Giving something back.
We believe businesses should give something back to the communities they work in. Therefore we are actively involved with charities and community groups in the Harlow, Essex and Hertfordshire areas.
Essex Wildlife Trust
We're based in Essex and, contrary to popular belief, Essex has many areas of countryside offering peace and beauty, and a wide variety of wildlife. This is a benefit to everyone who lives in the county which we want to be preserved for future generation. Therefore we're happy to support Essex Wildlife Trust as a Silver Sponsor.
Essex Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity. It has more than 33,000 members, manages and protects over 8,200 acres of land on 87 nature reserves, 2 nature parks and runs 10 visitor centres.
The aim of Essex Wildlife Trust is to Protect Wildlife for the Future and for the people of Essex.
We have sponsored guide dogs through their training since 2009. We regularly blog about their progress.
First was Otis, a handsome black Lab, who since 2010 has been a fully trained guide dog working with a young man in Derby.
Next was Snowy, who has reached advanced training, but was found to lack the high levels of concentration required for a guide dog.
In 2013 we started sponsoring Truffle. Truffle started Guide Dog Training School in October 2014. Since 2015 she is living and working with a blind lady called Pat, who says "she is a marvellous companion and I have so much confidence in her when we go out".
Legend was our next sponsored pup, starting in late 2015. There's news on her progress here.
Steve, our CEO, is a volunteer and trustee of The Chocolate Run, a charity that supports the homeless in Harlow.
He ran the Harlow 10 Mile to support them in 2014, then the 2015 London marathon, and the 2016 Brighton marathon.
