SUPPORTING LOCAL CHARITIES
Making a difference...
About our charitable giving
We believe businesses should give something back to the community within which they work. That's why we donate some of our time and profits to local groups and organisations who help to make life better for others.
We don't support political or religious causes but we do encourage community, welfare and education projects that make a difference to people's lives.
In the past year, we have provided our time and expertise to support a local Guide group with their accounts records. This frees up the leaders to get on with the important business of offering young people a chance to show what they can achieve. We also made a donation to an animal charity to enable them to rescue two severely-neglected animals who required a lot of rehabilitation to enjoy a normal life, for the first time.
In 2022 we made a donation to support a local newsletter team which faced production difficulties due to Covid-19. This helped them to cover some of their unexpected expenses and to continue to share local news within our neighbouring villages. We also made a donation to a young person's travel costs after being offered an opportunity of a lifetime to study at a US space agency.
In 2021, we donated food for hampers which were given to local people who would otherwise not have celebrated Christmas, due to difficulties during 'lockdown'.
If you are a local resident and would like us to consider a worthy cause for a financial award of up to £250, please get in touch and explain, briefly, what difference the grant would make.
Awards are made annually and will be at the discretion of the Directors.
