Disability charity receives £5,000 from The Cadbury Foundation


Employees from Mondelez International have chosen national disability charity, Sense, to benefit from the grant

Employees from Mondelez International have chosen Sense, the national disability charity, to receive a grant of £5,000 from The Cadbury Foundation, as part of its ‘Your Charity, Your Choice’ scheme.

The charity’s pioneering, multi-purpose TouchBase Pears centre, which provides specialist services for people with complex disabilities in Birmingham, will benefit from the grant.

Staff from Mondelez International have been supporting Sense throughout the summer. In May, they volunteered at a disabled-led arts festival at TouchBase Pears. Employees have also raised over £200 through fundraising activities at the Sense shops in Kingstanding and Shirley.

Carl Williams, Community Fundraising Manager at Sense, said:

"We are delighted to have been chosen as a charity to benefit from the generosity of Mondelez International. TouchBase Pears is a place that brings people together in a welcoming environment. The grant will enable Sense to continue to provide opportunities to the people we support in Birmingham.”

Kelly Farrell, Community Affairs Manager at Mondelez International, said:

“We are extremely proud to be able to support the charities that are important to our employees through our ‘Your Charity, Your Choice’ scheme. Sense supports people with complex disabilities to be understood, connected with and valued. It is the perfect choice for this donation, and we’re delighted The Cadbury Foundation will be making such a difference.”
