Giving to Charity

Giving is a very strong part of our company ethos.

There are many Charities worldwide who devote their existence to unselfish and noble activities, bringing relief to men, women and children that are affected by illness, poverty, conflict and natural disasters.

We love giving, and are glad to support these Charities in what they do.

Every month we nominate a Charity to make a donation to, and we will display these below.

Help For Heroes - JUNE 2017
Help For Heroes

Help for Heroes supports those with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces.

No matter when someone served, we give them the support they need to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives. Our specialist team focuses on the five key areas of an individual’s life: medical, mind, body, spirit and family.

We provide support to the whole family to help them all cope with the challenges they face. Long-term recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about rebuilding lives.

The Sick Children's Trust - May 2017
Save the Children

We believe every family with a seriously ill child in hospital should be able to stay together, just minutes from their child’s bed during their treatment.

The Sick Children's Trust believes keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children.

We provide free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, to families with sick children in hospital in the UK.

Northumbria Blood Bikes

Northumbria Blood Bikes is a registered charity established by local volunteers to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, out of hours, between hospitals and healthcare sites and laboratories in North East England. We cover Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Darlington.

Blood Bike groups, across the country, seek to carry out this service free of charge, ensuring the limited resources of the NHS can be used where it makes a difference.

Northumbria Blood Bikes is dependent on charitable donations, solely run by volunteers, giving their own free time to run and deliver the service.

Young Lives vs Cancer

CLIC Sargent will also fight for young lives with cancer by taking what they tell us about the impact of cancer on their lives to the government, service providers and policy makers to improve things and make real change happen.
