mosescameronwilliams, Cambridge based architects, were asked to support the Romsey Mill Charity Shop with a re-fit to their shop.
As part of the company’s CSR policy, employees are each allocated three days per year in company time to support charity activity within the local community. Two members of staff embarked on a one-day field trip to help Romsey Mill re-configure the shop layout. Using their professional skills and expertise employees were able to assist with a scheme which would enhance the shop and utilise the space more efficiently.
In all, the company gave 15 hours of pro bono time equating £2,250 of professional time - a huge financial saving for the charity had they commissioned the work from an architect.
“Practical help like this makes a big difference to a small charity like Romsey Mill, so we really do appreciate it. We hope that the shop will see a leap in sales and donations now it is looking so much smarter.” said Charity Green, Fundraiser – People and Partnership at Romsey Mill.
“We were delighted to spend time with Romsey Mill and hope that the re-fit benefits the charity. The time spent is part of our commitment to all staff to have three paid days a year to support charitable activity. This is a core part of our practice's values and helps build a healthy morale within the team.” Murdoch Cameron, Director of mosescameronwilliams architects.
