FedEx and Action for Children have worked together since 2010. In that time, FedEx has supported the Delivering Hope to Children fund which has helped more than 15,000 children, young people and their families to take part in transformational days out and trips together, including visits to the cinema, petting zoos and days out at the beach.

These activities are essential as so many of the children and young people would not otherwise have the opportunity to escape the daily pressures of caring for someone, spend quality time with their family or socialise with their peers. The trips give the thousands of children and young people positive new experiences and the opportunity to develop their independence.

They also provide essential respite, the chance to befriend other young people with similar experiences and, most importantly, the opportunity to be a child.

"I am proud and inspired by our team who, in addition to the support we offer as a company, give up their own time to support such worthwhile causes such as Action for Children. We encourage our teams to actively support the local communities in which they live and work and are keen to see ever-increasing support in this area, helping both individuals and charities."

Trevor Hoyle, Vice President Northern Europe Operations, FedEx

FedEx also support Action for Children through a number of other activities:

  • fundraising to provide additional funds for the children and young people we support
  • volunteering to provide essential support to our local services across the country
  • logistical support for our events, including our annual million-pound fundraiser Byte Night and transporting Chris Froome’s bike to be auctioned for Action for Children

Help us do more.

Your support will help us make life better for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people.
