Where we can make a difference
Volunteering and fundraising
We support volunteerism, that is offering the team the possibility of paid time away from work to volunteer in a local non-profit organisation. We want to encourage engagement with local charities and we have staff who volunteer in a variety of settings. Our MD, Richard Phelan, is involved with a children’s circus skills group which really is as exciting as it sounds, teaching unicycle riding, stilt-walking, juggling and aerial silks, to name a few!
One of our original founders, Nigel Taffs, is a skilled player of the mandolin and the ukulele and organises frequent musical events to fund-raise for local charities, as well as playing in residential care homes for the elderly.
Other voluntary work undertaken by the team include a ‘helping hands’ group offering lifts to the elderly, helping a competitive swimming club at the local leisure centre and helping at the local TADS theatre group for teenagers.
