Corporate Social Responsibility or Just Social Responsibility
The Supremes had it right…
…. ‘Cause baby there, Ain’t no mountain high enough, Ain’t no valley low enough, Ain’t no river wide enough, To keep me from getting to you..’.
and I must say that it does take a supreme and continued effort to commit to fundraising for a good cause on a long-term basis and to ‘keep getting’ to that new goal, but charities need long-term, driven support and Romax offers just that for Demelza.
In our support for charity as with our approach to business, we continue to strive for better results and improvements, investment in employee training, new technologies and equipment. Last year, Romax won the reward for the most ‘Outstanding SME Supporter’. This year we want to do more, complacency leads to failure.
Demelza provides an unparalleled service to families in Eltham and Kent. Romax decided to select this charity to support and employees benefit from the ‘feel good factor’ of helping a local charity.
Last year I swam the English Channel, taking 19 hrs and 13 mins for Demelza. This June I am leading a team of 10 from Romax and our sister design company Close to Water on the 3 peaks challenge – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon all completed in one straight 24 hour period! As I can’t get enough swimming – on the anniversary of my channel swim in September, I am swimming the 10km River Dart Race in Devon all for Demelza.
Romax has already donated £13k worth of raffle prizes to Demelza this year, and we continue to send employees on funded charity days.
Setting enviable and leading standards for others to follow is a Romax vision reflected in by employees. Sharing in the success of our business and providing excellent service and product ensures that we provide a long-term and secure offering to all of our stakeholders.
I believe very strongly that in this tough financial climate that although charity often does begin at home, we should not shut our eyes to other people in need. As a community we should all set goals to help others achieve theirs. Let’s all find a mountain and go climb it!
