A group of Cardiff and Vale-based businesses have come together to raise money and awareness for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA). Beginning with The Business Centre (Cardiff) Ltd who decided to host a Fundraising Extravaganza event between 7-9 May to raise awareness for the cleft lip charity. They reached out to local businesses and were blown away by the support and generosity of local restaurants and hotels who’ve responded with a wealth of donations and prizes!
The Business Centre (Cardiff) Ltd are incredibly active in the local community, from fundraising to install a Welsh Hearts defibrillator onsite to supporting local sports hub, Barry Athletics Bowls Club. Their former Centre Manager, James Mason, now at Masons Self Storage, and his partner, Lucy, faced complications during Lucy’s pregnancy after it was revealed at their 20-week scan that Oliver had potential Cleft Palate issues. However, Oliver was born in October 2018 and luckily only had a notch in his lip which was easily corrected with a surgery when he was three months old. Eight weeks on from the surgery, he is absolutely thriving!
However, considering 1 in 700 babies are affected by Cleft Lip and Palate issues, James and Lucy don’t feel like there is enough awareness around the challenges and potential complications. Therefore, they are taking part in CLAPA’s fundraising week to raise money and awareness for this fantastic cause! They already have raised almost £500 through Facebook and now they’ve reached out to local businesses to see if they can help!
Thanks to the pro-activeness of Emma Lusty, at Revolucion de Cuba, our local hospitality brands, ranging across restaurants and hotels in Cardiff, have shown amazing solidarity, providing a variety of absolutely fantastic prizes!
Emma told us “The Cardiff hospitality sector is very competitive. Despite this healthy competition we are close and always help each other where and when we can. Cardiff is a great location with many varied offerings in all parts of the city. When it comes to charities we endeavour to do what we can within a difficult trading environment but ultimately it’s great to help out so many well deserving charities”
