The limitless generosity of which people are capable and the dedication that they demonstrate in making a true difference to the lives of others is something we find so incredibly heartening. Here at Sykes Cottages we’re committed to supporting charitable work far and wide.

Here a just a few of the amazing charities we actively support:

Sykes Charity of the Year, 2017: Share
Share works with homeless people in the UK, specifically people in Chester who are sleeping rough. Share also helps people who are fleeing from war-torn places like Syria and Uganda.

The PDSA is the UK’s leading vet charity. Since 1917, their mission has been to save, protect and heal pets throughout the UK. With 51 Pet Hospitals, the PDSA  help over 470,000 pets each and every year.

Bliss is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to premature and sick babies. Bliss not only supports families, but also health professionals and research into improving the care for premature and sick babies.

Chester Zoo
Chester Zoo was recently named the UK’s most visited attraction outside of London and is regarded as one of the best zoos in the world. As a world-leading conservation charity, Chester Zoo is responsible for some truly outstanding work in protecting endangered species.

Save the Family
Save the Family is a local charity that is committed to keeping families in the area of Chester together. They provide accommodation and support for families that are homeless (or at risk of becoming homeless) and support a range of complex needs.

Here you’ll find updates on the charities we support, news on fundraising activities and information on how you can get involved too.
