Making a difference in our communities

Our staff volunteer and share their skills with local charities and community groups throughout the year. Each staff member is given 2 days paid volunteering time to support any charitable cause they choose.

In 2020 staff have volunteered their time with:

  • Local litter picks
  • Charity fun runs
  • Serving food at a local homeless shelters
  • Cash For Kids ‘Mission Christmas’ warehouse
  • Age UK ‘Good Friends’ delivering hot meals and telephoning the elderly in isolation
  • Flu Marshalling for the NHS



We also work closely with organisations who receive our charitable grants and in 2019 staff took part in the Daisy Chain ‘4 Peaks’ and ‘Dragon Boat Race’ events to raise additional funds for the charity.
