DEC Turkey-Syria Appeal

Supporting DEC Turkey-Syria Appeal

The recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria was devastating for many families. Once we heard, our team jumped at the opportunity to start a fundraiser and show our support for the DEC Turkey-Syria appeal. This appeal was able to represent all the charities in the area and ensured that help got to where it was needed the most.

Our team initially started with a goal of raising £500, but with the generosity of our staff and the help of our wider community, we managed to raise a staggering £1288! We are overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness shown by everyone who donated to our cause. Our service, office and sales teams have all shown great kindness and charity to those in greater need.

We believe that in times of crisis, it’s essential to come together and support one another. We are incredibly proud of our team for making such a significant impact on the lives of those affected by this disaster and in particular David Pullinger, our Head of Service, for leading the campaign here at Beaver Pest Control.

The money raised went directly to the DEC Turkey-Syria appeal, where it will be used to provide essential aid, including food, shelter, and medical assistance, to those who need it the most. We hope all those affected will find support to rebuild their lives.

We want to take this opportunity to extend our sincerest thanks to all of those who contributed to the appeal. Your contribution has made a significant difference in the lives of those affected by this disaster.

In times of crisis, it’s crucial to come together and support one another. We believe that with the help of our wider community, we can make a real difference in the world. If you missed the opportunity to donate to our fundraiser, our page is being kept live so please continue to donate, or consider other charities you can support. Together, we can make the world a better place.

Supporting Amnesty International

Our Beaver teams have always enjoyed the World Cup and the most recent one like the rest was met with excitement for our teams. We enjoyed the World Cup very much but recognise that processes, in particular leading up to the tournament, were not acceptable. Beaver Pest Control held a company sweepstakes but decided to donate 20% of the takings to Amnesty International. Four lucky staff shared out the rest for the money, the Winning team, the Runner up team, 3rd Place and the worst performing team all providing cash prizes, great fun and a good cause to support.

Charity Walk

Busy Beavers walking the talk for The British Heart Foundation

On the 12th May 2018 two of our Beavers set out to walk from Staines to Henley, a gruelling 50km.

It was a grey and rainy day but Rafal Brymer (Head of the Bird Division) and Marcin Stolarek (Bird team) marched through it. They completed the 50k walk in 9 hours and 55 minutes beating their target time of 10 hours by 5 minutes.

The trek took them through Windsor and Cookham before arriving in Henley and hugs the river Thames for much of the way. Although it’s quite a flat route it does include a couple of hills and the challenge to walk a mammoth 50kms (31 miles) can never be underestimated.

In total our busy Beavers walked 53.13 km, an average of 5.3 kms an hour. This added up to a massive 58084 steps for Rafal and 78000 for Marcin.

They raised £250 for the British Heart Foundation and we are very proud of them.

84km Charity WALK

Director Julia Pittman and her daughter Natasha Kulinski walked back to back Marathons through the Moroccan wilderness ending in the Sahara desert to raise money for SEED. We raised £2150! 

The Charity

I (Julia) met Gemma Oaten (Ex Emmerdale actress) at a networking event organised by the Wandsworth Chamber.

Gemma told us the story of how she navigated mental health services as a child and how her family struggled. As a result of their experience Gemma and her family set up SEED.

SEED is a small charity with big ambitions. They have created a toolkit for schools to help support and educate teaching staff.

The tool kit is currently to be used in Key Stage 3 & 4 and there are plans to develop this further into a tool kit for primary schools.

The tool kit comes with lesson plans, work sheets and videos. But of course all this takes money to develop. The money we raise will help this very important piece of work.

Why I wanted to do this?

I have always tried to do an annual charity event. I feel it’s important to give back where you can. As a family we used to donate our time to Rock Corps; Give, Get Given which was a brilliant initiative.

Recently though I have become disillusioned with large charities and had decided to stop. Personally I have to really believe in what I am doing to be able to ask people to part with their hard earned cash.

That changed when I met Gemma and listened to her story. As a mother and grandmother of children with mental health challenges I know first-hand how difficult life can be.  Sometimes life is really hard and having a focus on something other than work and mental health is really important.

Hence this walk !

Our work family at Beaver have been truly supportive of this endeavour and will be cheering us on from the Wandsworth Business Awards which coincidentally falls right in the middle of our walk. As a company Beaver values corporate social responsibility and encourages employees to give back to their communities.
