Octopus Giving has been working closely with four charity partners, Choir with No Name, FoodCycle, MyBnk and Downright Excellent, since 2017. Over the years, we’ve supported these charities with volunteering, funding and expertise.
We’ve had such a great time working with these four charities, with hundreds of Octopus people volunteering at events, cooking, singing, bucket-shaking, fundraising and helping with IT, marketing and finance. And while we’ll still be supporting them as legacy partners, we’re sad to say we must wish our four charities a fond farewell as partners.
Before we do, it’s time to look back over the past three years with Downright Excellent. Watch the full video to hear all about our partnership, including how the charity have
Downright Excellent works with children with Down syndrome to help them maximise their potential. The charities work with families to run speech and language therapy, life skills sessions and specific learning opportunities for children. They also help kids with their social skills through play sessions and provide support for parents and carers.
We’re so pleased to have worked with Downright Excellent to help the children they support to overcome the unique challenges they face, so they can live more independent lives.
