During October social care leaders met at Bournemouth International Centre for the prestigious National Children and Adult Services conference.
In addition to discussing the vital role technology can play in helping cut costs without reducing services, CM2000 gave delegates the opportunity to donate to charity without costing them a penny!
Instead of opting for typical exhibition stand give-aways, visitors to the CM2000 stand were given charity tokens which they could donate to one of three great charities; Scope (disability), the Honeypot Children’s Charity and Community Christmas. The money raised has now been distributed and all the charities are keen to pass on their thanks to the delegates that donated their tokens. Emily Gordon, Challenge Events & Community Co-ordinator at Scope said: “Thanks so much for the generous support from CM2000 delegates. The donation will help fund Scope services that provide vital support and advice to disabled people and their families.” Kim Kimberlee-Smith from the Honeypot Children’s Charity said: “Thank you for the donation. Every amount enables us to help another child carer have a chance at a childhood and maybe change their lives forever.” Caroline Billington, Founder of Community Christmas told us: “We operate on a very limited budget and your kind donation really does make a big difference to us. This money will pay for approximately 20 hours of temp time to help us contact more guests and event organisers, and hence reduce the number of people facing Christmas alone. Many thanks for everyone’s kindness.” CM2000 have been raising money for charities at events throughout the year and look forward to continuing this successful initiative in 2018.
