CapitalSpace business accommodation customers know that we believe strongly in supporting our local communities, so we are delighted to be able to lend our assistance to one of our customers who have decided to mark their fifth anniversary with five small acts of kindness.  It’s a thoughtful gesture – from a thoughtful company!

Thoughtful Web have been building websites to help grow brands since 2011, moving into Churchill Square in Kings Hill three years ago.  According to their own website: “Our name encapsulates everything that we hold dear: we really do care about the needs of others, value kindness and you'll often catch us deep in thought.’  With their fifth anniversary looming, they wanted these words to mean something, so they came up with the idea of making five small gestures throughout the year. 

The first act of kindness

Their first effort was inspired by a visit to Maidstone.  “We were struck by the number of homeless people living on the street; it was shocking to see so many young people, which was in sharp contrast to the stereotypical image we conjure up when thinking of the homeless,” explains founder Simon Leadbetter.  “We had screen-printed some Thoughtful T-shirts that we were planning to give away to clients, however we decided to divert these to the Maidstone Churches Winter Shelter project and use the T-shirts as wrapping paper for our care parcels.  We know homelessness isn’t a problem we can solve, however, we can support the organisations that already do so much for the homeless.”

The second act of kindness

Thoughtful Web’s first act in 2017 is to collect money for Porchlight , a charity who help vulnerable and isolated people in Kent to get support with their mental health, housing, education and employment: “With the help of the fantastic CapitalSpace team at Kings Hill, we will display an A1 board in reception, with the Porchlight logo created using the outlines of £1, 50p and 20p coins, which we will  cover in double-sided sticky tape so people can donate a coin by sticking it to the board. Although it’s a small donation we are asking people to make, we know raising £160 could have a big impact on the lives of the people Porchlight help.”

Whats next?

And what about the remaining three small acts of kindness?  “We are asking our clients and fellow CapitalSpace customers to give us their suggestions via our website -  we’ll pick the best causes and rise to the challenge of delivering an act of kindness that will make a difference to them and the people they help.”

We’re delighted to be able to help Thoughtful Web with their first project of 2017 and look forward to following their next three acts.
