Our contribution in the community is built on 2 distinct areas; supporting charities as a business and also encouraging and supporting our team to take time out to support the local area.
Here at TrueSwift, we consider our social commitments and contribution in the community to be a critical aspect of our business and has helped to create our internal culture. As an established business we believe that it is crucial to support the local area and give back to the community in which we have thrived as a business.
Below is just a handful of some of the support we have been fortunate enough to get involved with:
TrueSwift has proudly supported children’s charity TourAid since 2013.
By offering time and resources to key TourAid initiatives and projects, positive changes have affected disadvantaged children, many of whom are orphans, in places such as Kenya, Tanzania and Swaziland through the sport of rugby.
Our founder Kris was honoured to be recently invited to take a position on the TourAid Board of Trustees.
TrueSwift looks forward to supporting future TourAid initiatives including a planned project in 2021 aimed at underprivileged girls around the world.
Our founder Andrew has been involved with SERV initially in Herts and Beds and then Wessex since 2007. SERV volunteers provide completely free out-of-hours transport for blood, blood products and patient samples with recent years adding frozen breast milk to the rota.
The transportation is between the blood bank and regional hospitals with volunteers using their own transport (typically a motorbike) without any payment for fuel or time. The service has saved the NHS thousands of pounds enabling the hospitals to divert their scant resources where it is needed most.
As a trumpet player, Andrew also gives up his weekends to perform with the Charity Symphony Orchestra who donate their ticket sales to a variety of charities. The CSO has donated over £20,000 to local and national charities since 2010!
TrueSwift employees have participated on a number of occasions in the 54 mile London to Brighton cycle ride managing the infamous Ditchling Beacon! All the employees have raised at least £500 each for their efforts.
