As 2021 comes to a close we wanted to reflect on all the fantastic charities that we have been proud to support this year.
At borwell, we love to support local charities each year. Charities that may be slightly lesser known, that may not get the wider public’s attention in the press or on the news. Local charities play a vital role in the community, and in Worcester, we are blessed with fantastic charitable communities who raise funds for their respective causes with the help of local businesses like ourselves. The impact of local charities cannot be underestimated. They shape and positively impact the local community through hosting events or providing support in many different forms. From breast cancer awareness to helping the homeless there are many things that companies such as ourselves can do to support such causes.
This year, why not get involved in arranging a food box to donate to a local foodbank. We, and many other companies have prepared a donation to the local Foodbanks in time for Christmas, organised each year by our friends at ISO QSL.
Did you know that the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven supports up to 800 women and 7 men who are diagnosed with breast cancer in Worcestershire each year? This October, for breast cancer awareness month we co-hosted an event in the Malvern Hills Science park to raise funds and awareness with special guest speaker Mr Steven Thrush, an industry leading breast surgeon and founder of the unit. We were very happy to hand over the cheque for the funds we raised for this charity. (see below)
Over the year we have done our bit for many other charities including Woo Fest during the summer, where we celebrated and sponsored up and coming Worcestershire musicians, whilst raising funds for St. Richards Hospice. On the other end of the scale we even walked our dogs on the big Longfield Hospice charity dog walk, getting muddy for a good cause is always the way to go! And most recently we had a night at the races to support Wooden Spoon at Worcestershire County Cricket Club. It’s safe to say we didn’t win much on the races but it rounded out the year very nicely.
If you would like to get involved and support any of the charities and causes that we mentioned above please do consider contacting them on their websites to discover how you can raise funds in 2022 to and help local Worcestershire charities.
