As a firm we feel that we have a role to play in supporting local events, organisations and initiatives and generally trying to make a positive contribution to the community most of our staff live and work in.
We are very proud to have been involved in supporting a large number of events and initiatives over the years.
We also sponsor local sports clubs, including the Petersfield Rugby Club, and societies such as the Petersfield Music Society.
Apart from the firm itself showing its support, we actively encourage our staff to get involved individually or in teams. Where possible, we provide time and financial support to allow individuals or teams to get involved.
We welcome opportunities to sponsor local events and organisations and would be happy to hear from you if you have a proposal that you would like us to consider.
Charity of the Year
Although we continue to be involved in a broad range of sponsorship events we have decided to focus our fund raising efforts on one particular charity per year.
We therefore choose a different Charity each year. That Charity is selected by nominations put forward by members of our staff and an announcement is made at the start of each year.
This year we are very pleased to announce that Canine Partners for Independence is our Charity of the Year for 2013.
Canine Partners is a national charity that trains assistance dogs to transform the lives of people with disabilities, including members of HM Armed Forces. The dogs help with everyday tasks such as unloading washing machines, opening and closing doors, undressing, shopping, retrieving dropped items and fetching help in an emergency. www.caninepartners.org.uk
Past Charities of the Year
2012 - TLC, which stands for Tending, Listening and Comforting. TLC is a small local charity which provides a befriending service for people in the community with life limiting conditions, their carers and families. The charity also fund raises to provide free complementary therapies for clients and carers.
