How we add value

At B&CE we’re all about creating simple solutions that meet people’s needs, and make a better life for those in the local community. We aim to achieve this with our employee charity events, volunteering programmes and sponsorship.

Our charity work

Throughout the year we give our time and money to help local charity or community projects. We strive to have a positive impact in our local community and on society. Here are some of the things we’ve done:

Supporting our NHS

As a business deeply rooted in the Crawley community, during the Coronavirus pandemic in May 2020, we teamed up with Crawley Town FC and their catering partner Strong Flavours, to fund 4 weeks of meals for NHS key workers in our local hospitals.

It was a small way of us saying a massive thank you for their heroic and selfless efforts battling the coronavirus on the front line during such unprecedented and challenging times. We were delighted to get involved in this initiative – watch our teamwork in action:

Charity of the year

At the start of each financial year, B&CE employees select a charity that we want to sponsor for the next 12 months. We then work closely with that chosen charity and organise internal events such as cake sales, quiz nights and raffles to help raise money for them. Here’s who we’ve supported over the last few years:

Holbrook animal rescue

For 2019 B&CE’s chosen charity of the year is Holbrook animal rescue. It’s a family run, non-profit making organisation based in Horsham. We recently held a charity quiz where, on the night, 17 teams battled through a grueling quiz packed with questions spanning topics like history, food, popular culture and science. We raised a huge £682.85! We still have a lot fund raising plans for this year.

Community work

Volunteering

Each year, B&CE seek out local volunteering opportunities and form a volunteering programme to support the local community. Employees can take 2 days paid leave for volunteering within the local community.

So far we’ve supported:

  • The People’s Park
  • Golden Lion Children’s Trust
  • Be the change
  • Dementia Action Week

Sponsorship

Crawley Town FC

 


In June 2018, we announced The People’s Pension as the principle shirt sponsor for Crawley Town FC for the next three seasons. Crawley Town FC announced a new partnership in December 2018, for the naming rights to Broadfield Stadium with The People’s Pension.
The Stadium is now known as The People’s Pension stadium.
