When Millennium Point heard about LoveBrum’s volunteering opportunities, they were eager to get involved. Earlier this month a few members of the Millennium Point team joined Moor Pool Heritage Trust to help tend to the green spaces. Once overgrown, the space’s pathways are visible once more for all to enjoy.

Who are LoveBrum?

LoveBrum is a registered charity that supports hidden gem projects across Birmingham that are often volunteer led and that deliver real change, with outcomes that can be seen, measured, enjoyed, and loved.

They support the ‘hard-to-reach’ projects, those causes that do not receive the platform or funding that they probably deserve. LoveBrum aim to support over 30 projects per year, and to reach out to all corners of the city to remind people how great Birmingham is. Every penny raised from individual memberships and fundraising stays in Birmingham and goes straight to the chosen causes.

LoveBrum have funded almost 200 local, hard to reach causes, ran 11 successful fundraising events raising over £200,000 to fund Birmingham projects. Since beginning LoveBrum now have over 1,000 members who are passionate about Birmingham.

Who are Moor Pool Heritage Trust?

The Moor Pool Heritage Trust is a charity born out of the Moor Pool Residents Association in 2011, formed specifically to acquire the community facilities for the benefit of the local and wider community. Following this success, the Trust now strives to protect and preserve Moor Pool for the benefit of future generations, but also to ensure it raises awareness of its importance to the wider public.

We caught up with one volunteer, Vanessa, Head of PLD at Millennium Point to find out how the day went

As a charity we are keen to help and support other local charities and we were quick to respond when LoveBrum asked if anyone would like to volunteer to help Moor Pool Heritage Trust, based in Harborne who were looking for a team to help tend to their green spaces as they had become rather overgrown! This was a fantastic opportunity to give something back to our local community and do something to help Moor Pool residents and schools.

Volunteer

The day was amazing from start to finish – the team at Moor Pool looked after us like we were family, the sun was shining and after a quick tour around we were soon chopping down a massively overgrown orchard area used by local schools, weeding outside the community hall, and clearing pathways. The results were amazing and rewarding as the outcome of our work was quickly visible. We may have picked up a few stings from the very tall stinging nettles and scratches from brambles, but the team worked seamlessly together to get the work done. It was quickly apparent how easy the work seemed to be as we were truly working as a team.  The day is one that we would like to repeat, and I think each one of us took away a secret wish to move one day to Moor Pool estate to live. It is only a short distance from the city centre but is has a rich history and is a real hidden gem to visit’.

Volunteer

Why did Millennium Point volunteer?

Millennium Point recently became a patron for LoveBrum who offered us the opportunity to volunteer. As a community driven organisation, we are eager to support activities that can benefit the city and the region. By teaming up, we can make a better future for all.

This isn’t the only way we try to help; we are a strong supporter of STEM education and provide funds for grants, projects, and scholarships. You can keep up to date with all our latest news on the Trust here.

Profits from our commercial activity are invested by the Millennium Point Charitable Trust into projects, events and initiatives which support the growth of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and education in the West Midlands. 

Our CEO Abbie Vlahakis and members of the Millennium Point Charitable Trust were invited to King Solomon International Business School to unveil a plaque commemorating our support for their eco-friendly STEM garden.

The “Breaking The Barriers To Stem” project is a great example of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education projects we fund in the West Midlands region. It was great to catch up with staff and pupils at King Solomon, seeing the positive impact the project has had.

(Pupils from King Solomon International Business School holding the plaque, with Abbie Vlahakis, Millennium Point CEO and Jean McLeod, Head of PSP.)

Who’s running the project?
The project is managed by a parent’s voluntary organisation in partnership with King Solomon International Business School – Birmingham’s first all-through (4-19) Christian free school, which specialises in international business and entrepreneurship. The Parent School Partnership (PSP) was established in 2015 by parents of pupils who attend the school. To this end, PSP activities have been by donation of time, gifts and resources from willing parents and community partners – and now Millennium Point.

What’s it all about?
An inner-city school in Birmingham with a high proportion of BAME (Black, Asian and Ethnic Minorities) pupils, its ambition at the start of the project, was to ‘break barriers’ and increase STEM engagement across the entire pupil population, whatever their gender or ethnicity, through a series of onsite activities, workshops, clubs, as well as STEM-related off-site trips. For a lot of children at the school, this will be their only chance to experience this kind of specialist learning in addition to the national curriculum and the aim is for them to be immersed into the world of STEM; give them opportunities that they otherwise would not have to boost STEM participation and be excited about the possibilities of careers in STEM.

The PSP and school has identified gaps in the children’s exposure to STEM learning and wants to reach individuals from urban, challenged or hard to reach backgrounds by providing all of this free of charge to prevent barriers to their involvement.

The project includes the following:

What impact has the project made?
The project has been a breath of fresh air to the school, offering opportunities within STEM, that without the funding, would not of been possible. The garden has helped pupils explore science in a fun engaging way, developing their education around life cycles, growing plants, climate effects, habitats and weather.

It was also fantastic to hear the positive impact the “Code Club” has had on the pupils. Pupils have been immerged in the world of code, with top technical practices such as HTML, Java and CSS being learned at the school.

These skills go a long way in providing the pupils a brilliant opportunity to kickstart their career within STEM.

How the Millennium Point Charitable Trust can help you
The Millennium Point Charitable Trust is committed to supporting the growth of STEM education in the West Midlands region, through funding, resources, projects and events.

The event saw digital employers including Goldman Sachs, Avanti West Coast, Pinsent Masons and Intercity Technology meet with 165 young women from schools across the West Midlands, at an event designed to raise awareness of careers in digital and technology, and in turn help improve diversity and encourage social mobility in the sector.

Following the success of three previous #GirlTechWM events funded by Millennium Point Trust and delivered by Ahead Partnership, this year’s event took place at Millennium Point in Birmingham on 29 April and saw 12-14 year-olds from 11 secondary schools across the region meet face-to-face with female role models working at organisations that employ digital talent. For many students this was the first opportunity to meet employers in person since the start of the pandemic.

Throughout this exciting tech and digital careers experience day, the young women had the opportunity to hear inspiring guest speeches from professionals including Jennifer Wait from Goldman Sachs and Amy Elliot, placement coordinator at SUMO Digital. The students also got involved in interactive workshops where they were able to ask questions to professionals already succeeding in roles like Senior Business Analyst, Placement Programmer and Chief People Officer, and a large scale challenge hosted by Avanti West Coast.

After learning about the different roles available to them and the skills required to succeed, 95% of the female students that attended said that they understood what skills they need to get into digital following the event. Meanwhile, the number of young women interested in digital careers following the event was an impressive 87%.

Stephanie Burras CBE, chief executive of Ahead Partnership, said:

“Our #GirlTech events are extremely popular and effective, with volunteers from a diverse range of businesses and organisations keen to get involved, share their experiences and promote the opportunities available within the digital and tech sector to young women beyond school.

“Our recent West Midlands event at Millennium Point was a great success; the feedback that we have received shows that the students found it really informative and the wide range of organisations involved demonstrates the real breadth of opportunity available to those hoping to thrive in a digital career. We targeted the event at young women in years eight and nine to help them apply their learning from the day when making their GCSE subject choices, and the students reported that #GirlTechWM has really helped to equip them with the knowledge and confidence to pursue their own paths in this thriving sector.”

Abbie Vlahakis, Chief Executive of Millennium Point Trust, also commented:

“#GirlTechWM is a really important initiative; we’re proud to work with Ahead Partnership to bring so many employers and young women together for a day of careers learning and inspiration.

“The event is always a fantastic opportunity for young women to meet with and learn from inspiring female role models pursuing successful careers in digital and technology – but it’s also a really rewarding experience for the businesses involved, enabling volunteers to make a meaningful contribution while showcasing the opportunities available for young women looking to succeed in tech roles at their own organisations.”

Sponsored by Millennium Point Trust, #GirlTechWM was free for schools to attend. Businesses involved in the wide range of activities taking place throughout the day were Avanti West Coast; Pinsent Masons; Sumo Digital; Goldman Sachs; Intercity Technology; Spica; Lanchester Archive; Allianz; SES Engineering; BAM Construction; and InMoment.

Successfully raising awareness and promoting interest in technology careers, the event encouraged a 155% increase in the number of students that were now considering working in digital compared to before the event.’

At the reception desk in our landmark building, stands a nicely decorated bucket. The contents, just empty pens, but what happens to those pens is raising money that will then be donated to NSPCC and Childline.

By dropping off your empty pens, they can then be recycled for money, which can then go towards the fantastic work the charities do. The Bee Happy Campaign was started by two children, they are leading the way to sustainability and charity giving, and they started it all from their home.

The pen collection bucket is sat on reception at Millennium Point, if you have any empty pens don’t forget to bring them in and help make a change.

About ‘The Children’s BEE Happy Campaign’

Bazzie and Joshua, aged 7 & 5, won Morrisons Sheldon’s Little Sunshine award in 2020. But they didn’t stop there, they are now launching a campaign to collect and recycle pens and writing materials. The inspiring duo wanted to avoid them going into landfill and help the planet by periodically collecting them up from schools, businesses, and community. The pens are then collected and taken to Mel who is Morrison’s Community Champion who will then recycle them, and the money raised from doing this will go to NSPCC and Childline.

Every bucket will have Childline’s helpline number and designed by Bazzie and Joshua with facts about what animals have taught humans and what we can do to be kind to our planet.

They aim between January and June 2022 to get 102 buckets out collecting pens. The reason behind the number is in memory of Captain Tom who inspired them to start fundraising.

The boys campaign statement says ‘We hope you can support us by putting your pens in the buckets we put out, having a bucket or two off us or sponsoring us to get 102 buckets permanent homes in our communities and spreading the word together we can help our planet and vulnerable children too.

‘Our dot-to-dot smiley face will be on every bucket as it’s become our symbol of encouraging everyone to work together and join up the dots that way, we believe everyone can all ‘Bee Happy’ now and in the future’.

As an award-winning-charity, Millennium Point were happy to get involved

After hearing about why Bazzie and Joshua were collecting pens, we were eager to start collecting pens for them. Last month, we got to meet Bazzie, and after talking about the importance of recycling and helping charity, we were then left with the very hard decision of picking which designed bucket that would take residency in our reception area.

In fact, we even took two buckets, one for reception, the other now sits in Millennium Point’s office… we better start collecting!

Keep an eye out for the collection bucket on your next visit to Millennium Point, don’t forget to bring your empty pens too, together we can become more sustainable, while giving to charity in the process.
