Fig sticks to the community donating office space to local charity

By Anita Jaynes on 9 November, 2017

Swindon’s new serviced office provider Fig Offices has generously donated office space at its 3 Newbridge Square Centre in the heart of Swindon, to children’s hospice, Jessie May Trust.

Jessie May is a children’s hospice at home, caring for local terminally ill children. Jessie May nurses provide vital respite care, emotional support, end of life care and bereavement support, alongside family events that help create treasured memories. 2017 marks 21 years of the hospice, which is currently the Mayor of Swindon’s charity of the year.

The specialist Jessie May nurses are set to move in to the brand new office space in Fig Offices this week. They will enjoy an office in one of the centre’s 50 individual spaces which are split over two newly refurbished floors in the eight-storey building formerly known as the Tri Centre 3. In all, Fig is providing 16,000 sq ft of modern serviced office space to the Swindon market.

Kristina Granat, Fig’s Swindon Centre Manager said: “When we opened for business this Autumn ,we wanted to do something tangible for a deserving local charity and found that the Jessie May Trust needed some central office space. We had heard of their reputation as a much-loved local children’s hospice at home and thought we could donate a new space for them to operate from, helping them to concentrate on their fundraising activities. We are all really delighted to welcome them as the first of many new occupiers at our Fig Swindon centre.”

Debbie Clark of the Jessie May Trust added: “This is a great move for us thanks to Mayor Maureen Penny who helped us to secure such amazing office space. We also cannot thank Kristina and her team enough for their help and support throughout. To be in the heart of Swindon makes a huge difference to us and the ability to really be part of the town’s business and professional community who also support us too.”

Fig Offices selected Swindon for its first Serviced Office Centre in a new business venture with FI Real Estate Management who manage 3 Newbridge Square, one of Swindon’s best-known office addresses.
