Festival Transport for POC IOM Culture Fest

Newfield are very proud to be supporting POC IOM and the islands first ever Culture Festival.

When POC IOM approached us with the idea of free festival transport, Newfield were delighted to sponsor this part of the event. This allows families to have a low-cost fun day out, as POC have kindly allowed under 18’s to go free!

These events bring our community together and encourage people from all walks of life to engage in healthy conversation about their experiences, raising awareness about the issues that affect this diverse and valued community.

#NEWFIELD1000 April Challenge

Going into the Isle of Man Lockdown 3.0, we wanted to encourage our employees to get outside, get moving and raise money for our charity of the year. We decided to set staff the challenge of walking/running/cycling 1,000km to raise £1,000 for Victim Support. It wouldn’t be Newfield without some light competition so a leaderboard of the top 10 walkers/runners and cyclists was shared internally every week which became a hotly anticipated event.

We certainly underestimated how active our employees are and smashed the 1,000km goal in the first 10 days! We wanted to see how far we could push it so kept the competition going strong and finished April with 9,536.90km covered and £1,770 raised.

Over 45 of our employees contributed and we’re proud of every step or cycle completed.

A huge shoutout to our lead cyclist who completed 1,491.30km, reaching the goal single-handedly!

Charity of the Year 2021 – Victim Support

Victim Support is Newfield’s chosen charity of 2021. They play an incredibly important role on the Isle of Man (like many others) in providing valuable support to our residents.

In practice, the charity offers free and confidential help to victims and witnesses of crime, their family, and friends. This can be practical and emotional welfare support through Victim Support and/or support at court through the Witness Service. This support is available to adults, children, and young people affected by crime, death by road traffic accidents, unusual deaths, suicide, domestic and sexual violence, and abuse. Victim Support is independent from the Police, Courts and other Government departments and the crime can be historic and also does not have to have been reported to the Police.

We will be organising fundraising events with our employees through out this year to raise as much as we can for this essential charity!
