Who we are?
The Chelton Community Heroes (CCH) are the Community Involvement Committee who run the voluntary strategic business activity addressing social and environmental causes important to our employees and the communities we live and serve in.
What do we do?
Organise bake sales, fun runs, STEM activities in local schools - anything which benefits our local community! We usually hold activities on a monthly basis with outdoor volunteering events in the summer time and fundraising events for the winter months.
A Twist on the Classic: Cake & Samosa Morning Success!
The Chelton Community Heroes host an annual Macmillan Cake and Samosa morning fundraising for people facing cancer and needing cancer care.
Thanks to the incredible generosity and match funding from Chelton, our recent fundraising endeavor proved to be a triumph, raising a grand total of £1576. These funds will be divided between two admirable causes: Macmillan and Thames Hospice.
Chelton's Festive Spirit Shines Bright for Ollie's Star
Chelton Community Heroes recently hosted Christmas Jumper Day, raising over £570 for Ollie's Star. The charity was set up by one of our employees and his wife in memory of their son, dedicated to researching rhabdomyosarcoma and other cancers affecting children.
Thanks to the generosity of participants and donors, we continue to honour Ollie's legacy and contribute to the fight against childhood cancer.
Chelton's Triumph for Mental Health: Succulent Sale, Rainy Football Victory, and a Heartfelt Contribution to MANUP?
Following our successful succulent sale for men's mental health charity MANUP?, Chelton hosted a spirited 11-a-side football match at Bisham Abbey. Despite challenging weather, the blues clinched victory with two late goals.
MANUP? is a charity which works to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around men’s mental health as well as providing resources for those that might be struggling.
The event raised £900 and combined with our Succulent Sale earlier in the year, we raised a total of over £1600 for ManUp?.
In 2023, the Chelton Community Heroes (CCH) allocated £1800 through their Employee Donation Scheme, designed to endorse and celebrate employees' charitable initiatives. The CCH contributed to various charitable events, including a 25km swim and a London-Brighton bike ride.
Why do Chelton encourage volunteering?
Volunteering is a fantastic way to get involved in fun activities whilst helping change lives.
For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. Whilst for others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
Volunteering, has been found to improve health and well-being, team skills, loyalty and productivity.
