Our Commitment

Xactium has an ongoing commitment to helping and supporting the communities we operate in, bettering our environment with best practise methods implemented in our workplace, and investing in our people. This year, Xactium has committed to sponsoring Special Olympics GB and host a range of fundraising events ahead of the games in 2017.

Andy Evans, Managing Director of Xactium says: “we are delighted that Xactium are supporting the Special Olympics because it enables many people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to enjoy lots of different sports. Our son has intellectual disabilities and we know first hand how important sport is in his life. The effort, enthusiasm and support from the community and our employees is wonderful to see and I’m happy to see the level of support Xactium has for such a wonderful and worthy cause.

We are a global business, but valuing the importance of making a difference to our own community and supporting equal opportunities have always been core values in our business. That’s why we are so keen to support the Special Olympics GB National Games;in our home City of Sheffield, to encourage the diversity, positivity and personal growth it will engender".

Martha's Cafe in Greenhill supports Xactium’s fundraising efforts

Xactium would like to thank Lyn Robinson, owner of Martha's cafe for supporting our fundraising towards the Special Olympics.

Throughout 2016, Martha's cafe's loyal regulars have kindly donated books to the cafe, where a low bookshelf next to the counter quietly displays the books with an honesty box for donations. As a result, Martha's cafe has raised a wonderful sum of £150.

As well as running a thriving cafe, Lyn supports her husband David to run DJR swim school in Woodhouse. Many Sheffield children have learnt to swim with them, but more impressively they have successfully taught many intellectually and physically disabled children to swim. Lyn is keen to support our fundraising efforts for the Special Olympics, especially as the National Summer Games will be taking place here in Sheffield in August 2017.

Fashion Show & Clothes Sale

Friday 28th October, 2016 saw Sheffield’s St Oswald’s Church turn into an evening of fashion and accessories by employees from Xactium and SOS Charity Fashion shows. Women from across South Yorkshire attended the show and clothes sale to raise funds for Special Olympics Great Britain and the National Summer Games, to be held in the company’s home City of Sheffield in 2017. 

The evening raised over £700 for Special Olympics Great Britain and was a great opportunity for friends and family to get together, enjoy the show with wine and nibbles, followed by a raffle with generous donations from many local companies.

The Great Xactium Bake Off

Being an organisation who loves all things cake - it was only true to the office bakers that we hold a Great Xactium Bake Off in aid of SOGB 2017!

Keen bakers from around the office got together and baked up a storm! With the creative Pina Colada cake by Karen in 1st place, layered marble cake by Victoria in 2nd place and a rich chocolate fudge cake coming in at 3rd place by Serina. This year keen cake enthusiasts Niel and Linda judged and ranked the cakes before the table was open to the Xactium employees, companies from our building and residents from the street.

All employees, building occupants and local residents were invited to contribute a charitable donation in exchange for a slice of their favourite cake raising a successful amount of funds for the office charity of the year helping us raise £132.45.

Fundraising Brings Music to Sri Lankan School

As a result of numerous fundraising activities including a Pampered Chef evening, Casual Fridays, Christmas Raffle, a Pool Tournament and many more, Xactium's donation has enabled the school to purchase musical instruments, costumes for band members and provide musical tuition.
 
The school, K/Doranegama Maha Vidyalaya, provides education for children and young adults from 5-18 years from deprived, rural areas with few resources available to them. Despite this, the school is thriving academically and has been recognised nationally for dance and the arts.
 
Ranga Medagoda, a Software Developer at Xactium visited the school in March 2014 and was invited to a special assembly at the school to present the instruments to the school.
