Langham Hall Charity Initiatives 2023
Langham Hall is committed to giving back to the communities in which it operates. We champion our staff to be involved in a variety of activities to widen their life experiences and perspectives.
Our global offices have undertaken a wide range of charity and fundraising activities over the past six months, ranging from white collar boxing to career coaching in local schools.
Check out what our teams have been up to:
Across our Global Offices
This year, the Jersey office has partnered with two local charities, Jersey Hospice Care and Dementia Jersey. To raise well needed funds, they have taken part in a variety of initiatives in the last few months including raising money for Dementia Jersey by manning their stall in town and donating their monthly collections to both Dementia Jersey and Jersey Hospice Care.
The Guernsey office selected Guernsey Alzheimer’s Association as their chosen charity of the year and have since taken part in a variety of initiatives to support the charity with fundraising and volunteering. This included taking part in the annual Guernsey Alzheimers’ Golf Day with former professional rugby player Kyran Bracken. During early June staff took part in “The Saffery Rotary Walk,” which saw them go around the island in a 39-mile walk. The initiative raised money for 25 local charities including the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation, GSPCA and Les Bourgs Hospice.
For the first half of the year, the USA office partnered with the Association to Benefit Children (‘ABC’). ABC provides early childhood education and early intervention programs for children aged 0-5, providing a nurturing foundation to children from New York City’s most vulnerable families. The team collected hundreds of books which were presented to the charity during an engagement day with the students. The Langham Hall team took part in classroom activities and presentations.
The Luxembourg office has been focusing their efforts on humanitarian aid for the Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal. Through direct transfers, employees generously contributed to AHBAP and OXFAM. Langham Hall Luxembourg matched their donations with an equal contribution to further support employees’ commitments. In addition to monetary support, the team collected clothing and different essential items delivered to the Embassy of Turkey.
The UK office has this year renewed its partnership with Future Frontiers, an award-winning education charity that exists to ensure young people fulfil their potential at school and when transitioning to education, employment or training at age 16. The initiative saw young people attend a 4-week programme of face-to-face coaching delivered by a team of 10 volunteers from our London office. The office also matched employee contributions for the Turkey and Syria DEC Appeal as well as made donations to the employee’s quarterly chosen charities CALM, Shelter and Dog’s Trust.
We also encourage our staff across all jurisdictions to take on their own challenges and initiatives.
