Wynne-Jones IP are delighted to announce Cheltenham Open Door as it’s nominated charity for 2023. The charity, which operates from two locations in Cheltenham, support vulnerable, disadvantaged and lonely people. Guests do not need a booking or referral to access services and they operate a “no questions asked” policy.
Charity Fundraising Manager Sarah White said she was grateful for the support “Thank you ever so much for picking Cheltenham Open Door as a charity to support throughout the year, I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are!”
Cheltenham Open Door was nominated following a company-wide vote that selected the charity from a shortlist that included Gloucester Food Bank and West Oxfordshire based APCAM. The shortlist was compiled by the Wynne-Jones IP Charity and Social Committee that reformed earlier this year. The Committee were highly active into 2019 when, as a result of the Covid19 pandemic, activity slowed and social opportunities were reduced. The team have now reformed and include two new specialist roles: The IP Inclusive Champion, whose job is to promote inclusion and diversity in the workplace, and the Environmental Advocate who will work toward reducing the companies CO2 footprint and promoting sustainability.
The Wynne-Jones IP Charity and Social Committee are:
Jackie Mullinger (IP Inclusive Champion)
Patrick Meulbrouck (Environmental Advocate)
Rachel von Hossle
Throughout the course of the year, the group will organise various events and fundraising activities that include pub quizzes, raffles, sponsored runs and other challenges. For more information about our charitable and social activities please contact one of the team members listed above.
