Donations to Charities
During this unprecedented time for all we recognise the difficulty in charities being able to raise funds during periods of lock down or tiered restrictions.
In response to this we have made a number of donations to charities of our clients choosing or charities close to our hearts. The response from the charities (and our clients who welcomed our initiative) was very heart warming and something that we are looking to repeat.
The Charities we donated to include:
All these projects support isolated, elderly, vulnerable families and anyone in need.
Emily Ash Trust
We are proud to support the Emily Ash Trust as our chosen charity.
The Trust exists to support families who have children suffering with cancer…
Often families have to give up work and live without income for 1-2 years. They are often forced to live apart while one parent lives at the hospital for months on end during their child’s treatment. Families split up which adds to the trauma and stress. Feelings of isolation, fear and worry create stress enough to make parents ill.
Many children survive the cancer but the treatment protocols are harsh and can leave children permanently disabled, blind or perhaps deaf. Siblings can go off the rails while parents devote all their time and attention to a sick child. Teenagers fall between child and adult care provision and can suffer from low self esteem and confidence as their appearance changes during treatment
Coping with the grief of losing a child is particularly difficult, some well timed support makes a huge difference.
The Trust is a rapid response and flexible group that supports families with some of the needs they develop when their children face cancer. The group is entirely voluntary and targets its activity by working closely with hospital staff who recognise and highlight families that need help.

We are proud to be part of Banstead in Bloom this year and recently planted this beautiful wheelbarrow in our hometown.
Our wheelbarrow is located at the top of Banstead’s vibrant high street and moments away from our headquarters! We relocated from Cheam Village in 2014, wanting to find somewhere to provide our employees with a central location for their commute to work, a well-equipped high street with plenty of good food, a park to relax at lunch times and great general sense of community for the business to be a part of, Banstead was naturally the perfect fit. We are grateful to be one of Banstead’s many successful businesses and look forward to continuing our support to the community in years to come.
