RNID has been shortlisted as one of five charities for the Halfords Charity of the Year. The winning charity will be selected by a Halfords staff vote. If you work for Halfords (or know someone who does) please consider a vote for RNID.
Your vote could help us secure a fantastic two-year partnership with Halfords that will help us raise vital funds and build awareness. With 460 retail stores and 230 autocentres Halfords has a great presence across the UK. If successful, the funds would help pay for our community service which transforms the lives of elderly, vulnerable people in their homes – reducing loneliness and increasing independence. It would also enable us to continue funding pioneering research on hearing loss, impacting on the lives of all the 9 million people who are deaf and hard of hearing in the UK.
2011 is particularly notable as it is our centenary. Join us in celebrating by raising money to fund our crucial work. We have lots of exciting events planned for the year, including opportunities for employees to take part in our 100 themed fundraising challenges.
Voting is open from 10-17 January. Once again, please vote for us if you work for Halfords. We really need your vote to help highlight an important issue that affects 1 in 7 of the population.
