As a successful, local, family-run business, with many of our employees coming from the local area, we are grateful to the home we have in the South West of England. Supporting and giving back to the community has always been extremely important to us at Wessex.
We take great pleasure in being able to give back to the local and wider community and each year we support a significant number of community projects, schools, clubs, charities and individuals.
As well as providing financial support we are keen to actively engage in community projects and are often able to volunteer some of our staff’s time and expertise. We do not generally publicise our philanthropic activity unless the promotion of our involvement is in the interest of those we are supporting. In addition to our philanthropic interests we regularly sponsor events, teams and individuals in return for brand promotion and many of these sponsorship agreements have a charitable purpose.
We also encourage and support our staff in raising funds for their own chosen charity. Every year we seek nominations and staff vote for the cause they wish to support for the year.
Through a number of fun events, often involving fancy dress and manager humiliation(!), we are usually able to raise around £5,000 each year. This year we are supporting the Stars Appeal for Salisbury District Hospital and last year the Staff managed to raise over £6,000 for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance!
Sadly we are not able to help everyone in need, but If you are involved with a charity or charitable project and think we might be able to help you in some way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
