Managed by a committee of volunteer employees, our ‘Global Giving’ scheme vows to donate a minimum of 1% the company’s profits to local charities, as well as hosting regular fundraisers throughout the year.
In the past 18 months, we are delighted to have donated over £40,000 to causes both big and small. From events like National Christmas Jumper Day to Movember, we’ve also made donations that we’ve been privileged enough to see the real impact of, including work with Thames Hospicecare, the Arbour Vale School and East Berkshire Women’s Aid.
