Charity & Local Community Support
We see ourselves very much as part of the communities in which we operate and we believe in supporting and being actively involved in our local area. We currently support a range of charities and initiatives, local to each of our sites and are always looking for new ways to become involved. So if you have a suggestion or know a cause that could benefit from our help then please do get in touch and let us know about it.
We aim to play a positive role in our local communities. This is often where our customers live, and we like to be able to lend our support to causes close to their hearts. We follow our customers’ guidance as to the type of causes we should support and we have actively supported over 25 worthwhile causes to date, many of these on a regular and ongoing basis. We offer support either in cash, kind or with professional expertise & connections, depending on the specific need. Our customers are keen for us to support issues tackling poverty and supporting children in particular. We will continue to develop our activity in this area, looking to incorporate additional elements including volunteering where possible.
