At 4Com, we are passionate about supporting and giving back to our local community in Dorset and the surrounding areas, especially those less fortunate than ourselves. We are proud of the kind and caring nature of our staff and the continued selflessness and dedication they put in to fundraising and carrying out charity work every year.
In 2014, with the regularity and success of 4Com charity events, the ‘4Com Foundation’ was established. Since the launch, the 4Com Foundation has raised £400,000 for over 50 local and national charities with larger events in addition to our monthly charity choice initiative.
The 4-25 and Some Hills Challenge
In September 2022, 4Com staff took on the 4-25 Challenge, a demanding 25-mile hike across the Purbeck Hills to raise money for The Isabel Baker Foundation’s Dry Suit Appeal.
Over 40 members of staff from 4Com took part with the group finishing in a little over 11 hours. Every pound donated was match-funded by the 4Com Foundation to achieve an incredible total of £33,303!
Christmas Charity Hampers
The 4Com Foundation supported the local community in December 2022 by donating 285 food hampers to the Trussell Trust’s Salisbury and Bournemouth food banks in addition to the Christchurch Angels, which is part of the Christchurch Community Partnership.
As per previous years, the 4Com Foundation purchased the food, boxes, and labels before packing them and delivering to The Trussell Trust and Christchurch Angels. 4Com’s generous staff volunteered during their lunch breaks to box up the 285 food hampers in a bid to do their part and fight hunger at Christmas.
The 4Paws Event
4Com staff and their furry friends all headed out on a lovely coastal walk in December 2021, to spread awareness and raise money for Margaret Green Animal Rescue. This event raised an amazing £1,200 for the animal rescue centre.
Margaret Green Animal Rescue is a local Dorset-based organisation that takes in animals that have become homeless due to a change of circumstance, neglect, mistreatment, or abandonment. They aim to rescue, care for, and rehome all their pets to give them the love and respect that they deserve.
