We received such a warm reception from the amazing team, and we love knowing that we have helped to make Christmas even more magical for those who need it most.

    RAISING MONEY TO SUPPORT PAPYRUS PREVENTION OF YOUNG SUICIDE On 15th December 2022, we took part in a 'Wear Purple to Work Day' in support of PAPYRUS (Prevention of Young Suicide). PAPYRUS exists to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives, by shattering the stigma surrounding suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to emotional distress. Every member of staff fully embraced the spirit of the event and did the company proud, as you can see from the images below: We set up a JustGiving page in aid of the charity, and it was so well received that we extended it by a further month, into January 2023. We set a goal as a company of £1,000, and ended up raising a whopping £1,660! We have been blown away by the reception and response, and would like to sincerely thank every single person who helped us to not only reach, but smash our goal... Are you, or is a young person you know, not coping with life? For confidential suicide prevention advice, please visit:


    BIRMINGHAM SUSTAINABILITY FORUM & BEIC TOUR In February, we attended the Sustainability Forum at the Millennium Point Birmingham, hosted by Hill & Smith PLC. On day one, we covered many ESG topics along with strategies for sustainable practices within asset HQ. We also took part in some fantastic brainstorming sessions with other businesses within the group. It was great to see what each company has already put in place in terms of sustainability, as well as future plans for continued improvement. On day two, we went on an informative tour of the Birmingham Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC) & Tyseley Energy Park, and came away with a wealth of knowledge and ideas that we’re looking forward to implementing.
