believe the poverty that is outside our own front door and what better way to make a small difference, which anyone can do than buying an extra present at Christmas for someone less fortunate than ourselves. Surely that is what Christmas is all about.
