Charity Roundup 2019 1200 792 Milestone Flooring

The year 2019 may have been and gone in a flash, but throughout that time we were able to achieve some great things. We completed a fantastic selection of flooring projects from RIBA Award-winning sculpture park buildings to nationwide kitchen contracts. While we were kept busy throughout the year, we were also able to do our bit for our local charity, the Prince of Wales Hospice through a variety of ways which you can read more about below.

The Prince of Wales Hospice provides free of charge, around the clock care and support for local people with life-limiting illnesses. Their care also extends to the carers and families of patients, who often need their help just as much.

Five A-Side Football Competition

We took part in a lively charity football tournament in support of the Prince Of Wales Hospice and the Love Me Love My Face Foundation. Our team reached the semi-final where they sadly exited the competition to the eventual tournament winners after a solid group stage showing which saw them finish in 4th overall.

Its A Knockout Competition

We raised a whopping £600 for the Prince of Wales Hospice by participating in the annual Its A Knockout charity competition.
This year we completed games over obstacles, inflatables, and lots more!

Networking Events

We have been involved in the Hospice’s Club 5 membership group which brings local businesses together to help the hospice while generating networking opportunities too. We have hosted our own and have attended a number of these throughout the year as well as additional events such as charity auctions and fundraising events.

Collections

Throughout the year we’ve had a variety of in office collections such as recycling old birthday/christmas cards, ink cartridges, stamps and the various money donation pots within the office.

Charity Bags

We’ve had regular bag collections where the team have generously donated some of their unwanted items such as clothes and toys and we completed the 30 bags for 30 years challenge.

Milestone Flag Sponsorship

We had the opportunity to contribute as a sponsor for the many volunteers who undertake challenges as part of their fundraising for the hospice. As part of this sponsorship, the volunteers carry our flag on these adventures, giving updates of where they have got to with the flag. This year our flag embarked on trips to Peru visiting Machu Picchu, Mount Kilimanjaro and the Three Peaks. Keep an eye out for where it will be next year.

Other Opportunities and Roundup

In the year that the Hospice celebrated its 30th anniversary, there were plenty other bits of sponsorship to get involved in including selling tickets for the anniversary car auction and sponsoring a Milestone Bauble which was hung on the main tree at the Hospice along with the other sponsors.

The year as a whole has been great to take part in and has helped move our donation total passed the £5000 mark! And we cant wait to see what events we can be involved in this year.
