Spelthorne Borough host the annual Spelthorne Means Business Awards to showcase all the local businesses and award them recognition for their work in the community. We were lucky enough to be finalists for the categories of Best Business in Sunbury and Halliford Village for which we received 2nd runner up and of course the Best Corporate Social Responsibility category.
At Acacia Homecare, although we are a small business we understand we also have a responsibility to the local community and since we opened our doors in 2012 we have been donating an amount of money per hour of care provided to different charities. The Thames Hospice has been our long standing recipient and alongside them we have also raised donations for Contact the Elderly and Mind. Our other current recipient is The Orchard Dementia Centre based in Chertsey – a day care centre for people living with dementia.
We have donated in the region of £20,000 and in addition to this also raised money through bake sales and organized collections for a local food bank.
We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 2022 and to be recognized for the work we do is an amazing achievement. We are proud to be supporters of our customers, staff and the wider community.
