Helping Others

When you work with us you will know how passionate we are about our work. For us it’s about playing our part in a bigger story, your story.

Making a difference to the lives of others is important to us. It’s a value we hold close and live by.

The less others have, the bigger our impact. So our support of charity work is important to us.

This started around 30 years ago (well before the days of Trainsform) and it continues today.
Each year a percentage of our income (not profit) goes to our chosen causes. A heart-felt ‘thank you’ to all our clients, you are playing your part in a bigger story too.

In 2013/14 we gave to:

Local cause

‘Help Danny Hear’ is the campaign to help a little boy, Danny Pickard, who has CHARGE syndrome and is profoundly deaf.

His parents, Helen and Paul Pickard, are trying to raise £65,000 so that Danny can have the life-changing operation in Italy to allow him to hear for the first time. So far they have raised around a third of the target.

Regional cause
Magpas Helimedix the East Anglian Air Ambulance service that saves lives by it’s quick response times and highly trained medical staff. I only heard about Magpas a few years ago but I was blown away by the work they do.

International causes
Water Aid. Without water we die. In some parts of the world clean water coming out of a tap is a dream. I like the idea of helping dreams come true.

S.H.I.P. (Shewula Health Integration Project). Shewula is in the north east corner of Swaziland, Southern Africa. In a country where rainfall is irregular, everyday life is a struggle as water and food become scarce. The idea of being able to help some-one at this basic level is humbling. This small community is special. HIV/AIDS devastated it, taking the parents leaving the young children and few grand-parents. Dr. Jacquie Schaerer from Newmarket set up S.H.I.P in 2000.

One of the most rewarding times in the business is working out how much money we can give to these very worthy causes. It’s also one of the hardest because the more we give to one, the less we can give to others.
