Social Responsibility

For us, an important part of improving local businesses is improving the community around us. That’s why we endeavour to give back at every opportunity, support great charities, and volunteer our skills for fantastic causes. For many, giving of time and money is a private engagement with a cause and our team wish to keep much of it private, however:

What we do…


TBL is well known for supporting local events and regularly take on students from schools and colleges for placements and apprenticeships, which earned it a prestigious Gold Award from Southend Business and Community Charter (SBCC) in 2016. We continue to engage in this way by welcoming our newest apprentice in early September.

Charity work

Over recent years we have supported a number of local charities and organisations including the local food bank, Harp, Jeans for Genes, and most recently Southend Mencaps’ ‘The Music Man Project’.

This year they will be taking on the Foulness Bike ride, raising money for the Music Man Project.


TBL strengthens its commitment to the local community by supporting a range of causes and offering opportunities to young people, whilst supporting a wide range of local business with their tax and accountancy requirements.
