Welcomm Support our Local Community

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.


An Important Part of our Company Culture

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.

Our Charity Partners


LOROS Hospice

LOROS deliver free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill patients, their family and carers across Leicestershire.

Since 2019, we have raised £5000+ for the charity by running a karaoke evening, a static bike ride, completing a London-Paris bike ride, and volunteering. One of our employees even donated their overtime pay to the charity, a fundraising effort that was matched by the Company.


ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the national charity of the British Army, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families when they are in need. 

In 2020, two of our team took part in a sponsored head shave #BuzzForTheBrave. Due to lock down restrictions, this was carried out live over Facebook so that we could all watch from the safety of our homes. The event raised £765 for the charity.


MacMillan Cancer Support

Founded in 1911, Macmillan Cancer Support provides physical, financial and emotional support for people with cancer.

Each year, Team Welcomm take part in the Macmillan coffee morning. Our staff bake, buy and eat lots of cake to support this amazing charity. In 2019, over the course of just one morning we raised over £200 for Macmillan, awarding prizes to the best home baker and ‘fake bake’!


The Air Ambulance Service

The Air Ambulance Service operates the national Children’s Air Ambulance and the local air ambulance services for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.

In 2018, Welcomm held a charity auction evening where our our employees offered services such as babysitting, car washing and a wine tasting evening, hosted by Welcomm’s CEO himself! This event raised a whopping £5,000 for the Air Ambulance Service and the British Heart Foundation.  


The British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation funds over £100 million of life-saving research each year into heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them. 

In 2018, Welcomm staff donated a range of services to our charity auction that helped raise a total of £5,000 for the British Heart Foundation and the Air Ambulance Service. A full auction brochure was produced which included home bakes, lawn cutting services, a canal cruise and even a chance to pie a Welcomm Director in the face with whipped cream!


Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK fund scientists, doctors and nurses to achieve their mission of helping beat cancer sooner. They also provide cancer information to the public.

In support of the ‘Race For Life’ event, as well as the members of our team who have been directly impacted by this incredible charity’s work, in 2019 the business dressed up in bright pink and baked pink cakes to help raise vital funds. Our IT Manager donned his finest pink tutu for the occasion, and our Operations Director took video calls in bunny ears!

Supporting Customer and Partner CSR Efforts

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. 

SPONSORSHIP

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.

EVENT ATTENDANCE

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.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

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.
