Allcooper is delighted to have secured a new partnership with The Pied Piper Appeal, who have become our chosen Charity of the Year for 2018-19.
The Pied Piper Appeal is Gloucestershire's leading children's charity, whose mission is to make a difference to the lives of sick and disabled children in the county. The funds raised by the Pied Piper Appeal helps fund vital medical equipment and treatment for children in hospitals and special schools. To date, the Pied Piper Appeal has raised in excess of £4 million to help children and their families in Gloucestershire.

As well as continually raising funds to support local children's care, the charity runs several high-profile events during the year, including the incredibly popular Gloucestershire Motor Show (re-branded for 2018 as the Pied Piper Summer Show). These events are made possible by the hard work and commitment of over 170 dedicated volunteers, and support from many local businesses, like Allcooper.
Throughout the coming 12 months, Allcooper will be raising money and awareness for the charity, through supporting Pied Piper events, internal company fundraising and by sharing information about the Appeal.

"We are very pleased to have selected the Pied Piper Appeal as our Charity of the Year. As a Gloucester-based business, we are well-aware of the amazing work that the Pied Piper and its volunteers do to help poorly children in our county. It's a very well-run charity and we're looking forward to helping give something back through supporting their events, as well as getting our team involved with our own fundraising efforts."
Richard West, Fundraising Manager for Pied Piper said:
"We are delighted that Allcooper have chosen us as their charity. Being one of the largest and most well-known fire and security companies in the county, we very much look forward to our partnership to help the sick and disabled children we support."
