Fundraising: Children’s Burns Foundation
Energize is delighted to to announce that our annual Charity Auction has raised over £3,700 for the Children’s Burns Foundation, thanks to the astonishing generosity of our employees and businesses across the UK
Following the inaugural success of our first event in 2014, the Energize Charity Auction has become an unmissable evening in our calendar. This is in no small part due to their commitment to fundraising for worthy causes, and also thanks to the quality of prizes donated – previously including sporting memorabilia signed by Cristiano Ronaldo, Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, and many more.
Energize employees selected the Children’s Burns Foundation as our fundraising partner to support them in their vital work following the Manchester Arena bombing in May 2017.
The Children’s Burns Foundation is a registered charity established to help young people affected by burn injuries and treated at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, and their families. The money raised will help fund children’s activity days, workshops and summer camps to inspire confidence and independence following injury; and will also support training programmes for staff and volunteers, by equipping them with the skills to provide bespoke care for injured children.
Chief among the items listed at auction were:
- – Everton football shirt signed by the first-team squad
– West Ham United football shirt signed by the first-team squad
– VIP Box tickets to West Ham United v Everton at the London Stadium
– Football boots signed by Crystal Palace goalkeeper Alex McCarthy
– Season Tickets at Salford FC
– £150 M&S Hamper
- – Taster menu at James Martin restaurant
- – 10 x VIP Day Pass for Force 10 paintballing
- – £100 Amazon Voucher

“Thank for your generosity with your fabulous donation to Children’s Burns Foundation. As a small charity run entirely by volunteers we appreciate being your chosen charity. Your donations will go towards enabling the Foundation to help burn-injured children. We do this by supporting rehabilitation initiatives to reduce the impact of scarring and research to prevent the physical and psychological consequences of burn-injury. On behalf of all of us at the Foundation, thank you again for your ongoing support.”
