We hosted a Christmas party for care home residents with neurological conditions. To thanks us they made this artwork, which we proudly hang in our office.

“The six year partnership helped anchor us, empowering us to protect 100’s more vulnerable children, and win The Queen’s award for voluntary service.”

YMCA

Since March 2020, Bericote became involved with the YMCA Thames Gateway charity to help support those in need. We have donated weekly vouchers for food and household essentials, supported in the making and delivering of food hampers to local residents (making over 300 Christmas Happiness Hampers in 2020), funded home-school supplies for school children in the lockdown and funded multiple free community events.

In 2021 we organised and hosted a Christmas party for over 75 local children in Dartford. The free event included numerous activities from face painting to bauble decorating, with the Salvation Army band performing and the Bericote Elves handing out special gifts to all at the end.

Our relationship continues to grow as we offer our time and expertise to support the vital work they do in the community; whether that’s to help make and deliver care packages, volunteer at community events or help fit-out their new storage space.

  • Hope into Action

    Together with Readie Construction and Gestamp Tallent, we sponsored two homes through Hope into Action, Wolverhampton. We then volunteered to refurbish one of the homes, preparing it for refugees or those at risk of homelessness to have somewhere to help them start a new life.

  • The Salvation Army

    Bericote have been continuously supporting the Salvation Army since we first began. They have a base local to us, where they dedicate a lot of their resources and time to the homeless. We donate whenever we can and offer pro bono advice, both in-house and from our consultants.

  • Anchor

    We partnered with this not-for profit organisation to give people in elderly homes around London a very special Christmas party hosted at the British Museum. This included a full sit down meal, the Salvation Army choir and a personalised hamper to take home. We also dressed up as Christmas Elves to add to the magic.

  • Hospitality Action

    We asked Hospitality Action to join us in giving the elderly a Christmas to remember. They brought together those they knew who would be alone that Christmas, which gave them the opportunity to make new friends. For some, the hampers we gave would be the only present they received that year.

  • Castle Froma

    We organised a Christmas party in a home for those who suffer from a neurological conditions. Along with a festive meal, we had a magician, choir and a queen look alike to hand out our personalised presents. Unfortunately the home was quarantined due to an illness, but thankfully we managed to move the party to their sister home, and everyone still received their gifts.
