Firm Charity of the Year
The cornerstone of our CSR policy is our charity of the year.
Each year, members of staff are given the opportunity to vote for a charity which we can help with fund raising activities, we aim also to increase awareness among our staff and clients of their activities.
Our CSR Committee organises a programme of fundraising events and activities such as coffee mornings, duathlons, marathons, walks, bike rides, art exhibitions, quiz nights and Christmas Fairs as well as providing work experience opportunities for people associated with our charity.
