Employees from our Bournville site have chosen Sense, the national disability charity, to receive a grant of £5,000 from The Cadbury Foundation, as part of our ‘Your Charity, Your Choice’ scheme.

The charity’s pioneering, multi-purpose TouchBase Pears centre, which provides specialist services for people with complex disabilities in Birmingham, will benefit from the grant.

Mondelēz International has been supporting Sense throughout the summer. In May, we volunteered at a disabled-led arts festival at TouchBase Pears. Employees have also raised over £200 through fundraising activities at the Sense shops in Kingstanding and Shirley.

Carl Williams, Community Fundraising Manager at Sense, said:

"We are delighted to have been chosen as a charity to benefit from the generosity of Mondelēz International. TouchBase Pears is a place that brings people together in a welcoming environment. The grant will enable Sense to continue to provide opportunities to the people we support in Birmingham.”

Kelly Farrell, Community Affairs Manager at Mondelēz International, said:

“We are extremely proud to be able to support the charities that are important to our employees through our ‘Your Charity, Your Choice’ scheme. Sense supports people with complex disabilities to be understood, connected with and valued. It is the perfect choice for this donation, and we’re delighted The Cadbury Foundation will be making such a difference.”
