Fullcircle has been committed to supporting charity since our formation in 2002. Over the years, the company has raised money for many organisations by holding events, attending auctions, visiting local support cases and helping those in need to discover a brighter future.
Having spent over 10 years championing charities, Managing Director Marc Eckley began to help and support several individuals directly. An example is the case of Iestyn Middle, from Penygraig, who had his Christmas presents stolen in December 2012 after battling against two brain tumours and meningitis. Fullcircle Facilities Management heard of Iestyn’s suffering and decided to give something back to him and his family during this difficult time. The Fullcircle team worked tirelessly to redecorate Iestyn’s bedroom, providing new carpets, furniture and painting a mural of his hero Batman on the wall. Seeing Iestyn’s delight at his new room and bringing some joy to his family at last made Mr. Eckley think more seriously about what the company could do for those in need.
As a result, the company has added a new string to its bow and set up The Fullcircle Foundation. Using the finances, labour force and experience that we have gained over the last 10 years, the team is now determined to serve more and more cases like Iestyn and hope that we can work ‘together for caring’. Having carried out extensive research into charities across England and Wales, the Foundation has chosen to work directly with Dreams and Wishes, a fantastic organisation that is dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of seriously ill children and their families. The Foundation’s first fundraising mission will be the massive feat that is a sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in October 2013 with former Paralympian John Harris, further details of which will follow shortly – watch this space! Mr. Eckley stated: ‘We hope that events and challenges such as these will help us in finding those who have abandoned hope and giving them faith that the future is bright. Working with a great charity like Dreams and Wishes will allow us to do so in the knowledge that our efforts won’t be wasted’.
