Giving back

Peldon Rose is supporting four charities throughout 2018 which are our neighbours The Wimbledon Guild, Pancreatic Cancer UK, Get Kids Going and we are also continuing our support for MIND, the mental health charity. To kick the fundraising off, four runners from Peldon Rose put on their running shoes and completed The London Marathon, raising over £7,500 between them for the four causes.

Given our focus is on creating workspaces that promote a sense of wellbeing, supporting Mind over the past three years has certainly been an apt choice and we are delighted to have raised over £15,000 for them.

We have also supported a range of other charities, including FARA, with 14 people completing Tough Mudder and we also held a Curry & Quiz Night supporting Red Nose Day.

   

Kingston University Broadening Horizons Programme

   

Nurturing the next generation

When it comes to workplace innovation, we’re always on the lookout for what’s new and next and are keen to support the next generation of workplace thinkers and makers.

As part of this, we have supported Kingston University for the past three years with their Broadening Horizons programme which offers students practical experience working on a project and gaining insight into the how SME companies operate. Peldon Rose offered support to the students along the way and at the end of the eight-week project the students presented their project findings and report and received feedback from our experts.

Following the success of these projects, we have implemented a number of initiatives which the students had researched and recommended and we are looking forward to supporting Kingston University again with the Broadening Horizons programme in 2019.
