2022 - 2023 Charity Support
Our chosen charity for 2022 and 2023 is Tree of Hope. Tree of Hope Children’s Charity helps children and young people with a disability or illness by supporting their families to raise the funds that they need to pay for specialist care that is not freely available through the UK healthcare system.
The Consortium Team will be taking on individual and team challenges throughout the year to help the charity, as will also look to help support some of Tree of Hope’s own events.
Lara Squires, Director said:
“We have chosen to support Tree of Hope this year because children are our future, and as most of us in the team are parents, children and the charities that support them are very special.”
We look forward to seeing how much we can donate to this worthwhile charity, so do check our social media channels to find out what we are up to!

In Spring 2023, Consortium partnered with Stuart Weekes at SW Honey Farms to sponsor one of their beehives. Through this sponsorship, we hope to contribute to the overall well-being of our local ecosystem by fostering a safe and nourishing habitat for bees. The beehive is established on Long Furlong Road, carefully chosen for its accessibility to diverse sources of nectar and pollen.
Lara Squires, Consortium’s Director said:
“We are thrilled to be partnering with SW Honey Farms as part of our ongoing efforts to give back to the community Consortium is surrounded by. By sponsoring a beehive we’re not only promoting biodiversity but the health of the South Downs.”
This sponsorship features in our wider work supporting local businesses and initiatives that have a positive impact on the community and environment around us.
Previous charities we have supported over the years
2019 - 2021 charity support
For 3 years we supported the hard-working and much-needed, Turning Tides. Turning Tides is a Sussex charity working to end local homelessness.
The Consortium Team undertook their own individual challenges to help the charity, and we supported some of Turning Tides’ own events. Consortium also provided Turning Tides pro bono marketing support.
Lara Squires, Director said,
“We have chosen Turning Tides to support because there is a growing need for more support within the county. As a small team, our individual fundraising capacity will never be really significant but by donating some time and our expertise we may be able to help Turning Tides make a difference.”
We have raised £993 towards our £1000 target which is a great achievement!
