Something about Vervate supporting charities & community

We are a very social and caring lot, with a very practical approach.

As well as offering charity discounts, we work for free with a charity each year.  This year we are working with two charities:

Brighton & Hove Community Sponsorship group was formed late 2021.  It’s one of an increasing number of such groups around the country whereby communities come together to help a refugee family to resettle in their location.  Susi co-leads this group, which has so far managed to raise most of the funds necessary, gain Local Authority approval and is currently applying for approval from the Home Office.  

If you are interested at all in helping us with donations or time, please check out the website or contact us here.

Refugee Support Europe Logo

Refugee Support Europe has been our charity of the year since early 2017.  John Sloan and Brighton businessman Paul Hutchings founded Refugee Support in April 2016 to support the refugees in Greece and across Europe.  They now work specifically in Cyprus.

We produce their monthly newsletter,  please do sign up HERE.

Previously, we have also worked with a range of other amazing charities: 

To demonstrate Pedal People are a client

Working with Pedal People – a wonderful local charity whereby volunteer cycle pilots ride out together with elder care homes residents – so they can feel the wind in their hair.  We are really looking forward to providing them with a great set of imagery that really does them justice.

Held  a free workshop in conjunction with SEA PR for charities.  We trained people from 20 different local charities to take and edit great footage – both photographs and video – on their mobiles as well as how to use imagery to win media coverage.  Great fun.
