Here at Alpha, we contribute 10% of our profits to charitable and community based projects.

Below are a few of the charities we donate to and some information about the fantastic work they do.

Helen & Douglas House provides hospice care for children and young adults who suffer from life-shortening conditions.

The Werewolves of London offers a special needs ice hockey programme for children and adults who have Developmental Disabilities.

Alpha took part in the 2010 Irish Challenge through Challenge Adventure Charities. 50% of the sponsorship money went to Cancer Research and British Heart Foundation. The other 50% went to our chosen charity: the Marlow Opportunity Playgroup where the niece of one of our team members attended. She has a neurological condition which means she cannot walk or communicate.

Recently, the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service have been in touch. We went to visit the project and it was truly brilliant to see the great progress that was being made. 4M of the 5M budget has already been reached which is truly remarkable and so the vision is now turning into reality. Building works have commenced, foundations laid with the facility due to complete and be operational in Spring 2017.

Projects further afield

Brazil Happy Homes Project is long term initiative in Brazil (Campa Largo) working in the slums/favelas and providing safe housing for families and siblings who have been removed or abandoned from violent and troubled homes. Dave from Alpha went out with his son during Easter 2014 where they were involved with building, painting and preparing the ground for a play area for the homes.

Chiara and Ben (Dave's son) went out with a team in October to Moldova. They took out financial donations, crafts and activities, but over and above all, they took people, and the welcome and love they received from those children sorely reflected the lack of care & love they get at home.

They went to work with a charity that supports children from homes broken from abuse, drugs and alcohol, and some children who have been abandoned. They also organised events for the team of students who meet up at the centre once a week. They had four evenings together and organised a wide game, played silly games, and had a time of sharing afterwards. The language barrier was sometimes an issue, but they coped just fine! From start to finish the trip was a great success. The kids there loved it, the team (5 adults, 4 kids and 8 youth) also loved it, and yes, they already have plans to go back again next year! 

If you're interested, we'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have about the trip.
