Supporting the local community
DB Roberts are not only passionate about selling your property, but also about helping to raise money and awareness for good causes and charities across the region in which we operate.. Over the years DB Roberts have raised thousands of pounds for a variety of charities and good causes and we aim to continue doing so for many more! Take a look at some of our staff raising money at previous charity events.
Our charities 2015
While we support many charities and organisations throughout the year we choose one or two main charities each year. For 2015 we have chosen the Alzheimer's Society and some of our senior members of staff have also become Dementia Friends.
Dementia can be a result of Alzheimer's disease or a series of strokes and is progressive. Symptoms may include memory loss, difficulties when thinking, problem-solving or language.
Alzheimer's Society works to improve the quality of life for people affected by dementia and Dementia Friends help dementia patients through understanding and so being able to help as many people with dementia, especially in the early stages, want to lead as normal a life as possible.
Our Directors headed to Telford Shopping Centre, (the home of our flagship branch) in March to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. A wonderful charity who offer expert care, guidance and support for people with terminal illnesses and their families. If you would like to read more about Marie Curie or make a donation you can visit their website.
Red Nose Day 2015
Our branch staff took delight in adorning their faces with the latest design for red noses on Friday 13th March for Comic Relief. Comic Relief aim to free the World from poverty and since 1985 have raised over £1 billion to aid achieving this.
Christmas Jumper Fundraiser 2014
We decided to get in the festive spirit and wear our Christmas Jumpers to raise money for charity. One member of staff even modified their jumper with flashing lights and jingling bells! Money raised went to MacMillan Cancer Support.
"Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree"
DB Roberts have supported the Ironbridge Gorge museums for many years and this year sponsored a Christmas Tree to light up the Museum of the Gorge.
MacMillan Coffee Morning
Whenever coffee and a cake is involved we just can't say no - especially if it's raising money for a good cause! Even our Director Matt couldn't resist a slice of carrot and walnut cake. If you would like to host your own coffee morning this year, you can order your coffee kit online now on the Coffee Macmillan website.
Hilbrae Rescue Centre
We took some of our workers and young volunteers with us to Hilbrae Rescue Centre in Telford to present them with a cheque to help build a new kennel block and while we were there we also took some of their then current residents out for a walk in the sun. Hilbrae do a fantastic job of looking after and rehoming stray and abandoned dogs. Like any charity they are always in need of volunteers to take their dogs for a walk and rely on donations from the public. If you would like to make a donation or are looking to re-home a dog, please visit their website Hilbrae Rescue Centre.
Wellington Amateur Harriers Football Team
Football is the nation's favourite sport and DB Roberts are the proud sponsors of the Wellington Amateur Harriers Under 12's football team. We supplied the team and their coaches with jackets and hoodies. Club Secretary, Anna Paulsson Habegger said "The boys are delighted with the jackets. Even the parents love them and we are thinking of putting in another order! The team look really smart when they turn up at matches and they keep the boys warm during match breaks".
Paws For A Cause
We've been helping Paws For A Cause to raise money to put towards a new breast cancer scanner for the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford through Charity Auctions, sponsored dog walks and donations.
