We like to put something back into the communities that support us. Because we spend far too much time sitting at desks, we are happiest supporting community groups and clubs where people get up and move around. So we are sponsoring several local sports clubs and their youth teams. But we also support some locally-based charities, like the RAF Association.
We are delighted to be helping our heroes a little, by providing subsidised storage space for Help for Heroes at our Telford site. Help for Heroes mission is to deliver an enduring national network of support for our wounded and their families. They work to inspire and enable those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential. If you would like to support their work click this link: http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/donate/
We are pleased to report The Music Charity’s continued success. To date (Christmas 2012) they have distributed over 300 musical instruments to some of the world’s poorest children. We continue to provide storage space for the instruments they collect, and as the charity grows, we are making more space available to them. If you, or anyone you know, has a second hand musical intrument they no longer want, please drop it in to Ian or Michelle at The Space Place in Telford, and they will make sure it is added to those the Charity passes on around the world.
We are delighted to be able to support the efforts of Telford-based The Music Charity. The Music Charity, sponsored by local MP Mark Pritchard and others, “recycles” what we might call “previously cherished” musical instruments to children around the world.
Skillshare International is an international volunteering and development organisation. They work in partnership with communities and local organisations in 13 countries in Africa and Asia to reduce poverty, injustice and inequality. We are helping them by providing subsidised storage that helps with their pioneering work.
Support Our Soldiers (SOS) exists to encourage and provide support for members of the British Armed Forces on overseas operations and their families at home…
Since their launch in March 2003 over 90,000 morale boosting care parcels have been sent to those on the front line in Afghanistan and Iraq. They support our boys and girls throughout their tour, everyday, not just at Christmas! We we have supported them by providing free space in Leicester to collect and compile packages to go to the troops…
The Royal Airforces Association exists to help RAF personnel and their families. We can only imagine what some of them go through in the service of our country, so we’re happy to help their Association by providing free storage space.
Here we really are sponsoring a community sports team. The Tigers are now in their second season under fans’ ownership, and are going from strength to strength. We figured one of the most useful things we could do for the Tigers was to give them practical help, storing gear and kit for them at our Telford site.
If you, or your community-based organisation could use similar help, give us a ring. We’ll see what we can do.
The Hornets go from strength to strength, and we’re really pleased to be supporting them. Click on their logo so see their latest news.
We can’t claim (much!) responsibility for it, but we are delighted that AFC Telford United, one of our major sponsorees (if there’s such a word) has just been promoted to National League level. Well done them!
