At Bell Integration we believe we have a responsibility to support local communities. Particularly at a time when soaring cost of living increases are having a significant impact on people’s lives.

Earlier this year we asked our colleagues to nominate a charity whose work best reflected the workplace values that are close to their hearts. We’re delighted to announce that our employees have voted to select Family Action as our corporate charity of choice.

Founded in 1869, today Family Action works with over 60,000 families and over 330,000 children through more than 200 community-based and national services.

Dedicated to providing practical, emotional and financial support to families facing multi and complex issues, its services cover children, young people, adults and families who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation across the country.

 

Values that resonate with our people

Committed to transforming lives and making a difference to families that are struggling to thrive in today’s challenging times, Family Action’s values truly resonated with our employees and our workplace values in a number of ways:

  • Family Action regularly evaluates and adapts its programmes to ensure it can respond effectively to new and evolving needs. Committed to innovation, it constantly seeks to improve its services so it can better meet service users’ needs.
  • A national charity with an incredibly local focus, the charity’s outcomes-based work ethic has won widespread recognition.
  • It’s ‘can do’ and ‘people focused’ holistic approach incorporates health and wellbeing and is founded on the principle that everyone has a right to equality and inclusion.

Working towards a better future – together

Over the coming months, our people will be getting involved in donating time, volunteering and undertaking fund raising activities on behalf of Family Action. They will also be able to boost their contribution to the charity in other ways. These include:

  •  Give As You Earn – an HMRC-approved scheme that allows employees to donate to Family Action from their pre-tax income.
  • Sponsorship Match – Bell Integration will match any funds raised by employees for our partner charity through their sponsorship of sporting events and other fund raising activities.

Havant Rugby Club & Bell Integration Raise £1,068 for Family Action

On Saturday 3rd Feb, Havant Rugby Club very generously used their annual Ladies Lunch to fundraise for Family Action. The Ladies Lunch is a firm favourite in the calendar at the club and celebrates the achievements of women involved with the club and rugby in general.

Support from both the Bell Integration and Hamilton Rentals business units, in the form of a bumper selection of raffle prizes – an iPad and various gift vouchers for lucky winners, helped us to see a total raised of over one thousand pounds – not a small feat in the current economic climate.

On the pitch, the Havant 1st XV Men took on the London Welsh in what was described as a game ‘not for the faint hearted’, well-fought and persistence from the Havant team saw them achieve a 32 – 25 win, the full match report can be found here.

Following on from the success of the Ladies Lunch, on Saturday 2nd March, John Davenport was presented with a cheque on behalf of Family Action by Club President Jonny Mangnell, pictured here pitch side with the team.

The Family Action Toy Appeal: Christmas 2023

Family Action’s Toy Appeal aims to make Christmas magic for the children and young people it works with by giving them a gift they may otherwise not have had.

In the past five years, the charity has distributed over 50,000 presents to families in need. For many young people, the present they receive via Family Action’s Toy Appeal will be the only one they will get at Christmas.

Each year, the charity asks its corporate charity partners to take part in the Toy Appeal. Which is why this year, we were delighted to be lending a hand in two ways: by raising money and buying gifts that were gift wrapped and dropped off to Family Action, and helped to make a difference at Christmas.
