Our Charitable Work
Each year we identify a “Stenprop Charity of the Year”. We give everyone the opportunity to nominate this charity and support the work of the chosen charity over the course of the year. Through a series of fundraising events we look to raise money and awareness of this charity.
In 2018 our nominated charity was Bokamosa Education Trust, which is focused on providing world-class education and mentoring to some of the most disadvantaged children in South Africa. Over the course of the year, we raised over £2,000 through a combination of fundraising activities including a bike ride and South Africa cricket world cup raffle draw. We also separately contributed £10,000 to fund school and boarding fees for a whole year for a schoolgirl called Mandy.
In 2019 our nominated charity was Demelza. Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for babies, children and teenagers with these terminal conditions such as cancer, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, brain injury and genetic conditions, sometimes so rare, they have no name. Demelza look after these children and their whole family – mums, dads, siblings, grandmas and granddads, so they can enjoy their time together as a family, for as long as they have.
We raised an incredible £19,000 for Demelza with our Source-2-Sea event, involving 31 hours of non-stop running. More recently, we donated £8,000 to support the UV Lamps project for their Sittingbourne and Eltham sites to prevent getting Legionella, alongside smaller donations through book sales and collection pots.
