Perfect Placement smashes fundraising target for children’s charity

Time 2:56 pm, January 4, 2019

MOTOR trade recruitment company Perfect Placement has been working within a collective to support charity Nelson’s Journey in their vicennial year.

As the 20:20 collective, made up of 20 local businesses to mark the 20 years, they smashed the target to raise £20,000, generating more than £50,000 in total.

Nelson’s Journey supports Norfolk’s bereaved children and young people until their 18th birthday with a range of support, appropriate for their needs.

In addition to this, the staff of Perfect Placement have again donated their Secret Santa money to provide gifts for Nelson’s Journey.

This year the money has gone to replacing the charity’s audio equipment. Music activity is pivotal to the work Nelson’s Journey do with bereaved children and young people.

The charity uses music to help the children understand how music can influence their mood and this aids in the grieving process. They will play a small section of a range of tracks of varying music styles and encourage children and young people to write down how each track makes them feel, ranging between happy, sombre, heavy metal, thoughtful music.

Perfect Placement has also provided new soft furnishings, which are used at Hilltop Activity Centre for therapeutic weekends and activity days as the ones currently used are 20 years old, and children’s toys.
