Charity of the Year
Our Charity of the Year for 2017 is Children's Hospice South West. We are delighted to be raising money for Children's Hospice South West, who provide hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West.
They offer wide ranging care such as respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care.
They operate three hospices. Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall.
Simon East, Heidi Bateman, Victoria Brown, Katie Lane and Sue Richardson are all part of Meade King’s Charity Committee. The Charity Committee's role is to come up with all sorts of creative ideas and events to raise money for our chosen charities.
We've got big plans this year - we've already done Dragon Boat racing in September, run the Bristol 10km and the Monster Race along with our usual fundraising activities such as bake sales, sweepstakes and monthly dress down days.
Our Annual Charity Quiz in on 18 January 2018, which is always popular. If you'd like to come email Sue Richardson for a booking form.
Bristol Go Green Initiative
We signed up to the Go Green Initiative which was set up to coincide with Bristol being European Green Capital. This means that we can create a working environment that has a reduced impact on the environment where possible.

Investors in People
As recognised Investors in People, all staff are encouraged to participate in making a difference to the communities that we serve.
The Fraser committee arranges staff social events, from barbecues to fish and chip evenings. It’s a great way for staff across departments to get to know each other.
