Basingstoke Consortium Charity Events 2015 - During our 25th anniversary year, Wote Street People are undertaking a series challenges, for charity. We have selected Basingstoke Consortium as our chosen charity and would welcome donations to support us in our fundraising.

M3 Job Club- The M3 Job Club was established by local business man Richard Thayer. It is free and open to those who are 'in job transition' or 'at risk of redundnacy' who 'want to work'. Wote St. dedicate one hour each week to the M3 Job Club, helping members develop their CV 's for the current job market.

Basing View - Wote Street People are part of the Basing View community. Basing View is becoming a business destination of choice by offering more investment in public space and infrastructure. More amenities, more connections and more live/work opportunities

HIOWAA - During summer 2017 we supported HIOWAA by taking part in a fundraising team building event. Requesting volunteers to take part in their trial events, we jumped at the opportunity; HIOWAA will be rolling their team building activities to businesses as a new way to raise vital funds. The team had a fun morning and found the activities benefited the team.

Basingstoke Schools and Colleges We regularly provide careers support in the form of talks and interview techniques for year 10+ students.
