Earlier this month, Eddie Stobart held its inaugural Summer Ball in aid of our 2016 chosen charity, When You Wish Upon a Star, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children aged 2-16 years living with a life threatening illness. 

The night was an overwhelming success, and the company would like to thank all of the staff and supplier partners who contributed and worked incredibly hard to ensure a job well done. The dedication, professionalism and positive attitude shown by all was exceptional, and allowed us to give something back to the community and this worthy cause.

It was our express intention to raise enough money to send 60 very brave children and their families on a Winter Wonderland experience at Centre Parcs, Sherwood Forest. And we are extremely proud to have surpassed our target, raising £155,000!

Fundraising events for When You Wish Upon a Star have taken place around the business already, and shall continue throughout the year.
