Fidelity supports Children&#39s Trust

Fidelity Investments is lending a helping hand to The Children&#39s Trust, a


charity group dedicated to helping physically handicapped kids and those


who need rehabilitation after car accidents.


The company is supporting three major fund-raising events for the Hand of


Hope Appeal.


The eventual goal is to raise money towards building a therapy and


rehabilitation centre to replace the present facilities. The new centre


will allow children to complete therapy in a purpose-built environment.


The first event, the Wheels of Steel Cycle Ride, takes place on May 21


through Surrey. The second, the annual Fun Day, is on July 22, and the


third, the Dracula Spectacular, is an evening of ghoulish family fun.


The Children&#39s Trust head of events Orianna Vottre says: “The support of


Fidelity is invaluable. This partnership means our events can be bigger and


better and will raise more money for children with profound disabilities.”
