Supporting nine national and local charities


26th June 2023


Charity, Perspective News

For the second year running, we have made donations totalling £6,000 to nine local and national charities nominated by the winning teams at our recent conference. 

These are all causes which have touched the lives of over 400 of our staff in some way. All of them richly deserve our support. Giving something back to the communities around our offices is central to what we believe is right. In addition, our people undertake volunteer days to give hand-on help to several charities where they make a real impact.

Dandelion Time: “We believe that every child has the opportunity to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment to feel loved and to be free of fear. A child referred to Dandelion Time may be

 struggling due to trauma, abuse or neglect. They may be fragile, withdrawn or showing aggression, or may have been excluded from school. We work with both the child and their family, helping them heal relationships and thrive.”

The Sara Lee Trust: “We support people in Hastings and Rother who have been diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening illness

by providing free counselling, complementary therapies and group activities specifically designed to work alongside medical treatment. Since our beginning in 1996, The Sara Lee Trust has helped thousands of people and continues to help more local people than ever before, offering high quality care to those who need it most.” 

3dadswalking: “Suicide is the biggest killer of those under 35 in the UK. We only learned this terrifying fact because our daughters took their own lives within the last 4 years. By raising awareness, we hope we can help prevent other families from being devastated by suicide. In 2022 we walked over 300 miles in memory of our daughters, Sophie, Beth and Emily, who all took their own lives. We walked to raise awareness of talking about suicide prevention and the work of PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide.” 

The winning Tracked Team donated to:

Air ambulance crews bring the Emergency Department to patients who have suffered a life threatening or life changing trauma or medical emergency, providing advanced critical care to save lives. On average an air ambulance can reach someone in urgent need within 15 minutes. Air ambulance charities are collectively dispatched to over 100 lifesaving missions each day across the UK; each mission is funded almost entirely by the generosity of local communities.” 

Cancer Research: “Cancer is relentless, but so are we. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or know someone who has, we provide practical information on everything from symptoms and screening, to coping after treatment. We want to bring about a world where everybody can lead longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer. Our scientists have been at the forefront of cancer research since 1902.”

Beat eating disorders: “Founded in 1989 as the Eating Disorders Association, our mission is to end the pain and suffering caused by eating disorders.Around 1.25 million people in the UK suffer from these illnesses, many in secret. They are of all ages, genders and backgrounds – eating disorders do not discriminate. They steal childhoods, devastate relationships and pull families apart. But, with the right treatment and support, recovery is possible.”

The Movement Centre Oswestry: “Our Oswestry office has been a long term supporter of this locally based national charity for many years. It helps children reach their full potential through Targeted Training, a specialist children’s physiotherapy, delivered by experienced therapy team. Its assistance sits outside of NHS funding.” 

Community Heartbeat Trust: “The Community Heartbeat Trust is a charity whose aims are to help and support communities in the correct provision of defibrillators, but in sustainable, resilient and governance led manner. This increases the chances of survival from cardiac arrest. So far, over 1,000 former BT telephone boxes have been converted into community defibrillator sites with impressive results.”

Muscular Dystrophy: “Every day Muscular Dystrophy UK is working towards a future with effective treatments and ultimately cures for all muscle-wasting conditions and where there are no limits in life for people who are affected. We believe in this vision this as passionately now as we did when we were established in 1959. This is an encouraging time with many clinical trials in development, and several treatments either available or emerging on the horizon.”
