Imagine being able to revolutionise education with relational-based, project-based learning that arouses and sustains a child’s curiosity.
What about using horse carriages to increase the confidence of those unable to ride and to improve their physical and mental health?
Or being present in 37 countries, exposing poverty and helping with practical ways to end it by working to change current systems that marginalise the poor.
The charities that do these things are Chapel Street Community Fund, Manx Carriage Driving 4 Disabled and Christian Aid. At the annual AFD Group charity event in December they told stories of the impact on thousands of lives and families.
The event, held at the Group HQ at the Mountain View Innovation Centre on the Isle of Man, celebrated the fact that more than 60 charities nominated by AFD staff and Directors received a total of over £1,250,000 during 2017. David Dorricott, AFD Group Managing Director said “A core motivation for profit is to make life better for others. The lives of thousands of people have been enriched and empowered through carefully-channelled funds. We are delighted that such a wide range of charities has captured the imagination of our staff.”
