ColladoCollins supports Coram
This year, ColladoCollins have been raising money for Coram, a charity committed to improving the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people.
25 October 2018
ColladoCollins fundraising efforts so far have included a World Cup sweepstake during the summer months, fortnightly bake-off competitions between staff to mark the return of GBBO, and a recent Man vs Mountain challenge, where Robbie Campbell, one of our architects, climbed Mount Snowdon in a remarkable 5 hours and 44 minutes.
During October, members of staff have decided to abstain from their unhealthy habits, such as smoking, alcohol, sugar and chocolate for a whole 31 days!
Towards the end of the year, our fundraising efforts will be focused on the London Landmarks Half Marathon taking place in March 2019, of which we have 3 members of staff participating on behalf of Coram.

One of England’s oldest children’s charities, Coram was founded back in 1739 by Captain Thomas Coram, a philanthropist who wanted to provide care for abandoned children left on London’s streets. Coram’s vision today is that every child has the best possible chance to live a fulfilling life. Every day Coram offers direct, practical help and emotional support to vulnerable children, young people, and their families. They do it by finding adoptive families for children in need of loving, permanent homes, helping traumatised children express their pain through art and music and providing homeless outreach to young people.
