Keeping Good Company
As part of our commitment socially, we make our company facilities available for use by the local community. Some of the ways we do this include;
The Head Office Site at Wollaston, Northants, England (Private grounds)
Annually the grounds are used to host the Wellingborough Dog Welfare Show. Each year the funds raised at the event are matched to a maximum of £1k under the Company's matched funding scheme, as colleagues at Scott Bader are Trustees of the chairty and help to organise the event.
Pensioners' Christmas Tea Party
Each year circa 100 pensioners from Wollaston and surrounding villages attend this event. Entertainment is provided in the form of singing by Year 6 children from Wollaston Primary School and others, bingo and a Raffle. Proceeds from the Raffle are donated to the local branch of Age Concern UK. Scott Bader staff wait on tables to provide an enjoyable afternoon for the special elderly guests.
We hire the Commonwealth Centre out for functions such as weddings and parties. We also offer hire at a reduced rate for charitable events.
Private Swimming Pool
Swimming pool membership is available for people that live in Wollaston and we run activities such as children’s swimming lessons and specialised swim sessions for the over 50s. We also hire the pool to local schools and clubs.
Charity Property Known as 'Keep House', Wollaston
Since 2012 this property has been leased to a charity called SERVE (registered charity No.1043321) under a full repairing lease at a peppercorn rent of £1 per year. SERVE provides support and assistance to older people and adults with physical or sensory disabilities within the counties of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire in order to help older people retain their independence and to keep them at home for longer http://www.serve.org.uk/sensorygarden.html.
Scott Bader are encouraged to take part in a wide range of additional voluntary activities such as:
• helping at the Pensioner’s Christmas Tea Party
• helping at the fun fair Scott Bader sponsors, so that local children and young people with disabilities from specialised schools and organisations can enjoy it
