White Lodge Centre
www.whitelodgecentre.co.uk is a fantastic local charity who support disabled children, young people and adults, families and carers in Surrey and the surrounding areas. This is achieved by providing high quality, innovative and individually planned services. Each year we run different festive-themed activities to support the great work they do.
British Heart Foundation
Each year BTCSoftware teams participate in raising funds for a local and a national charity of our choice. In 2019 our chosen national charity was the British Heart Foundation. BHF is the UK’s number one heart charity, and through 50 years of funding cutting edge research, they have made a big difference to people’s lives.
In the spirit of charity, our co-founders, Rob Ellis and Ian Katté, participated in various bike rides throughout 2017 to raise as much money and awareness for the charity as possible.
Woking Street Angels
One of the first tasks for new Street Angels Co-ordinator, Andrew Bates, was very enjoyable – taking delivery of supplies of hundreds of lollipops and flip flops donated by BTCSoftware. Woking Street Angels are trained volunteers who, for the past eight years, have walked the streets of Woking Town Centre every Friday and Saturday night, whatever the weather. They’re out from 10 pm till 4 am, working with the police, door staff, council staff and medical services to help night-time visitors have a pleasant and safe experience in the town.
Bake Sales and More!
The BTCSoftware team regularly hold bake sales and other charity activities in the office to support a variety of charities, for example, The Clubhouse Project and Save the Children. We are proud of our team’s efforts, both as individuals and as a collective, to give back to these charities. The bake sale and Christmas jumper day in December 2019 raised £117 for Save the Children. Ryan, one of our software development team members, ran a 5k in aid of The Clubhouse Project. With his running team, they raised £597.50. You can find out more about his run here.
