Thank you to all our marvellous friends
When your company partners with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, you will be making a real difference to in excess of 18,600 seriously ill children and families that we support throughout the UK.
As our corporate partner, you will become part of our Marvellous family - bringing your support, staff enthusiasm or industry expertise to add real value to the lives of the Marvellous children and families that we support. You will make a vital contribution to our mission to provide every seriously ill child with a specialist nurse.
Funding from our Marvellous partners is already making a real difference to families every day, in many ways, but we still need your support. If your business or organisation would like to talk about partnering with us, we would love to chat. Please contact Sarah Sharkey, firstname.lastname@example.org
We would especially like to thank the following companies and charitable trusts for their incredibly generous support:
The Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) is an extraordinary success story. Founded in 1992, ATG is now the world's number one live-theatre company with close to 50 venues in Britain, the United States and Australia. ATG has already raised over £80,000 for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity following a fundraising campaign during the 2016/17 pantomime season. ATG have committed their ongoing support for a further 2 years and will once again be holding bucket collections after every pantomime performance.
We're excited to launch a national partnership with the world-famous pretzel making company Auntie Anne's. Their 34 stores throughout the UK will be supporting our charity through a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year.
For the second year running, we are the chosen charity partner for the Oxfordshire foodie lover's festival, which takes place over the August Bank Holiday Weekend (24 - 26 August 2018). The Big Feastival is a three-day family friendly event combining food from some of the country's top chefs with a top-drawer selection of live music acts.
Leading children's footwear brand, Chipmunks (part of Courtaulds Footwear Ltd.), has joined forces with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity to support our vital work with seriously ill children throughout the UK. The partnership will see Chipmunks introduce a brand-new capsule collection, which will initially include the launch of an exclusive pair of wellingtons and slippers featuring the charity's mascot, Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile.
Ten percent of all proceeds from these products will be donated to the charity. The lovable toothy character will also appear on all of Chipmunks' shoe boxes, further endorsing the charity partnership.
The Roald Dahl rose, also called (Ausowlish), has been developed by David Austin Roses to celebrate the world's number one storyteller, Roald Dahl. Marking his one hundredth birthday, this peach-coloured bloom also raises money to help seriously ill children in the UK, as £2.50 from every rose sold will be donated to us.
Edgewell Personal Care owns familiar household brands such as Wilkinson Sword, Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat and Wet Ones, as well as a substantial Private Label Shaving business.

This year, they have plans including bake sales and book sales, along with some keen runners taking part in the Surrey Half Marathon. The Explore Learning team supports families under the care of our Roald Dahl nurses and will even have some exciting visits from our nurses to tell children and families more about what they do.
