We’re delighted to announce that we have been chosen as City Taxi’s Charity Incubator of the year!
In 2020, City Taxis launched their City Charity Incubator scheme which was set up to support a local charity, who would join them in their offices for 12 months, taking away some of the financial and business pressures charities face. City Charity’s 2021 incubator’s Mums in Need, were provided with a space to grow, access to meeting rooms, Marketing and IT support, telephone lines and much more.
As many of you reading this will know, in May 2020 we were subject to an arson attack that destroyed a lot of our space. Joining City Taxi’s Charity Incubator will give us that extra bit of space we so desperately need and will help us whilst we work towards rebuilding the centre.
Amy Tingle, Business Director of City Taxis, said:
“We are so humbled to be able to house the fundraising team enabling them to work together again, during a time where fundraising has been particularly challenging due to Covid restrictions. The Archer Project are close to the hearts of many at City Taxis and we couldn’t be happier that they will be joining us at City HQ for the next year.”
City Taxis have previously supported our charity having been involved in our 2019 festival ‘Music for the Homeless’. Two members of the City team (Business Development Director, Paul Gosney and Marketing Manager, Sacha Skinner) also participated in our 2016 Sleep Out to raise funds for Archer Project.
Lynne Urpeth, Archer Project’s fundraising manager says:
“We are so excited to have been chosen to work with City Taxis as their 2022 Charity Incubator and are really looking forward to working alongside the team at City Taxis HQ. The past two years have been a challenge for us and we are incredibly grateful for City Taxis choosing us whilst we work towards rebuilding our centre following the arson attack in 2020. 2022 is going to be an exciting year for The Archer Project and we can’t thank City Taxis enough for supporting us.”
