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.
In 2017, we donated almost £25,000 to our chosen charities and a further £25,000 in 2018, along with other special causes.
We are anticipating that this figure will be even higher in 2019.
In October, Quanta hosted a fun-filled Oktoberfest themed fundraising afternoon to support Cancer Research UK - Breast Cancer. We raised a total of £2,114.
The afternoon included Fancy Dress, T-Shirt Sales, Pretzel Baking Competition, Barrel Race and many more competitions and games. Plus, all proceeds from the bar also went to Cancer Research UK. We look forward to hosting this annual event.
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.
Wendover Juniors FC
Quanta are proud sponsors of the Under 13’s Wendover Junior Football Club. The sponsorship began in September 2018 and will continue through the coming 2019/20 season.
The club and age group have a great philosophy; not only do all players work their hardest but their support for each other is impeccable and whilst the victories are fantastic, this would not be possible without all (approx.) 50 of the kids working together.
