Charity and Fundraising
After being founded in 1998, The Window Film Company have always had headquarters in Buckinghamshire. Now with additional premises in Birmingham and London, the Company has continued to grow but has always remained committed to supporting the local area.
One of the tangible ways in which The Window Film Company has chosen to play a part in the local community is via involvement with a range of charities.
The Chilterns Dog Rescue Society
The Window Film Company is proud to be a sponsor of this fantastic charity. The Society specialise in rehoming dogs, taking care to match would be owners with a suitable pet. Fully reliant on donations and volunteers, the Society has found homes for over 18,000 lost or unwanted dogs since being founded in 1963. If you would like to help the Society in any way, or are in a position to offer a home to a dog in need, please visit www.chilternsdogrescue.org.uk or call 01296 623885 for all the necessary information.
The Hospice of St Francis
The Hospice of St Francis was founded in 1979 with the purpose of providing palliative care to patients and families living with a terminal illness in the local area. As well as providing care in the Hospice itself, nurses now support 350 patients a year in their homes, with a supportive care team providing additional help via visits and phone calls. The Hospice has yearly running costs of £3.7million, 80% of which comes from donations and fundraising.

Chesham United Football Club
The home of Chesham United is just a short stroll from The Window Film Company’s headquarters and with a number of football fans working for the company it was decided that we should support “The Generals” if we could. Therefore, when Chesham United launched the corporate patron scheme, The Window Film Company were happy to sign up. As well as supporting the scheme, colleagues have also been supporting the team, heading to a number of games to cheer them on. Good luck to all involved at the club for the season! www.cheshamunited.co.uk
Fundraising and Events
As well as continued support for a number of charities, staff from The Window Film Company regularly take part in fundraising events. All staff take part in the annual “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” event, raising money for Macmillan cancer research by baking and then selling a range of delicious cakes whilst a number of colleagues have also taken part in sponsored events including the “Rat Race” and “Mud Pack Challenge” to raise funds for local charities.
