    Looking back on how we supported our local communities in 2018

    31 January 2019

     



    We’ve been taking a look at how our kind-hearted colleagues gave something back to our local communities last year, through CAP and Into Action.

    Our Community Action Programme (CAP) gives all employees a day on company time to volunteer in our local communities. In 2018, over 600 of our people used their CAP day to help nearly 50 charities and organisations with activities such as cleaning up beaches and revamping outdoor areas for local charities.

    Through our Into Action scheme, we support our colleagues raising money for great causes by matching the funds raised. Last year, we contributed over £33,000 to 46 different charities and organisations such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Parkinson’s UK. 

    Our Head of Community Pamela Goee commented: “It’s great that so many of our people took advantage of our Into Action scheme and CAP last year. I’d like to say a big well done to all of them, and we look forward to supporting many more worthy causes in 2019.”
