Giving back to the community as we grow

RVA Surveyors Community Hub

RVA Surveyors believe in giving back to the community as our business grows. If you’re a charity, a local group or even a sports team looking for assistance with your programme, then we would like to hear from you. Our specialist internal team may be able to offer help in reducing your costs or even with sponsoring an event that’s important to you. We are truly interested in hearing about different ventures in the community and seeing if we can be of assistance.

St Mary’s Church & Community Food Bank

St. Mary’s Church and Community Food Bank was the first Food Bank to be opened in Tameside.  Staffed entirely by volunteers, offering food parcels to families and individuals throughout Tameside who find themselves in crisis, through a referral system. We have pledged to make a series of regular donations of food and everyday essentials in the run up to Christmas, supporting the food bank in its mission to reach those in need.

St Mary’s church has said “The need for local support is always high in the run up to Christmas, and this will be particularly the case this year with the pandemic still affecting our daily lives. We are very grateful to RVA Surveyors for their contributions and look forward to working with them over the coming months to service the needs of our shared community.”

With dedicated drop-off points located at our offices, we have also committed to making monthly donations, working with St Mary’s Church to provide high demand items including long-life food, sanitary products and treats for families.

Stephan Hughes, Chief Executive of RVA Surveyors commented: “We are very proud to be supporting St Mary’s Church and Community Food Bank in its incredible efforts to support the community in Haughton Green. We employ local people who share in our passion to make a difference to those around us and with our teams’ involvement, we are determined to ensure that our charity initiative with St Mary’s Church helps bring local people out of food poverty.”

Are you a Charity, Village Hall or Sports Club? Are you receiving Charitable rate relief?

If not we can help. The Majority of our employees live in and around the Manchester Metropolitan area and it’s our mission to give back where we can. We have a long term commitment to our local community and want to be supportive now more than ever while everyone is navigating through the pandemic.

Charities, not-for-profit organisations and community amateur sports clubs can apply for charitable rate relief of up to 80% if a property is used for charitable purposes. In some cases the discount could be 100%, this is called discretionary relief. At no cost we will happily help point you in the right direction or give you the necessary advice to achieve the relief you are entitled to.

If this is relevant to you please send a message to enquiries@rvauk.com and let one of our team assist.
