Hydra Creatives Charity of the year 2022 – PACT
16th December 2021
Award-winning digital agency Hydra Creative has chosen PACT (The Parents Association Of Children With Tumours And Leukaemia) as their charity of the year 2022.
Hydra Creative will be planning fundraisers over the upcoming year to help raise money for PACT and the fantastic support they provide to the families of children with cancer.
Due to the pandemic, all charities have struggled with fundraising, but even more so the smaller charities may not be as well known. PACT stole the hearts of the Hydra Creative team because of the support they provide to families during what can be the most challenging time of their lives.
PACT was founded in 1977 with a donation of £113 and eight parents who created a support group for children with cancer. They initially started raising funds to give the children a Christmas party and take them on a group day out.
Since then, the charity has expanded. They now own and run a house right next to Sheffield Children's Hospital. Parents can stay there during their child’s treatment and receive ongoing support from the PACT team, who have been through similar circumstances themselves.
As well as the above, PACT provides practical support by purchasing equipment for the ward, schoolroom, and community nurses who take care of the children in their homes.
The charity also owns two caravans, one in Filey and the other in Berwick- on-Tweed, where families can stay in between treatments. The facilities are a welcomed break for families, allowing them to spend some quality time together.
Hydra Creative’s director, Ryan Daniels, has said:
“We are thrilled to have partnered with such an amazing charity – It means even more that the money we raise will be helping local families in their time of need. We look forward to fundraising in honour of PACT so that they can continue their wonderful work.”
