InXpress made a concerted team effort to give practical support to a Northampton Community Centre, moving the #InXpressGivesBack initiative beyond just words.
On Wednesday 5th September, InXpress Head Office staff were joined by some of their franchisee network at Northampton DeafConnect. An army of 14 volunteers met in Northampton, the day before the InXpress Sales Conference, to offer their support to a charity helping people in their local community.
InXpress, globally, run various Gives Back campaigns, with franchisees visiting a charity and practically helping in any way they can. Jon White, InXpress CEO, explains:
"This is the first time InXpress have run this type of campaign here in the UK. Having seen how well the initiative has done in other countries, we were inspired by their successes through volunteering as a network."
Deafconnect is a charity which supports the deaf and hard of hearing in Northampton to live independently. Joanna Steer, Deafconnect CEO explains:
"We took over the community centre about five years ago from the Council. The idea being this would help with our long-term sustainability. The 14 people who turned up from InXpress, have given us a massive boost, and helped us to finish work we have struggled to do on our own, like decorating the rooms, and clearing the gardens."
InXpress regularly raise funds for good causes but wanted to donate their time too. They approached the Daventry Volunteer Centre, who put them in touch with Deafconnect.
Volunteers from InXpress Preston, Birmingham North West, Birmingham North, Guildford, Reading and Banbury worked hard to clear the outside of the Community Centre, including removing vine weed, and painting some of the communal rooms.
Jon led by example, alongside his team, and put his painting skills to good use:
"It was a lot of hard work, but worth making such an important contribution to an inspiring charity, on a practical level. It was great to see so many of our franchisees taking time away from the office, and volunteering to help the Gives Back campaign. It looks like we will have had a positive impact for the future of Deafconnect in the local community.”

I’ve known about franchising for quite a while and I’m reassured by the fact that 95% of franchisees are still in business after 5 years. New businesses often fail before the initial five years.Bill Carter, Liverpool franchisee since 2008
I chose to franchise with InXpress because it’s like someone’s got their arm around you. I also liked the fact that you didn’t need a lot to run the business. You can run it from home, an office or anywhere in the world as long as you’ve got an internet connection.Kully Sahota, Peterborough franchisee since October 2012
InXpress gives you a business concept and plan that you can run with. All you need is the right work ethic to deliver and make the business successful. There’s a model in place so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel – that was the biggest attraction for me.Lendy Mazur, Salisbury franchisee since February 2013
