We are proud to play our part in supporting and making a difference to local businesses, charities and organisations.
As a team of local people, at Welcomm we take our corporate social responsibilities seriously. We are very active in our community, proudly supplying communication solutions to many local businesses, fundraising for our charity partners, as well as sponsoring and volunteering at local events.
CSR initiatives are driven by our highly involved Board of Directors. Participation in charitable events and volunteering opportunities are popular with our employees. Speaking of our latest fundraising efforts, Welcomm’s Operations Director Rachel Williamson shares:
“It’s really humbling to witness the reality of each charity’s work first-hand and we’re so pleased to contribute, even if it is only a small part, towards the continued success of the not-for-profit organisations we support each year.”
We are proud to have had our charitable efforts recognised by being awarded ‘Community Finalist’ in the Market Harborough District Business Awards.
Because of the great partnerships we build with our customers and partners, we welcome everyone to get involved with our CSR activities throughout the year. That is why we believe it is important for us to support the charitable efforts of others too.
This year we were thrilled to support our customer Bournville Catering Equipment Limited, for the third year running, by sponsoring their Glamour and Goodness Charity Ball. The event helped raise funds for Cure Leukaemia and Brain Tumour Research.
In 2020 we also sponsored marathon runner Jade Haines, Director at Route 1 Express Couriers Limited, as she raised vital funds for Autism East Midlands.
Over our 30 years in business, we have attended a vast number of customer charity events to help raise money for a variety of causes.
In 2016 we attended a charity ball in support of The Miscarriage Foundation to show our support for a charity that helped a very good customer of ours through an incredibly difficult time in life. We also regularly attend LOROS Hospice functions, including their virtual program of events.
Through our partnership with Gamma, we have ran, drove and cycled miles to raise money for a selection of not-for-profit organisations, including SpecialEffect and Action Through Enterprise.
In 2018, we won Gamma’s Charity Football Championship and since it’s creation, we have attended Gamma’s annual charity bike ride. Learn more about our participation in Gamma sporting events here.
