Rumsey's Charity Support
Every year our team at Rumsey's vote for a local charity to support. In 2017 we raised over £500 for Florence Nightingale Hospice as well as providing plenty of our chocolates. We did even better in 2018 when we supported The Chilterns MS Centre and raised over £3,000! Rumsey's employees voted to give a second year of support to Chilterns MS Centre for 2019 and are hoping to raise even more to support the great work they do.

Partnership creates chocolate heaven for the Chilterns MS Centre as Rumsey’s raises over £3300 for local people affected by multiple sclerosis
The staff and customers at Rumsey’s Handmade Chocolates have raised a staggering £3385 for the Chilterns MS Centre through selling scones & chocolates, running raffles, store collections and more. They enjoyed themselves so much doing it that they have decided to continue to support the Centre in 2019 as well.
The money that the Wendover and Thame based chocolatier has raised will make a real difference to the lives of people in Wendover and the Chilterns area that have been affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). It will enable the Wendover-based charity to continue to provide physical, practical and emotional support for those living with MS, and their families, for as long as they need.
Kate Rumsey, says ‘“We are so thrilled to have raised such a large sum for the Chilterns MS Centre, the work they do is incredible and it’s been an absolute pleasure to get to know some of the staff and members. We have set the bar high for 2019 now; but we like a challenge!”
“We are absolutely thrilled with the amount of support that the staff and customers of Rumsey’s have given to the Centre over the past year and we are incredibly humbled that they have chosen us as their charity of the year again for 2019. We are really excited to work with them on activities for the next 12 months. Thank you to everyone who has been involved.” Sharon Cooper, Corporate Fundraiser at the Chilterns MS Centre.
