Amplicon Charitable Projects and Initiatives
Amplicon Fundraising Events
Amplicon tends to find ways to get involved with many local charities, whether it’s raising money through sales, in-office fundraiser events and many more.
For more than 10 years, we’ve been supporting numerous charities and the local community, which is a dedication that is very close to our hearts. Taking into account the events of the past few years, we believe it is more important than ever to support smaller charities that make a big difference to the people and animals they serve.
Bell Ringer Fundraising Scheme
Donations are collected entirely through the sales team’s hard work and determination. For every £10,000 order booked, they receive a ‘big order’ token, which is equivalent to £10. Sales employees have the choice to donate the token to one of the three chosen charity boxes.
Since 2016, we have raised over £20,000 for local charities across Sussex and are offering help to communities that need it the most.
Room Sponsorship for YMCA
Amplicon is the first ever corporate partner to sponsor a room for a vulnerable young person in one of YMCA DownsLink Group’s 24 hour supported accommodation projects in Brighton.
By sponsoring a room, Amplicon will put a vulnerable young person in the local area out of danger of assault, abuse and/or illness. In addition to a safe and stable home, every young person cared for by the charity receives full support and advice services as well as training opportunities to help them live independently.
Clothes Collection for local charities
The team at Amplicon have been donating any unwanted or unneeded items of clothing to Brighton based charity Martlets. Clothing donated to this vital charity is dedicated to improving the quality of life and caring for people who are living with terminal illness.
As a business, Amplicon feels it is our duty as part of the community to support this charity in every way possible.
Proud supporters of the Sussex community
During October, Team Amplicon walked their way to an impressive £1,650 for Alzheimer’s Society, a charity providing care and support for those suffering with dementia.
Amplicon hosted a Bake-Off challenge that brought together six companies from the estate to hold a Macmillan coffee morning. This raised £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, a worthy charity dedicated to helping and advising those living with cancer.
Albion in the Community
Amplicon hosted a fundraising day in support of the local charity Albion in the Community. Named Blue & White day, Amplicon invited all employees to wear the Brighton colours and organised an action packed day with plenty of football related fundraising activities.
Breast Cancer Campaign
Since 2008, Team Amplicon have supported the annual Breast Cancer appeal by wearing pink! In total we have managed to raise an outstanding £13,500 to support women fighting cancer.
Breast Cancer Now
For more than 10 years, Amplicon continues to support the Breast Cancer Now charity by raising money through an annual football matches and other fun. We hold a close relationship with this charity and every year we hold a successful event. We are proudly continuing to support Breast Cancer Now.
Team Amplicon took part in a two-hour dog walk to raise funds for Dog Trust and Alzheimer's society. The walk, which started at the Bramber castle, was led by the Amplicon CEO Gina Citroni who took the group through a beautiful walking route. In total £640 was raised for the two charities.
During Christmas 2019, Team Amplicon held a fundraising event, Elf Day in aid of Alzheimer’s Society. Elf Day was an amazing way to raise money for people affected by dementia by spreading some festive cheer. By the end of the day, Team Amplicon had raised an amazing £1000 to help provide support, fund research and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
Amplicon hosted a charity pamper day in aid of locally based charity CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people. With massages, manicures, makeovers and haircuts for the boys, the fundraising event was a great success. After the final count Team Amplicon raised a fantastic £500 for CLIC Sargent.
Throughout July 2021, Amplicon carried out a 100-mile walking challenge in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK. Team Amplicon stepped up and finished with an incredible 235.5 miles walked with our efforts raising a phenomenal £1,400. Team Amplicon dedicated the walking challenge to Ben Barden, father-in-law of sales manager Richard Munson, who sadly lost his fight with pancreatic cancer in July 2020.
