WSM is very active in supporting third sector organisations in the local community. We have a policy of senior management engagement in not for profit organisations as well as making financial contributions to local charities and those connected to our people.

Each year, we take a vote and appoint a ‘chosen’ charity for which we undertake team events to raise funds. For 2019, we chose Merton Vision who were established to grant assistance to all blind and partially sighted persons ordinarily resident in the London Borough of Merton by visiting blind and partially sighted persons in their own homes, hospitals or elsewhere with a view to affording them comfort and encouragement and assistance in the solution of domestic and other problems, provide every other service and assistance necessary for the benefit, health and comfort of blind and partially sighted persons in relation to their visual impairment and any other impairment they may have.’

To keep up with our progress over the year, please keep following our website and our WSM Twitter page. Donations can be made on our company fundraising page.

We also regularly sponsor and support many local charities including:

Heather Bechman, STEM4

‘WSM is a corporate supporter of STEM4 and has been actively working with us over the past year. Their involvement has been hugely beneficial in a number of different ways. Apart from the loan of time from Kayley Hackshaw who has been extremely helpful in helping us on the finance side, social networking and introducing us to many business links, WSM have been instrumental in fund-raising for us in a major way by nominating us as their charity of the year. We are extremely appreciative of their investment in us which can only continue to help us deliver our services to the teenage population we work with together with their families and schools to enable improved mental health.’


Chrissie, Merton Arts Trail

‘When we set up the Merton Arts Trail in 2010, WSM was one of the first companies that we went to for sponsorship because of their high profile support of local arts organisations. Immediately we were given a pledge of funding, and Paul Windsor met with us and gave us important pointers as to how we might raise more sponsorship, and he put us in contact with others who could help us get our organisation off the ground.

 Their support has been steadfast ever since – in a variety of important areas, from advice about managing our organisation, to helping us find venues for events – even as far as giving us space to store our catalogues in the run-up to this year’s event – WSM has been there to help out, and offer support. Even when our energy levels were flagging last year, Paul made us understand the importance of our work, and encouraged us to continue it for the good of the community, both artistic and those who are touched by the arts in intangible ways.’
