The Hive

Our Ethos & Charity

The Hive was set up with the community in mind – as part of this we have spent considerable time assessing how our arrival will impact the local area. Our aim is to have a positive impact on the people, local business and the environment. Our Ethos is designed to reflect this, we are always aiming to improve and if you have any further suggestions for us to consider, please feel free to get in touch.

Supporting the West Kent Mind Charity

The Hive’s chosen charity is West Kent Mind. Never has supporting those with mental health issues being so important. Please help us raise much needed funds to help them with their valuable work.

You can do this by donating here through our JustGiving page, or by making a donation at The Hive when you attend one of our Big Buzz business networking or other events. We have a dedicated sealed collections urn which you can pop a donation into. It will be handed to  West Kent Mind when it is full.

What is The Hive and why have we chosen to support West Kent Mind ?

The Hive is a multi-purpose social and business hub designed to bring people together. Friends and family have coffee and dine here. Our meeting rooms offer confidential space for people to talk. Our co-working community offers a place for workers to hot desk, collaborate and form valuable relationships.

More than anything The Hive is about connecting people to create a lively buzz. A special space where everyone and anyone feels welcome and that includes those that seek company, want to talk and need support. Team Hive spends a lot of time speaking with visitors that have either had or are currently struggling with mental health issues or know somebody else that does, so our chosen charity is West Kent Mind. After all it could be any one of us that needs their help at some point in our lives.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.
