As a friendly employer based in Bournemouth, we are committed to investing back into our local community and supporting others around us. Over £21,000 was donated to our three nominated charities in 2016. We're proud of the impact we're making in our local community, changing the lives of all ages.
Our aim within Health-on-Line and our Charity Panel is to raise money, both internally in our offices, and externally, through creative fundraising. We realise the benefit of not only supporting our chosen charities as a company, but also the value of charities that are close to our employees hearts, which is why we have a fund also available to support our employees own fundraising efforts outside of work.
Our Chosen Charities in 2017
Our staff have elected to support another three charities throughout 2017, all doing a tremendous work with people of all ages. With events such as our 'Valentines Tuesday' in the office, the notorious Health-on-Line Football Tournament and a Health-on-Line Tough Mudder team it is hoped we will be able to support these three charities generously!
Bournemouth Hospital Charity: Dementia Ward
Our fundraising work for Bournemouth Hospital Charity will be put towards the Dementia ward in 2017 which takes place across 4 wards. Over 2000 people were admitted to Bournemouth Hospital in 2016 with Dementia and have benefited from the work that BHC do - whether through techniques to aid memory recall, or through the support that the hospital give the relatives at troubling times. More information on their work can be found on the Bournemouth Hospital website.
This is the second year we will be supporting Diverse Abilities who works with those with physical and learning difficulties. Diverse Abilities provides a range of services including Langside School - a special day school for children; housing for people throughout Dorset providing 24/7 care and a day support centre to name a few. Each year Diverse Abilities provides around 250,000 hours of support for children and adults across Dorset. Visit Diverse Abilities website to find out more about the support they provide.
The Rainbow Trust is a national charity, supporting around 2000 families around the country who have a child with a terminal illness. Providing support to not only the children themselves, the Family Support Workers at the Rainbow Trust also help the families of those impacted, including parents and siblings, and are on call 24 hours a day to help in any way possible. Find out more about the charity and the work they do by visiting the Rainbow Trust website.
