We empower our people to bring opportunities to the business to support the causes and charities that have made a mark on their lives. Here is a selection of some of our recent charitable giving.
Brain Tumour Charity
The Brain Tumour Charity is one of BECG Group’s charity partners, voted for by all staff. We have supported its work around raising awareness at political party conferences, training and development, campaigns and fundraising.
Each year, employees across the Group complete an impressive 14,000 ft skydive as a daring means of raising vital funds for the Charity.
Our long-term corporate partnership with the Brain Tumour Charity also includes pro bono support. Our HR team deliver training within the charity, our Managing Director has hosted research focus groups on behalf of the charity, and our policy development team are inputting into the charity’s policy development.
Hares of Hampshire
As the Creative Partner for Hares of Hampshire, a public art event taking place in 2022 to fundraise for The Murray Parish Trust, we provide pro bono design and marketing services, and have produced all collateral including video art direction, filming and editing, as well as social media content.
National Spitfire Memorial Campaign
The National Spitfire Project charity was formed to realise the vision of building a worthy monument to the men and women who designed, built, flew and maintained the Spitfire; to evoke the ‘Spirit of the Spitfire’ and represent an enduring symbol of innovation, engineering excellence, hope and courage.
The Spitfire Monument will be an evocative landmark on Southampton’s waterfront, in close proximity to the original Supermarine factory, paying tribute to a proud chapter in local and national history As well as commemorating Southampton’s engineering heritage and the role people played in what became a great national effort, it will attract tourism and serve as a local point for local regeneration. The Group supports the charity on a pro bono basis with social media, marketing and media relations.
Murray Parish Trust
We are proud to have supported The Murray Parish Trust for many years and have worked closely with the charity on a number of major fundraising campaigns.
We are supporting the launch and the appeal of #2MillionSteps in partnership with Southampton Hospital Charity to raise more money for research and life-saving equipment. The work ensures children have the best access to emergency care.
Investing in mental health in
We donate annually to The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity to support its delivery of emergency financial and emotional support that many workers and families within the construction industry need to improve their wellbeing and life satisfaction.
We also support The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity by promoting its initiatives, such as the Construction Industry Helpline app and its Building Mental Health programme, to our database of over 20,000 built environment professionals and social followers.
Investing time to make a difference
As part of our employee benefits package, we gift one holiday day each year to all staff to be used for voluntary contributions to society. Here are just some of the causes that our people have generously given their time to support:
- Our Birmingham team combined their volunteer days to provide pro bono communications support to St Basil’s, a Birmingham based youth homelessness charity, ahead of its 50th anniversary year campaign. The campaigned raised £1m to fund a Live-Work centre which will offer young people an apprenticeship and affordable rented accommodation.
- Our London team commits time to supporting the East End Community Foundation, which each year provides a Christmas care package to isolated elderly residents in the East End. The team funds care packages, and helps to put the bags together, as well as delivering them to care homes and spending time with the residents.
I was really pleased to use my charity day to support the NHS’ efforts to vaccinate the UK.
As a volunteer vaccinator I was doing something completely different from my day job so it
was a really interesting new challenge. It was also great to play a small part in helping
things get back towards normality.
SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER
Staying safe while staying at home – but having no home to go to was the harsh reality for homeless people during the COVID pandemic lockdowns. Temporary accommodation
providers opened their doors to help get people off the streets into safety. I was able to use
my volunteer day at Winchester Beacon, giving a few hours of my time each week to
support its staff and residents.
