Urban Outreach Charity Campaign 

For our 2020 Christmas charity campaign, the AppLocum team held a fundraiser for the local charity Urban Outreach. This winter, Urban Outreach are supporting 1200 vulnerable Bolton families. This is six times more than usual as a result of the devastating effects of the pandemic. The money raised will go towards providing necessities such as food and home essentials to vulnerable families.   


Thanks to the generosity of our office team and the healthcare professionals who work with us, we raised £282.26 – almost 15% more than our original target! AppLocum then doubled this bringing us to an amazing total of £564.52! Every penny will make a difference to give struggling Bolton families some hope and support.  



To help us raise money for the charity, we held a number of fun activities via video call. It was an interesting challenge to organise events whilst taking social distancing into account, but our team got involved in a big online quiz, bingo and Santa Simon paid a visit to the office – all in the name of charity. 


We also held a cutest pet competition. We loved seeing adorable pets looking up at us in our inbox each morning and the winner was…Simba! Visit the AppLocum Facebook page to see his winning smile.


Thank you 

Giving back to the community where we’ve grown is an important value to AppLocum. We look forward to holding more fundraisers in the future!


Thank you to everyone who donated to support Urban Outreach. We hope you all had a wonderful festive period and we are looking forward to working with you in 2021.
