Here are a few kind words from the charities and organisations we support and work with.

“Companies like Gosschalks who have a commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility are a huge asset to this city. Their ongoing support of public sector initiatives, charities and the local community results in real and sustained benefits for the people of Kingston upon Hull.”

Chris Howell, Senior Partnership Officer at Hull City Council

“Moving into Gosschalks in 2011 has been a catalyst for increased success for The Smile Foundation. Working alongside the teams at Gosschalks has opened up a host of new opportunities and relationships for the charity. Being able to tap into the wealth of knowledge in each department has enabled Smile to provide a range of charitable projects across Hull & East Yorkshire with the expertise they need to succeed.”

Andrew Barber, Charity Manager at The Smile Foundation

“The approach taken by Gosschalks is a perfect example of how charitable giving can positively impact on a community. Their intelligent approach to giving includes engaging their teams and resources instead of just the company cheque book. Their approach continues to deliver tangible benefits to a whole range of charities and community groups across our region.”

Jim Dick, Chairman of the Trustees of The Smile Foundation

“Whilst being supported by The Smile Foundation we were able to gain support from Gosschalks in areas that have made a huge difference to Downright Special. As our charity develops we have found we need more guidance on the back office items and legal and HR requirements and working with Ted Flanagan and his team has been refreshing and immensely helpful.”

Janette Waddingham, Downright Special

“After receiving a large delivery of chocolate biscuits, tea and coffee this morning that could sink a ship, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Richard Perry and the team at Gosschalks for this kind and very tasty donation! Taking time out with a family to chat over a cuppa and a chocolate biscuit is a huge thing when dealing with some of the challenges our families face. Your kindness is greatly appreciated and will be enjoyed for many months. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.”

Sara Ness, Sunshine House

“Being able to ask expert advice in a welcoming environment has enabled us to take further steps forward to become a registered charity. Our huge list of questions was answered in layman’s terms which made me feel at ease and has helped make the process less daunting and more exciting!”

June Cooke, Butterflies Group (Hull Memory Clinic)
