Bespoke has had a close relationship with Mission Direct for a number of years; Neil was a trustee until 2017 and a number of members of staff have been on trips, sponsored by the firm, to countries including Brazil, Uganda and Malawi.
The firm financially supports Mission Direct, giving approximately 10% of the profits annually.
“Mission Direct enables everyday people to make a practical and lasting difference to some of the world’s most vulnerable people. We do this by making long-term commitments to our carefully-chosen partners in-country and equipping volunteers to join us for a two-week overseas mission trip to build homes, schools/classrooms, hospitals and rescue centres etc.“
YMCA’s Sleep Easy event
In March 2017 members of the team slept rough as part of the Cheltenham YMCA’s annual Sleep Easy event, raising funds and awareness for their work with the homeless in Cheltenham and Gloucester. They raised £530 for their pains, of which there were several the morning after.
