Charity Work

With so many worthwhile causes to support, choosing a single charity to support can be a difficult decision. Nigel, myself and many of our colleagues have all had very personal reasons to support a particular charity. Well, we have to start somewhere, so in 2019 we have decided to support one local and one national charity.

During the course of the year the besley & copp team will be holding various events  and volunteering to help raise funds for these two extremely worthwhile causes. From bowling to half marathons and much more, we hope that we can raise well needed funds for our charity partners.

Below you will find an overview of both charities and a link to their respective websites. We will keep our ‘totals’ ticking over and have also added a link to a secure Just Giving page for each of them should you wish to donate.

We are proud to be involved with both of our charity partners and hope that you can help us raise well needed funds in 2019.

ELF’s vision is that every family affected by a blood cancer or blood disorder across the South West receives compassionate, tailored support.

Dealing with a blood cancer or disorder is life changing and scary. Treatment often requires lengthy procedures meaning days, weeks or months at a time in hospital and possibly months or years of follow up.  ELF lightens the load supporting families affected by blood disorders and cancers across the South West.

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, affecting more than 300,000 people in the UK.

Yet it is largely a hidden disease, and one that causes stigma, fear and isolation – it’s thought that many people with the condition go undiagnosed and suffer in silence. It doesn’t have to be like this.

Zita’s SWIM Triathlon

Our account manager Zita will be tackling a Triathlon for ELF at Torbay on the 15th September 2019

My condition forced me to cancel this week’s charity swim, but my mind hasn’t rested since… I am not willing to give up. I will be even braver with my new challenge, not just SWIM, but CYCLE and RUN. I have booked myself to do my first ever Triathlon in Torbay this September, however I have to allow myself a little recovery period for now (please bear with me for further update), training should start soon…

To show your support please donate and wish me good luck 🙂

Walk It Plymouth

The besley & copp team is taking part in the WALK IT Plymouth fundraising event in aid of Crohn’s & Colitis, on Sunday 13tJuly

Crohn’s & Colitis affects more than 300,000 people in the UK and this growing rapidly as a new person is diagnosed every 30 minutes. These are lifelong conditions which can cause incredible amount of distress and suffering. This charity support was a huge lifeline to Joe who has been diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2015, the specialist IBD nurses and the community of other people suffering’s support helped him to learn to live with the disease. Joe is a family member of the besley & copp team, but we don’t have to look far to find other people affected around us.

Crohn’s & Colitis helps & support people currently living with the diseases. The charity pioneer research run expert helplines & fund specialist IBD nurses all of which drastically improve the lives of people living with Crohn’s & Colitis in the UK.

None of this would be possible without donations. Please help as little or as much as you can to raise awareness of this cause and help the besley & copp team achieve their target.

We believe every family with a seriously ill child in hospital should be able to stay together, just minutes from their child’s bed during their treatment.

The Sick Children’s Trust believes keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children. We provide free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, to families with sick children in hospital in the UK.
