London, 17th January 2018 – The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late night bars and clubs with 57 venues across the UK, has raised more than £35,000 for its charity partner the Echo Trust.
For the seventh consecutive year, each of The Deltic Group’s venues asked customers to “give a kid a quid” throughout the festive period, and donate any spare change. The group raised over £35,000, almost £10,000 more than last year’s already impressive £27,500, and the largest amount that The Deltic Group has ever raised for the charity through the campaign.
ATIK in Colchester was the biggest contributor, raising an incredible £2,855, followed by £2,372 from Unit 7 in Basildon and £1868 from PRYZM in Birmingham.
The Echo Trust was set up by The Deltic Group in 2002 with the aim of helping as many sick children and young adults in the UK as possible by providing grants that will enable the purchase of vital medical equipment or similar.
Peter Marks, Chief Executive of The Deltic Group said: “We’re delighted to continue to support the valuable work of the Echo Trust. It is an amazing charity which has raised over £2.5 million since its founding, helping thousands of children in need of essential and life-saving medical equipment. We wouldn’t be able to make such a valuable donation without the generosity of our customers, and for that we are incredibly thankful.”
Kelly Young, Trustee at the Echo Trust, added, “Without Deltic’s support we wouldn’t be able to carry out the vital work that we do. We are extremely grateful, and it is with huge thanks that we accept this donation.”
