Our Chosen Charities 2018

Published on 1st Feb 18

Being at the heart of our local community and helping where possible is something The Directory Group is driven to do. In previous years, our Chosen Charities scheme has been effective regards raising awareness and money for local organisations.

This month, we share our new Chosen Charities in which we pledge to support the following causes by offering free publicity within our magazines and online over the forthcoming year. In addition to this, our team will find some time to volunteer in one way or another, as well as holding a fundraiser at our Petersfield based office.

The Elizabeth Foundation
Based at Cosham and serving the whole area

The national charity supports infants and pre-school children with hearing loss and their families. It helps babies and children with all degrees of hearing loss learn to listen and speak. It does this by providing pre-school education services at its Family Centre, along with help, support and  advice for families all  over the UK. www.elizabeth-foundation.org
