AFD Software Charity Event 2015
Towards the end of last year, AFD software held its annual charity event which celebrated staff-nominated donations to well over seventy charities, with donations totalling over £750,000.
These donations go to support a wide range of local, UK and international charities, including those involved in medical care and research, disaster relief, youth work and work amongst those with disabilities.
Some of the 70+ charities nominated by staff members at AFD Software included:
Hope for Justice – Millions of men, women and children are trapped in slavery in the world today. Through their programmes Hope for Justice secure freedom, uphold justice and restore lives.
Ben Cooley, CEO at Hope for Justice, delivered a powerful presentation highlighting the incredible work the charity is doing at home in Britain and around the world, and the lives they are changing. AFD's donation will help them continue to change more lives.
Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 240,000 free life transforming surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
Funding from AFD will help put the smile back on these children's faces. Paul Laudiangco, Graphic Designer at AFD, and designer of Postcode News, nominated the charity and said: "I'm a big supporter of Operation Smile because it makes such a positive impact on the children who undergo surgery."
