Giving back matters
We’re passionate about giving back to the community and helping those who need it where we can. We do this on both a company level and an individual level to engage with causes close to our heart. Here’s an overview of just some of the charitable initiatives we’ve been involved in recently.
The Openwork Foundation
We’re proud supporters and ambassadors of The Openwork Foundation, whose work helps vulnerable children and adults in the UK and overseas. Our own Sarah Hogan is a member of the fundraising committee, and every year we get stuck in to raise as much money as we can through various activities.
An example of our efforts includes a coast-to-coast cycle challenge, where our team members raised £5,000 for the cause.
Homeless Support Project (HSP)
We make a monthly donation to the Homeless Support Project, a charity working towards brighter futures for vulnerable people in the Wigan and Leigh district.
Breast Cancer Now
Our Office Manager, Karen Fogg, holds an annual afternoon tea event to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, a charity which supports anyone affected by breast cancer.
Supporting causes close to our clients
We are also proud to support a selection of charities as nominated by our clients. In the last year we have donated to the following causes:
- The Stroke Association
- Cancer Research UK
- Centrepoint Homeless Charity
Our Team’s Challenges
Our team are always looking for a challenge and a way of raising vital funs for charities closest to their hearts.
Lauren Tudor took part in a cold open water swim raising over £500.00 for the PDSA.
“What an amazing feeling to be at one with nature and to manage my breathing so much so, that I was able to hold my breath comfortably for almost 2 minutes! The water was a very cold 8 degrees, and almost unbearable at first, but once we settled in, we actually enjoyed it.It was such an exhilarating experience, and one that I would definitely do again!”
Tom Kennedy took part in a charity Skydive in June 2020 for Shine for Sian, a charity created by Paul ‘Pud’ Waterhouse and his family after the loss of their beloved daughter Sian.
Over the past 18 months Pud and his family have worked tirelessly to raise awareness of mental health and raise funds for Lancashire Mind. To date the Shine for Sian campaign has raised over £50,000 for Lancashire Mind.
