On your marks, get set…go! Staff atADAVIRTUAL Business Support has raised £112.00 for Sport Relief!
The money raised will help to take on some of the biggest issues right here in the UK and around the world, from tackling homelessness to championing mental health.
On Tuesday 10th March, the staff from ADAVIRTUAL Business Support joined thousands of fundraisers across the nation in kick-starting their support for Sport Relief.
As a small local company based at Worth Corner Business Centre they were keen to get involved and raise funds. The staff decided to host a lunch break quiz and invite other companies to join them whilst dressed in their best sporty outfits. Cakes and entry to the sweepstake were also on sale to boost the funds raised.
Ada Obi, Managing Director of ADAVIRTUAL, says:
“We are a small business but we are always keen to expand our support for good causes. This is our first time supporting Sport Relief but last year we helped raise money for Children In Need and local charity Chailey Heritage Foundation. The plan is to continue supporting such great causes wherever we can”.
Speaking of their efforts, Sian Curtis-Golds, Business Development Executive said:
“It’s so exciting to be involved in this year’s Sport Relief campaign and a fantastic opportunity for companies in our building to get-together and raise money for such a brilliant cause. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who came along! It was great fun and knowing that we’ve made difference is a fantastic feeling.”
This year, Sport Relief is encouraging the nation to get their kit on to tackle issues such as child poverty, homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health stigma. Sport Relief week will culminate in an unmissable night of live TV from Salford on Friday 13th March on BBC One.
When asked what we do as a business, the answer can be hard to give. Not because it is complicated but because we cover a huge range of options and help in so many areas it is difficult to put succinctly.
We call ourselves a business support company rather than a virtual assistant for many reasons. Yes, we work remotely from your business in terms of location (our office is based in Crawley) but not in terms of service.
The business was started because we wanted to help support startups and small businesses to grow by offering support for the daily admin and operations that are essential for a business but were not necessarily money making tasks.
By giving back time we have seen our clients grow and thrive as well as our own team in order to meet the demand.
We pride ourselves on being a bit different from the norm and so, here are 3 reasons why we are more than a virtual assistant!
We Are a Team!
One the main reasons ADAVIRTUAL are a business support company rather than a VA is the fact that we are a team. As a client you will still have a dedicated assistant to support your business needs and to integrate with the existing team but if one of us has annual leave planned or is unwell, you have other members of the team to assist instead. Thus, giving you unbroken support which means less stress and worry for yourself. The team also has a range of experience and expertise so we can help with a huge variety of tasks.
Virtual Doesn’t Mean Impersonal
We know how hard it can be when running your own business and also how hard it is to relinquish some tasks to someone else. That is why we get to know you and your business so we can integrate ourselves and work to the absolute best for YOU.
We meet many of our clients in person and are the friendly extended arm of your business. Should you need to discuss ideas or processes that will help your business grow then we are here to help!
Every business and their needs are different so we make sure we know what is important for you and support you along the way. Therefore, if your needs change then we can adapt too. Flexibility is key when starting up and we understand this.
Although we handle a huge range of tasks including back-office administration, our expertise lies in the operational support for onboarding clients for Service as a Software (SaaS) businesses. The first in-app experience your customer has with your product sets the tone for your relationship, so we’ll work with you to deliver your implementation strategy and ensure that your customer onboarding process is successful.
Can Your Virtual Assistant Do That?
So, if you are considering outsourcing then just remember that your “virtual assistant” may be able to help you with many more things than you first realised!
ADAVIRTUAL Business Support Team raise over £50.00 for Children In Need 2019!
Employees at ADAVIRTUAL Business Support have successfully raised over £50.00 for BBC Children in Need after completing their Pudsey’s Big Quiz and cake sale to support the 2019 Appeal. The money raised will go on to help transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
This year BBC Children in Need have asked the nation to Get Together and fundraise to help make a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. From rambles to three-legged races, knit-a-thons to quizzes and once in a lifetime challenges to bake sales, thousands of people across the UK have Got Together to raise money for BBC Children in Need.
As a small business they were not sure how best to fundraise for the good cause but once they saw the Big Quiz online they were keen to host. The company is based at Worth Corner Business Centre and so ADAVIRTUAL invited other companies and offices to join them in the main meeting room on Tuesday 12th November 2019 over the lunch period.
Ada Obi, Managing Director of ADAVIRTUAL, says: “We are a small business that provides remote administration, operations and general virtual support for fast growing small businesses and start-ups who need to effectively manage their time, costs & business operations in order to evolve, scale & succeed. We decided that we also wanted to expand this support to charities and worthy causes. This is the first time we have supported Children In Need but we held a cake sale for Chailey Heritage Foundation earlier in the year and are keen to continue supporting such great causes”.
Speaking of their efforts, Sian Curtis-Golds, Business Development Executive said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who came along! It was great fun supporting BBC Children in Need and to know that we’ve raised over £50.00 when we are only a small business is a fantastic feeling.”
BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to put on events in support of the Appeal.
ADAVIRTUAL Business Support, a small business based in Pound Hill Crawley, held a fundraising event on Tuesday 13th August 2019 to help raise funds for Chailey Heritage Foundation. Chailey’s mission is to give disabled children and young people every opportunity to pursue their fullest potential.
The event was an indoor Big Chailey Picnic where ADAVIRTUAL Business Support invited other businesses within Worth Corner Business Centre to visit the main meeting room during lunchtime for some sweet treats and fun games. With help from supporters, ADAVIRTUAL Business Support raised £92.00. This was achieved through selling cakes, sweet treats and games such as “Guess How Many Sweets in a Jar”.

We decided that we also wanted to expand this support to charities and worthy causes. We met a member of the Chailey fundraising team during a networking event and thought the work they did was fantastic. We looked at the fundraising suggestions and saw the opportunity to host a Big Chailey Picnic. We have also pledged money to their Big Christmas Give and are keen to support them in other ways in the future”.
