Cookies for Cookie Day
We are very excited to be launching our first fundraising activity to help us achieve our goal of raising £1600 for the NSPCC and we will be are raising funds for the NSPCC and awareness for the EU Cookie Law by baking homemade cookies for local Brighton businesses.
If you are based in Brighton and would like to show your support, and treat your office to some sweet treats on a Friday any donations are appreciated and will be going to an amazing cause.
The cookies are available in delicious chocolate chip, oatmeal, and sugar varieties, and 6 cookies will be available for a recommended donation of £10 for 6 and 12 for a recommended donation of £15. What better way to comply with the cookie law than to get some chocolate in your mouth at the end of the week!
Cookies will be sold by half dozen or dozen with all the money raised going to towards the goal of £1600 for NSPCC by the end of 2012. Please dig deep and help us make a difference!
If you would like to place an order or more more information, please email Jamila MacLean Homburg.
Orders must be in no later than Monday 21st May by 5pm to give us plenty of time to bake up a storm! Payments can be made through our Just Giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/sitevisibilityjustgiving.

SiteVisibility and Sustainability
SiteVisibility recognises the need for sustainable development in business and continually aims to improve the social and environmental impacts of our activities to underpin a healthy, profitable and successful business.
This is not something that just comes from the top down and everyone in the company is given one day per annum to participate in either company or personal volunteering or charity activities and this year we would like to see this happen with everyone working towards assisting with something they are passionate about.
We are members of Business in the Community and Jason our Chief Executive is on the South East Leadership board.
We’ve also recently appointed an internal Sustainability Officer (that’s me!) who’s in charge of making sure we all do our parts to reduce our usage, as well as keep us up to date on any environmental developments that might make us consider redesigning our strategy.
We have recently updated our internal company sustainability policy and have set ourselves some challenges and targets this year that will ensure we increase our impact on the local community and reduce our energy consumption.
As a business, we strive to have a positive environmental and social impact on our local community and we currently work closely with 5 key partners; BITC, Sussex Wildlife Trust, University of Brighton, NSPCC and Scope.
The main areas we are dedicated to contributing to are:
Leadership – This involves us working with people in the community and educating and influencing them on the importance of sustainable business practice.
Environment – Ensuring we minimise the effect of our business on the environment and reduce our energy usage and waste.
Employee health and well being – We are committed to providing the best possible working conditions for our employees and have a number of staff benefits as well as an intern training program for all of our trainees to ensure they get the most out of the experience as possible
Community – Giving people opportunities to make the most of their talents so they can realise and achieve their potential”. We are dedicated to giving something back to the local community and work closely with a number of charities, small businesses and have also worked on mentoring and training programmes with community colleges.
