As you will no doubt know, right from the first day of operations at Tessell8, we committed to giving a minimum of 10% of our profit away, to change people’s lives.
We have had the immense privilege over the last eight years to support some amazing charities as part of achieving this goal.
After the events that overcame us last year and as we all continue to emerge from the global pandemic, it has given us the opportunity to review how we donate that 10%.
We wanted to share with you some exciting news.
In the past we have supported three different charities annually, changing them from year to year – in 2021 our focus has altered.
You may remember that in recent years we have provided extra funds to support the Oxford Gatehouse, a highly respected city charity that helps the homeless.
Witnessing first-hand how our support has had such a positive impact, going forward we have now decided to back the Gatehouse exclusively. In addition, we will take the funds earmarked for corporate giving and add these to the fund for the Gatehouse.
Over the coming weeks we will share more background and details on how we will try and make a small difference to the lives of the homeless in Oxford this Christmas.
