Reside’s Commitment to Community: Annual Charity Donations Supporting Local Causes

As the year draws to a close, Reside is honoured to announce our annual tradition of giving back to the vibrant community in Bath that has welcomed and supported us throughout the year. Our commitment extends beyond property, to the people and causes that make Bath and its surrounding areas thrive.

This year, after careful consideration and heartfelt discussions, our team has chosen to support two remarkable local charities: Off The Record Bath & North East Somerset, and Bath City Farm. Both organisations encapsulate values close to our hearts, championing causes that enrich the lives of those in our community.

Off The Record is a beacon of support for the emotional wellbeing of young people. Their tireless efforts in providing free services — counseling, advocacy, youth participation, and more — have a profound impact on the lives of individuals aged 10-25. Through empowerment and guidance, they strive to ensure every young person feels confident and emotionally healthy.

Regarding this partnership, James Brown from Off The Record expressed heartfelt gratitude: “Thank you so much on behalf of all the staff, volunteers, and service users at OTR. This is a tremendous boost to our Young Futures appeal.”

Bath City Farm, with its commitment to fostering volunteering opportunities, informal education, and community engagement, embodies principles of healthy living and environmental stewardship. Alison Howell, Communication & Development Lead at Bath City Farm, shared, “This money will really make a difference to the Farm, to our animals, and to the children, young people, and adults that we support through our therapeutic programs.”

At Reside, our directors Toby Martin and Ben Bower emphasise the significance of supporting these causes. “We feel privileged to contribute to the betterment of our community,” says Toby. “Our team is proud to stand alongside these fantastic charities,” adds Ben.

This tradition of giving back is deeply ingrained in Reside’s ethos. We understand that thriving communities are built on collective efforts, and we are grateful for the opportunity to play a part.

As we conclude another year, Reside extends its heartfelt appreciation to all who have made this possible — our clients, partners, and the incredible community we proudly call home. Your support fuels our ability to give back, and for that, we are truly grateful.
