Bass House Charities
Bass House supports 2 charities.
CLIC Sargent
CLIC Sargent provides help and support to families with children and young people who have cancer by creating fundraising events such as half marathons, fun runs and charity shop volunteers. Bass house have donated a considerable amount of money so far, and we are striving to donate even more in the future, as we believe that this is a very worthwhile cause.
Everyday a child or young person gets diagnosed with cancer. It’s not just them that need help; it’s the families, too.
Fairtrade is an organisation that helps the people who provide our fruit; coffee, chocolate etc. get a fair amount of money for providing us with it. By supporting fairtrade, we can help those people get the money they deserve
