Actions speak louder than words.
This is why we provide more than just financial support to charities and the local community. We offer our time and expertise too.
Hamworthy Heating made a commitment to give every employee the opportunity to undertake a day of voluntary work during their normal working hours.
Volunteers are crucial to small organisations and charities and we hope to pass on the skills and knowledge we have as a long-standing British commercial boiler manufacturer to these organisations.
In 2015 we were delighted that our community programme won us a Dorset Business Award for 'Business Engagement with the Community'.
You can see some of the community projects and fundraising activities we have been involved in below.
Helping in the community of Poole
Inspiring young people
Young people are the future. It is important we give the next generation the skills and opportunities to succeed. We get involved with mentoring students from local schools as part of the Young Enterprise charity and Enterprise and Skills Challenge.
Supporting our charity of the year
In 2017, we raised £2,050 for our Charity of the Year Julia's House. This financed hospice sessions during the school holidays for nine school-age children.
In 2016, we raised over £1000 for our Charity of the Year Gully’s Place. The money was used to provide grieving families with memory boxes.
From 2013 to 2015 we supported Poole-based Forest Holme Hospice, which is dedicated to caring for patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. From providing boilers for their refurbishment to the Great Hamworthy Bakeoff, we donated more than £13,000 of money and equipment.
