National children’s charity Molly Olly’s Wishes has signed a two-year lease on their first ever office space, thanks to the support and help of ethical family business and total supply chain solutions specialists, Oakland International.
The charity, based in Warwick, was launched by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw following the death of their daughter, Molly, who after a five-year battle with a rare kidney cancer died in 2011. Molly Olly’s Wishes has since gone on to support thousands of children around the country living with a terminal or life-limiting illnesses.
Opening their first dedicated HQ, Molly Olly’s Wishes opened its doors just before Molly would have turned 18 on the 8th October.
With their head office in Redditch and facilities at Bardon, Corby, Worksop and Dublin, Ireland, Oakland’s policy has always been to ensure wherever they operate that they try to give something back to the local community, as well as launching a local children’s charity, Oakland Foundation, in 2012.
Oakland International Co-Founder Sallie Attwell commented: “We are delighted to support Rachel and Molly Olly’s Wishes with the opening of their first office building as it gives them the high street presence they need to promote the charity and raise awareness of the amazing work they do supporting children and families across the country.”
The charity has so far raised more than £2.5m and helped more than 15,000 children from new-born to age 18 by granting individual wishes.
