As part of our social responsibility we proudly support a number of charities each year and donate a proportion of our net profits to help them continue the amazing work they do. This year’s charities are:
Marie Curie Cancer Care support people living with any terminal illness, and their families. They offer expert care, guidance and support to help them get the most from the time they have left.
They’ve been carrying out this vital work for over 65 years and last year alone cared for over 40,000 people across the UK.
In 1974, Anthony Nolan became the world’s first stem cell donor register. Over 40 years later, they’re still at the forefront of a global community, giving a chance of life to people with blood cancer and blood disorders daily.
Thanks to the incredible work of their staff, more than 500,000 potential donors on their register, and the kindness of 25 million people on registries worldwide, they give three people a chance of life every day.
Alongside this, Anthony Nolan also conduct world-class research into stem cell matching and transplants, so they can make sure every person in need gets the best possible treatment.
The British Heart Foundation are the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research.
Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer but BHF are leading the fight against it. Their pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.
We are also an accredited Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage commitment sees everyone working within our organisation receive a minimum hourly wage significantly higher than the national minimum wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. It is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
We choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis and are very proud to do so!
