This year’s chosen charity at TCi is the amazing Family Compass
A variety of events and challenges have been planned throughout the calendar, giving everyone a chance to get involved, from dress-down Fridays and sweepstakes to the annual Christmas raffle. This year, members of TCi’s Board of Directors have elected to embark on a variety of challenges to help raise funds and awareness.
- Chairman, Adrian Sealey and Managing Director, Alex Perkis climbed Kilimanjaro in June
- Project Directors, Callum Bowden and Chris Pyne are undertaking a 15km Tough Mudder
- Financial Director, Alex Slee is doing a skydive from 15,000ft
- Construction Director, Jim Capron will complete an extreme, 34km, coastal Scandinavian-style Swim-Run challenge
They hope to bring the fundraising total beyond £10,000 – check out how far they’ve got HERE

It doesn’t stop there…
As well as raising funds and awareness for the charity, TCi has been able to provide refurbishment services for the new Family Compass HQ in the former Barnstaple Railway Station building along with a donation of super-smart ECO360® carbon-zero, fully recyclable cardboard desks and other furniture items. The charity has also been able to make use of some redundant IT equipment including laptops and monitors, not only benefitting their visitors, but enabling direct re-use and recycling!
At Easter, TCi staff rallied round and donated a whopping 70 Easter eggs for distribution to children who would otherwise, sadly not receive one.
Family Compass helps children and families to improve their mental health and wellbeing before they reach crisis point.
Their support focuses on:
- Improving confidence and self-belief
- Building positive relationships with others
- Managing strong feelings effectively
They support children and families to develop the skills needed to build resilience and make sustainable change.
