We work together to support and protect the local community. Every year our colleagues vote on charities which mean something to them and we pick an overall charity to support through our own fundraising initiatives. The team organise all kinds of events to raise money for the charity from 10K runs, raffles, pub quiz nights to cake stalls.
Throughout the year, we also get involved with a number of charities close to our hearts. The Firecracker Ball, who raises money for Barnardo's supporting vulnerable children around the UK. The Crystal Ball, who support a number of local charities in the Yorkshire area, St Michael's Hospice fundraising events and we have recently donated the necessary funds to children's charity, Variety to enable them to purchase a Sunshine Coach. The Sunshine Coach scheme enables schools and organisations to plan activities without worrying about the cost and timing of public transport. Wheelchair access is taken care of and it allows those children with special needs to explore places they would otherwise never visit.
We recognise that involvement in the community benefits those with who we engage, the individual members of staff who are engaged, and the Company itself through its involvement and association with and through those in the community with who we interact with.
