Supporting our Local Community & Good Causes

Part of the Community
Not just in it

Supporting our local community and good causes

Although we're a small business, we love being part of the community, and we want to contribute to causes and local groups. Which is why in 2020, we announced our first Charity of the Year and aim to raise funds for a charity chosen by our team.

How we're supporting the community

KAPOW!

What's more fun than an inflatable 5KM obstacle course? Running it dressed as a superhero for Hospice of the Valleys - of course!

Charity of the Year

As part of our 10 year anniversary celebrations, Team Roseblade nominated the Pernicious Anaemia Society as our first Charity of the Year.

From June 2020 to June 2021, the team will take part in a range of fundraising activities to help raise awareness for our chosen charity.

Walkathon

Starting September 1st 2020, Mathew, Siân and Beth will embark on a journey as part of our Charity of the Year fundraising.

Over the course of 6 weeks, each of them will take around 500,000 steps each which is the equivilent of 231 miles - walking from our office in Ebbw Vale, to our furthest UK based client in York.

You can track each of their progress below, which will be updated on a regular basis.
