Our local community is important to us. Working as a team alongside our sister company Blackett Walker Independent Financial Advisers, we want to make a difference and support those worthwhile causes making our community a better place. This year we have made the following commitment.
We support the Newcastle Falcons and its Community Foundation. Our involvement can take on many different guises. Our sister company Blackett Walker has a corporate box at the Falcons which we share. We fund the Christmas selection boxes which are handed out by the players to North East Children's Hospitals. We also donate prizes for the Community Foundation's fundraising events.
In 2013, alongside our sister company we raised over £4,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association.
Our chosen charity for 2014 was Meningitis NOW. We selected a charity commitee and our team organised fund-raising throughout the year. We raised >£4,500, all the monies raised went towards supporting those people who have suffered from Meningitis and investing in essential research into its cause and treatments.
Since 2015, rather than support one specific charity we organised ad-hoc fundraising events throughout the year and we have chosen to support Children NorthEast with their Christmas Giving Tree appeal annually.
Members of our team also take part in individual challenges to raise money for local and national charities, some of the pictures feature in our gallery.
If you would like to find out more about our fundraising activities and ways in which you can offer support then please get in touch.
We chose to partner with a local sports club, Medicals RFC. In a sponsorship deal worth £2,000 our financial support enabled the club to purchase new equipment, including match balls and new goal post protectors. We have also financed their training tops and we have provided new equipment.
BW Medical also sponsored the 'Best of Health' Awards and 'GP Practice of the Year' in 2015 and we continually support GP and Dental education events throughout England.
