The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late night bars and clubs, has raised more than £27,500 for its charity partner the Echo Trust. This is the largest amount that the business has raised during its Christmas period since 2010.
The money was raised for the charity through Deltic’s ‘Give a Kid a Quid’ campaign. Each of the Group’s 59 clubs and bars across England collected donations from clubbers who visited during the Christmas period. Liquid Wrexham topped the leaderboard with £2,937 of donations, closely followed by Colchester, which raised £2241 followed Oxford, Birmingham, and Yeovil.
The Echo Trust provides grants to children and young adult charities across the UK. Its grants enable the purchase vital medical or similar equipment which they so desperately need and can’t be funded elsewhere.
Peter Marks, Chief Executive of The Deltic Group, “Here at Deltic we’ve been working with the Echo Trust – our partnership charity – for nearly 15 years now, so it’s fantastic to see that we raised more money over Christmas 2016 than any year since 2010. The amount raised is entirely due to the generosity of our guests, and so we’d like to say a huge thank you to them for digging deep for this fantastic cause.”
Kelly Young, Trustee at the Echo Trust added: “The Echo Trust wouldn’t be able to do the vital work that it does without Deltic’s help, and so it is with huge thanks that we accept this donation. The money raised will go towards grants to purchase essential medical equipment for children and young adults across the UK.”
