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 are thrilled to be partnering with Chilterns MS Centre for 2018 and are hoping to raise even more to support the great work they do.

Rumsey’s names the Chilterns MS Centre as its charity of the year
Rumsey’s Handmade Chocolates has chosen the Chilterns MS Centre to be its charity of the Year for 2018. The award-winning chocolatier, based in Wendover and Thame, will raise much-needed funds to enable the continued treatment and support of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) from the local charity’s Wendover centre.
As well as donating their delicious cakes and chocolates, Rumsey’s will be involved in events, including the charity’s MS Awareness Week “Caring Cuppa” campaign. Rumsey’s staff also hopes to run the charity’s Prestwood 5k and 10k in May.
Kate Rumsey, Business Director, says ‘Rumsey’s Handmade Chocolates charity partnership is voted for by all our employees in the Thame and Wendover chocolateries. I’m thrilled my colleagues chose the Chilterns MS Centre for 2018 as it’s such a wonderful place. The main thing that struck me about the Centre was the sociable and positive atmosphere. It was a joy to meet the MS members, volunteers and staff and I am looking forward to seeing how Rumsey’s can raise lots of money for the charity through baking, running - and of course chocolate-making!”
“Everyone here at the Chilterns MS Centre whooped with joy when we heard Rumsey’s have taken us as their charity of the year!” says Hannah Asquith, the charity’s Head of Fundraising and Communications. “We’re a friendly and ambitious charity that’s determined to raise awareness of the support we offer local people affected by MS. Having a high street presence in Wendover and Thame will help us reach further into our local communities.” She continues “We have a personal relationship with every company that supports us.
