Supporting Amazing Actions
Everybody deserves a decent, healthy and safe place to live and sleep. We actively work to help achieve this by encouraging everyone in our team to be socially and ethically aware and by donating our time, skills and energies to raise money for relevant charities.
To mark the occasion of gaining an extra hour in bed on October 29th 2013, we asked our customers to nominate a local projects, charity and community scheme for us to give to. It was very inspiring to read about all the local schemes, but the charity that won, and touched our hearts the most, was Amaze. They do Amazing work offering information, advice and support for parents of children with special needs.
Shelter is a charity that works to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing. They do this by giving advice, information and advocacy to people in housing need, and by campaigning for lasting political change to end the housing crisis for good.
E17 Art Trail
We support e17 art trail, a local community event in Walthamstow, where our workshop is based. Promoting the area and supporting the local community in which our employees work is important to us, whether through financial sponsorship, or offering our skills, time and expertise, we are happy to help.
The Big Issue Foundation
The Big Issue offers some of the most excluded people in the country a unique opening to take some control of their lives and earn a legitimate income. Vendors make a personal choice to buy their magazines with their own money, taking charge of their finances and sales whilst developing the skills required to retail to the public.
Start Garden Party
The Prince of Wales opened up his gardens in September 2010, and created a unique festival in the heart of London.This fantastic event was called A Garden Party to Make a Difference. It was aimed to encourage people across the UK to celebrate sustainable living and to take clear, practical and simple steps towards a better future. A cause we are proud to support.
