Nominate your good cause at the Victoria Plum Community Foundation

Posted by Adam Chard in Latest News | 9 months ago 3 min read

Do you know of a deserving community project that could do with new bathroom, toilet or shower facilities? If so, why not tell us all about it? We may be able to help.

Let’s face it, times are tough. So, working with Helen Skelton, we want to lend a helping hand. With our new initiative, the Victoria Plum Community Foundation, we’re on the lookout for those unsung heroes who deserve some extra support.

Maybe you know of a youth centre that’s looking old and tired, a well-loved sports pavilion that’s past its prime or even a pet rescue centre that’s a bit rough around the edges? Helen, and our team here at Victoria Plum, would love to hear about them. Maybe there’s something we can help with?

Helen and our other judges will pick what they feel to be the most deserving cause and work with them to improve their facilities. In all cases, we’ll endeavour to keep environmental impact to a minimum by utilising unused returned items, which we’d normally have to repackage.

Introducing Helen Skelton

TV and radio presenter Helen Skelton is best known for popular BBC TV programmes like Blue Peter and Countryfile, not to mention her recent exploits on Strictly Come Dancing. And now, we’re delighted to welcome Helen to the Victoria Plum team. As part of her role, Helen will be involved in selecting our Victoria Plum Community Stars, along with other exciting new projects.

Helen was delighted to be working with us, saying: “The Victoria Plum Community Foundation is a fabulous initiative. I can’t wait to get started, helping deserving community projects.”

Here’s one we did earlier…

Quite recently, we were approached by Bringing Hope to People with Cancer, an independent charity in Northern Ireland. This was set up by a group of people who felt that more should be offered to patients and families affected by cancer.

Bringing Hope to People with Cancer run a 3 bedroom respite home, Hopefield House, in the beautiful coastal town of Portrush, offering patients, and up to 5 of their family or friends, a place to relax and spend time in. Situated just 3 minutes from the beach, this self-catering property is available all year round and has been a haven for guests since 2021.

The bathroom facilities within this wonderful facility were outdated and in genuine need of an upgrade. Working with our design team, we were able to quickly identify their needs, turning a tired old bathroom into a stylish new shower room, complete with easy-access walk in enclosure.

Bringing Hope to People with Cancer, and similar requests we receive from time to time, inspired us to launch the Victoria Plum Community Foundation, so we can help other great causes just like this.

Patrick Burton, Fundraising Manager at Bringing Hope to People with Cancer said, “Thank you once again for making this all happen. This is going to be game changing for people living with cancer and their families”.

While we’re well-known for our bathrooms, we’re doing plenty of work behind the scenes to build a fairer, greener and more socially-responsible company. Find out more about the initiatives we already have in place.
