As a business, we believe in sowing back into our community and are privileged to be associated with a number of local schools, churches, Bath City Football Club and two local charities: Business Against Poverty and Jamie’s Farm. We are also a member of The Bath % Club involving the donation of at least 1% of company profits to charity.
The Bath Percent Club encourages charitable giving by local businesses and has now enlisted over 180 companies and individuals committed to giving back to the local community. The Bath Percent Club enables local charities without large advertising budgets to present themselves and their needs directly to local businesses and individual members. Members take responsibility for distributing and managing their own funds.
Jamie’s Farm acts as a catalyst for change, enabling disadvantaged young people to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. They do this through a unique residential experience and rigorous follow-up programme, combining farming, family and therapy.
Jamie’s Farm hosts visits at three rural farms, and a city farm in Waterloo. Jamie’s Farm near Bath became the first permanent home for the charity back in 2009 and at Total Bathrooms we are proud to have both supported the charity since then and supplied the bathrooms for this first farm. Since then, they have opened two further farms near Hereford (January 2015) and Monmouth (January 2018). In April 2019, they opened a fourth farm, Jamie’s Farm Lewes, in East Sussex.
Business against Poverty is a Business Enterprise that drives: profitable, ethical and sustainable growth for the benefit of its members and society. Its funds drive the humanitarian work of the charity People against Poverty whose aims are:
- To feed the hungry, provide shelter, clothe and educate the poor, take care of the sick and bring communities together to help break the cycle of poverty;
- To form communities in the UK to engage with People against Poverty;
- To be a gateway directly enabling our communities here in the UK, to engage with our international communities bringing them both life changing experiences.
Business Against Poverty is an accredited membership community. Members who meet our Code of Ethics are authorised to carry the Business against Poverty accreditation kitemark. Total Bathrooms is proud to have been a supporter of Business Against Poverty and People Against Poverty since their creation.
