WMS, The Social Value Champions!

Scoped by Michael and Anthea to look at social value and local causes you don't have to look too much further than the Harbour at Bideford.

The work these people do is truly inspiring and to be allowed to make them a contribution on behalf of our business - that is so obviously well received is fantastic!

It has obviously made a difference...

Thank you for the letter Sarah!

Help for the homeless

Received by wms on 31/01/24

"Good Morning

Steve, your incredibly generous gesture is touching, and we are truly grateful.

To put it in context, £200 translates to 100 BillyChips, which means they can provide an equivalent number of meals to support the homeless community's survival. While to some, £200 might be a simple meal out with a partner, to this cause, it represents 100 meals and a day that someone on our streets goes without hunger.

It's perhaps even more impactful than you initially realised. 

Very much appreciated
Best Regards
Dan Macey

Social values are our values at WMS!

Thank you to our client Chris for dropping us a note of thanks this morning following successful completion of his charity walk in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

“We just wanted to reach out to say a massive thank you for your incredibly generous contribution for our charity walk. The route between Bristol and Bath was full of amazing street art and relics from its days as a functioning railway so while there were definitely a few blisters and achy legs at the end it was worth it. We’re very proud to say that we raised £2,125.00 for Great Ormond Street Hospital which wouldn’t have been possible without your help so thank you.

Mark, Richard and Chris
