COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

At Franks Portlock we are committed to supporting our local communities and the amazing charities within them, and our team have some exciting activities planned for the coming months.

On July 6 2019, a team of 21 Franks Portlock staff, friends and family will be taking on KAPOW!, a 5k inflatable obstacle course challenge with a superhero theme. We have also sponsored two of the obstacles, all on behalf of Hospice at Home West Cumbria, a charity that serves those in need of palliative care, as well as providing support for their family and carers.

We will also be hosting all of our monthly CSR meetings over the next 12-months at Grace House. Based in Sunderland, Grace House offers respite care for young people and children aged 5-17, who live with complex disabilities and Autism, as well as support for families such as free holistic therapies, counselling group support and family activities. In conjunction it offers rooms for hire such as a therapy room, counselling room, rest and relaxation room and a sensory room.

In addition, we are selling raffle tickets for Grace House and anyone who would like to purchase them can be input into a draw for a cash prize for up to £1,000, which takes place on Saturday July 6. We have also sponsored a gold tee at Grace Houses annual gold day at Slaley Hall on the June 14.

We will also continue to support the North Lakes Foodbank through volunteering and donations, and our support of West Cumbria Carers which aims to raise awareness and provide to support to carers in the region. We will be donating an iPad and digital camera as prizes for their fundraising raffle which will be held in June.

Alex Edminson, HR Administrator at Franks Portlock, said: “I am delighted that through our work we are able to support a wide range of charities and worthy causes. As a company which operates nationally, we continually endeavour to improve and impact the areas in which we work.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Grace House for allowing us to use their facilities. I would encourage other businesses to consider how their day-to-day activities can have a positive impact. For example, if you need to hire meeting spaces, Grace House offers rooms which can hold up to 24 people, have ceiling projectors, screens, Wi-Fi access and more, whilst also allowing you to support a good cause.”

We will be providing more support and participating in more community events throughout the year – so keep an eye out for more information. You can view more information on our CSR work and commitments here.

During a recent review by our Health and Safety consultant, it was noted that a Legionella Risk Assessment was necessary for our studio. We contacted Franks Portlock who undertook a full review of the premises and provided us with a greater understanding of the UK regulations and requirements. Sean Green supplied us with a detailed Legionella risk assessment and offered pragmatic advice and guidance on the procedures required to remain compliant, the whole process was seamless from start to finish.. Sean attention to detail and dedication was faultless throughout the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with both him and the team.

The de Ferrers Trust

Six months ago, we instructed Sean and the team at Franks Portlock for their services in Water Hygiene and we have been blown away by the service he has provided us. We have a number of different schools on board with him that range from full water hygiene monthly management, to RA's and Annual services. When tendering we found that Frank's Portlocks cost were similar to what we were already paying, however the level of detail that the contract covers far outweighs any previous contract we've ever had. The Monthly meetings have made a massive difference in ensuring that faults and risk items are dealt with promptly and appropriately. As the person who oversees compliance across our trust, I no longer have to worry about the water hygiene compliance in our schools that use Franks Portlock.
