Committed to giving back to charity and the local community.

We are committed to giving back through supporting charities and local community causes. This year, our staff have chosen Cancer Research UK as our charity of the year with a variety of fundraising initiatives and events planned throughout 2022.

Supporting charities and local causes is incredibly important to us. We continuously support and raise funds for The Prince’s Trust, along with The Change Makers Club and Action Aid which were formed by our founder and Chairman Matt Newing.  Our Charity of the year is collectively decided by all our staff members, through a vote. We are delighted to announce that we are now supporting Cancer Research UK for 2022.

Why Cancer Research UK?

Cancer Research UK received the highest number of votes from our team and there are many important reasons why they felt it was important to support them. Some of the most important reasons for wanting to support Cancer Research UK are the impact of the funding cuts, as a result of the pandemic, the personal experiences of our team with losses and wanting to ensure the vital support from this charity is there for those who need it.

Upcoming Fundraising Events

We have a variety of fundraising events and initiatives planned for the year and we are sure that our proactive team will create many initiatives of their own, which will receive our full support.
Over 40,000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year in the North West, so our support will help towards funding world-class projects and help to spread information and awareness about cancer to the public.

 

When searching for a new official charity to support, as a company, we knew it was important to give our backing to an organisation close to our employees’ hearts. Following a staff survey, Cancer Research UK was selected as our charity partner for 2022, as it encompasses all cancers. Alex Cliffe | Chief Operating Officer
