Little Devils Kitchen (LDK) is Smile’s new educational programme for 9-11 year olds. The 1 day fun and interactive programme is an innovative approach to engaging children in healthy eating and physical activity. A 10 school pilot is being delivered throughout 2014 thanks to the support of The Hull Clinical Commissioning Group.
In partnership with The Sewell Group, Help for Health and other local Hull & East Yorkshire businesses, Smile provided a Forget-Me-Not (end of life) Room and Family Room at Sunshine House. Thanks to the fantastic support and generosity of the business community, Smile was able to deliver this £110,000 project for £18,000.
Following the devastating news that Martin & Nicky Lauer’s beautiful baby girl was born sleeping, Martin & Nicky were determined to raise funds to purchase a second cold cot for Hull Royal infirmary (HRI). Smile managed the appeal fund and in 2013 a second cold cot, together with additional seating were donated to the hospital.
Smile helped celebrate the 40th anniversary of the MWS Group by raising funds for both Smile and Case Training. Over £14,000 was raised for CASE with the funds contributing towards their excellent work delivering training and employability support to adults with learning disabilities.
Over £8,000 profit from the awards was distributed to community groups across our region. Developed initially in partnership with Hull Trains and KCFM, today these awards are delivered by Mail News & Media and continue to celebrate what is best about our regions sporting achievements.
In Partnership with Gosschalks Solicitors, Scott’s Property and a team of strong volunteers, Smile transported and stored three articulated lorry loads of Reckitts donated office furniture, with a re-sale value of over £30,000. 19 charities went on to benefit from the range of furniture donated.
Smile heard about the fantastic Yorkshire Scan Appeal and provided information regarding a particular funding stream that may be available to the charity, resulting in a £70,000 contribution to the appeal. This has helped to provide the equipment for the non surgical treatment of breast cancer.
We developed a new initiative for the Hornsea based charity to generate additional funds to help cover their annual running costs. The 999 appeal sees businesses become lifesavers for the day, walking in a crewmember’s shoes and taking part in a fun and interactive teambuilding day for up to 6 colleagues.
