Why we support charities

Imperial Polythene are proud to support not only local charities within the Berkshire area, but organisations across the UK. As each year passes charitable organisations struggle to stay afloat and often close due to the lack of support and donations. At Imperial Polythene we make a huge effort to support a varied group of charities covering all aspects of life. Currently we help with either donations and support or indeed our own bespoke polythene products to those charities needing them most.

As well as A child of Mine organisation we also support a wide range of charities from Food Banks, Animal Rescue, Mental Health, Homeless, Young footballers and beyond. This representation is pretty much of what life is all about and of course Imperial Polythene wants to give back.

During 2024 we shall be updating our blogs and story pages with links so that anybody interested can make donations to the charities directly through our site.

Hedgewood, is a special school for children with Autism and learning difficulties.

Based locally in Hayes, Imperial Polythene have been proud to support the amazing work which this school is able to provide to children with difficulty with communication and sensory processing.

We are delighted to be able to assist the school and staff to enhance the learning experience for pupils of the school.

Rainbow Trust Logo

Rainbow Trust

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity based in Leatherhead supports families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness. The charity pairs each family with an expert Family Support Worker, giving them practical and emotional support for the whole family.

We were delighted to help support families to enjoy a day out, an activity together or perhaps a meal for that much needed precious family time together.

Here are the Charities We Supported in 2023:

A Child of Mine Logo

A Child of Mine

What could be worse than the loss of a child. A child of mine is a charity set up to help bereaved parents through all aspects of recovery, including providing accurate, up to date practical information and guidance after the death of a child, as well as financial support. Being able to offer professional bereavement services to those who need it the most is an incredibly worthwhile charity supported wholeheartedly by Imperial Polythene.

Norse FC Logo

Norse FC (Based in North London)

A local football team is not just about football, it’s about developing young individuals. This organisation has been running since 1895 and offer all aspects of football training to the local community. From the age of 8 upwards Norse FC is home to more than 6 senior teams, 12 youth teams, and a women’s football team. Norse FC is also home to the St John’s Ambulance deaf FC team. This truly is a grass roots phenomenon to say the least. Imperial Polythene is proud to be working alongside such an amazing group of individuals, many of whom give their time for free several days a week.

Brinsley Animal Rescue Logo

Brinsley Animal Rescue

Brinsley Animal Rescue was founded by Jon and Bethan, who truly share a passion for animals. In 2007 after many years of volunteering they decided to buy a large 4-acre property in West Bridgford in Nottingham where rescued pets and wild animals would finally have a place to recover, and either be returned to the wild or rehoused.

This charity is run totally by volunteers with no paid staff. All funds are purely for the animal’s wellbeing and the running of the site. With over 300 animals needing bedding, food, treatment, and vet bills, this charity is truly a remarkable facility for all animals. Imperial Polythene can only commend Jon and Bethan for the sterling work carried out.


Slough Homeless Our Concern (SHOC)

The homeless situation across the UK is bleak to say the least. A small glimmer of hope exists in the Slough based homeless charity Slough Homeless Our Concern. The charity began in 1997 and have helped more than 1000 individuals. The charity is a day centre that offers care to the homeless in Slough and those at risk of becoming so.

This charity is the only one of its kind within the Slough area that offers the homeless both crisis care and ultimately the long-term transformational help towards independence. The charity has been recognised for its hard work by the Mayor of Slough and the Queens Award for voluntary services. Imperial Polythene also recognises the extreme need for this kind of work and stands alongside the amazing group of individuals giving hope to the homeless of Slough.

Slough Food Bank Logo

Slough Food Bank

The Slough Food Bank is based in the heart of Berkshire offering all manner of help to those who truly need it. With each passing day the issue of hunger gets worse brought on by spiralling costs, redundancy, or a household with low income and big bills to pay. Most families are making the hardest decision to either heat the home or feed the family. The Slough food bank offers help and hope in many ways.

The foodbank currently partners with 200 referral agencies identifying people in crisis and issuing them with a foodbank voucher. The charity doesn’t just offer food. The foodbank also offers toiletries, nappies, and top-up fuel. This truly worthwhile organisation is helping so many people now more than ever. Imperial Polythene will be partnering with the foodbank throughout 2023, firstly supplying all of the carrier bags to give food out but also with a donation.

Alzheimer’s Dementia Support Logo

Alzheimer’s Dementia Support (ADS)

The Alzheimer’s Dementia Support charity (ADS) is an organisation based in Maidenhead offering constructive practical guidance as well as wide range of services designed to help people in the local community whose lives are directly or indirectly affected by Dementia. The number of people diagnosed with Dementia or caring for someone with Dementia is growing rapidly and this charity believe that residents affected in the Slough, Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot and Langley areas will all benefit from the multiple services and events on offer. The issue of Dementia has touched many of our own employees at Imperial Polythene, so we have decided to partner with ADS in 2023 to provide help where possible.

Hope Logo

Hope for Hypothalamic Hamartomas

What could be worse than having a child suffering with a rare disorder and not knowing what to do, or how to get the proper diagnosis and advice. Imperial Polythene has chosen to work with the HH charity not only financially but to raise awareness through our website. The Hope for Hypothalamic Hamartomas organisation have a simple goal to create a single, credible source for information about the diagnosis, treatment, and support of individuals with HH.

Every family touched by this rare disorder has a unique and often heart-breaking story of how they attained a correct diagnosis. Obtaining a correct diagnosis can take months and even years and often involves incorrect diagnoses. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, many families struggle with choosing an appropriate course of treatment, if one is even available. Regardless of treatment, managing the daily lives of HH patients and dealing with the long term and frequently devastating effects of HH requires ongoing information and support. Imperial Polythene is proud to support the amazing work of the Hope for Hypothalamic Hamartomas organisation.
