February 2012 - The Stephen Hawking School
In keeping with our mission to help charities and the local community, we were proud to support The Stephen Hawking School in their first ever fundraising event, which took place on 28th February 2012.
Whoosh! ( also known as the Stephen Hawking School Trust ) is a registered charity, established in September 2000. The trust supports children from birth to age 11 in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets with severe, profound and/or multiple learning difficulties and their families, by developing and extending the range of opportunities in education and childcare. It maintains a close relationship with Stephen Hawking School, a primary school for children aged 2-11 years with profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex and severe medical needs. Most of the pupils have additional physical and/or sensory impairment.
The school is dedicated to the development and maintenance of high quality relationships with families and local community organisations, to ensure that the children attending the school become respected members of the local community.
The school believes in a high level of team work both in school, with parents, other schools and agencies. This ensures that the children`s enthusiasm for learning is a priority.
Stephen Hawking School’s first fund raising event on 28th February was held at the Lotus Floating Restaurant, Cross Harbour and was a great success.

December 2011 - Richard House - London's First Children's Hospice
As in previous year's, we decided not to send out cards which tend only to end up in landfill sites. Instead we donated money to the Richard House Children's Hospice, a local, very-deserving charity.
Richard House Children's Hospice, in Newham, east London, provides care and support for life-limited children and children with complex healthcare conditions and their families from across east and north east London. They are accompanied during the child or young person’s journey, creating positive experiences along the way that become good memories for the future.

Sunday, 18th July saw the 11th annual bike ride from Victoria Park, Tower Hamlets, East London to Priory Park, Southend.
Steve Dilworth, our Managing Director, cycled the 59 miles, through East London and South Essex in just 5 hours, raising money for the British Heart Foundation
June 2010 - Helping to raise money for Cancer Research UK
Well done to Kim, our Purchase Ledger Administrator, who completed the Race for Life 2010 at Gloucester Park, Basildon, Essex on 6th June.
The park became a sea of pink when thousands of women took part in the Race for Life and raised £481,000 for Cancer Research UK.
Kim jogged the 5k race and received a well-earned medal at the finish.
January 2010 - Toys valued at over £38K delivered to underprivileged children
We were proud to be asked to provide assistance at the Toy Fair which took place in January 2010 at Olympia.
Quadtronix supplied the vehicles and manpower to help load and unload and set up the stand. They then took part in networking among exhibitors to raise awareness of the work of Barnardos and invite them to donate their toys at the end of the fair.
On the final day, Quadtronix staff took part in the all-important trolley dash to collect the generous donations from exhibitors.
After the event, the toys were bagged, boxed, loaded into the vans and delivered back to the Barnardos' Divisional Office ready for distribution to the children's homes.
June 2009 - 245 shoe boxes filled with gifts for the needy children of Uganda
Quadtronix came to the rescue when one of their clients, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School in Crawley needed help with their Smile International Shoebox Appeal.
The children had filled 245 shoe boxes with items such as toiletries, writing materials, clothing, sweets, books, toys and games. They had wrapped and decorated the shoeboxes but had no way of transporting them to the collection point.
Quadtronix staff arrived at the school with a van and large cartons, packed the shoeboxes into the cartons, transported them to Orpington in Kent and unpacked all the cartons ready for transportation to the Smile International Distribution Centre in Uganda.
A shoebox full of gifts means such a lot to the children and families - not only the presents inside but the love that leaps out of the box, maybe unspoken but nonetheless heard.
In many instances this will be the only present the child has ever been given and they are greatly treasured, even the box and wrappers.
Every contribution makes for another happy child.
January 2009 - Disadvantaged Children Benefit From Toys Valued At £28k
We were asked by Barnardos to provide assistance at the 2009 Toy Fair. We supplied the transport and staff took part in a trolley dash, collecting toys for the children's homes.
