Social Responsibility; Social Impact
We are supporting our chosen partner charities that align with our focus areas for social responsibility and social impact. Our team has chosen two of these charities by popular vote: Momentum as our health & well-being partner and the Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre in South Africa as our transcending adversity partner. The other charities are longer standing partners: the Walking with Brandon Foundation and Macmillan.
Find out more about our partnerships and current fundraising activities below:
The funds we raise from Tough Mudder 2018 will go to Momentum - a charity local to our Surbiton office and that supports children - and their families - diagnosed with cancer or a life limiting condition.
The Walking with Brandon Foundation:
Our partnership with the Walking with Brandon Foundation is contributing towards accessible and tailored transport for disabled people with paralysis in Cape Town.

Annual Macmillan Coffee Morning:
Every year the entire Surbiton team releases their inner Mary Berry and bakes a selection of homemade treats to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan is funded by charitable donations, enabling the provision of constant support to those diagnosed with cancer and their families. Macmillan offers all types of assistance from financial to work advice as well as a shoulder to lean on when those affected need to talk.
Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre:
The Durbanville Quad Centre is a residence for 12 quadriplegics who are supported by devoted carers who look after their daily needs. The Centre is run with the assistance of the QuadPara association of South Africa. The house receives very little funding from the government. We work on various initiatives to raise funds to enable living in the self-help Centre, allowing the residents to take control of and be responsible for their lives.
