Ashtons Raising £10,000 for Life’s Great Causes

Living Magazines Ashtons Great Causes Charity logos

Ashtons are proud to be launching their 2022 For Life’s Great Causes charity campaign.

For life’s great causes

As you may know, every year, Ashtons are actively involved in numerous events and support several local charities. This year is no different! Ashtons are now actively fundraising to reach their target of £10,000 which they will donate to charities within our local community.

They appreciate how difficult it’s been for many charities during the pandemic and are therefore determined to make this year’s campaign bigger and better than ever!

The shortlisted charities

A shortlist of 20 local charities has been compiled from nominations received by the public and Ashtons are delighted to announce that this year’s shortlist are:

  • The Pepper Foundation
  • The Ataxia Telangiectasia Society
  • Earthworks
  • Herts Welcomes Refugees
  • Carers in Hertfordshire
  • Potential Kids

  • Essex & Herts Air Ambulance

The online poll

Ashtons would love the local community to help decide which local causes deserve a little extra financial support this year. An online poll will be open for the public to vote for their favourite charity on Friday 14 January 2022 at The poll will run until Friday 4 February when the winning three charities will be announced.

How will the money be distributed?

Rather than just one charity receiving £10,000, Ashtons distribute the funds 50% / 30% / 20% to the top 3 charities as voted for via the online poll. The good news is there’s no need to bungee jump or bathe in baked beans to raise money for your favourite charity, simply cast your vote online!
