For many years we have been very privileged to be able to help others less fortunate than ourselves.
Quanta supports four charities each year, principally through monies being allocated each time one of many work activities is undertaken by different colleagues across the business in the course of their everyday work. For example, a colleague can contribute by:
- - Processing a CV
- - Arranging an interview
- - Placing a candidate
- - Issuing an invoice
These are just a few of the tasks that then means an amount is automatically added to the ‘charity pot’. This is then split between our four charities. This means that every employee has a part to play in the raising funds for our chosen charities.
In addition, regular charity days are held at Quanta, with activities such as bake offs, quizzes, and fancy dress competitions, which are taken very seriously and are always accompanied by a barbecue being fired up by our directors.
St PadTrigg's Day Extravaganza
Our team joined together to celebrate St Patrick’s Day (PadTrigg’s in honour of our founder Stephen Trigg) and offer support to the earthquake appeal in Turkey and Syria. The team raised money by buying St Padtrigg’s Day merchandise (including some very snazzy t-shirts) and purchasing drinks tokens for the in-office bar 🍻 All funds raised were donated to the British Red Cross’s Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal. The fantastic event was a hit, with lots of money raised - all of which could not be possible without sponsorship from our generous partners, WhiteFin Contracting Solutions. Thank you!
A local charity that helps children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
The Pepper Foundation funds the hospice at home children's nursing team throughout the Chilterns area of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
This innovative paediatric team, (known as the Pepper Nurses), offers specialist palliative care and support to children with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness.
A charity based in Buckinghamshire, providing support to families with autistic or disabled children.
Thomley is based in Worminghall, in Buckinghamshire and is a place for people of all abilities and disabilities.
It brings together disabled people, their families, carers and friends, together with experienced and nurturing staff who understand their needs.
A local charity providing critical support and long-term solutions for homeless people and those in poverty.
DENS tackles homelessness and poverty in the Dacorum area of Hertfordshire, by giving people the chance to build a better future.
One of the main reasons Quanta chose to support DENS is because of how misrepresented homeless people are. Homelessness can happen to people from all walks of life (and for so many different reasons).
The Swan Youth Project
The Swan Youth Project works to support young people by providing an environment in which their personalities and life skills can be developed, enabling them to become productive, contributing members of society.
The charity is situated around 100m from the Quanta office! It was in jeopardy of becoming derelict at the time but has now been fully developed and equipped with many activities to provide a substantial recreational facility for the young people of the area.
Luton Town Ladies FC Reserves
Quanta are proud sponsors of Luton Town Ladies FC Reserves Football Team.
CEO Spencer Trigg says “when the opportunity to sponsor Luton Town FC Ladies Reserves came around, we jumped at the chance. We are in awe of the strides that women’s football has taken and are delighted to be able to support a local ladies team. Football is more than just a sport for us at Quanta, it is about community and uniting as one team – a value that we live by every day”.
