At Mortgage advice Southampton we believe in helping and supporting local clubs and charities. We believe that it is paramount for all companies to suppourt the local charities in the area they operate to improve the living environment for your team and for the community you serve.
Many local companies have the same beliefs as us and recently we tasked our team to research local charities that they feel are making a difference to residents across the whole of Southampton. One charity cropped up on mutiple ocasions and the was the countess Mountbatten hospice charity.
This charity raises funds for Countess Mountbatten House and here is a little info from their website that describes the work they do. “Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity was established to raise funds for Countess Mountbatten House, a special organisation where people with life limiting illnesses, both in our Hospice and our community, are cared for by a team that delivers ‘over and above’.
The Hospice serves a community in excess of 720,000 and our catchment spans 460 square miles. Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity raises approximately £1 million each year for Countess Mountbatten House to achieve this.”
They recently organized an India trek which has raised over £28,000 pound with the help of local individuals businesses and celebrity’s from across the county of Hampshire and beyond. Their website shows some incredibly generous donations from local business owners like Drive Personnel who have donated £3,830 to the cause. Drive Personal is a recruitment agency that is based in fair oak and specializes in finding HGV drivers jobs in Southampton. This is a fantastic donation and is where we aspire to be with efforts from our team over the next twelve months.
