SUPPORTING YOUNG CARE LEAVERS

 

Supporting charities is something that is in the DNA of our people.

Since 2002 we’ve been encouraging colleagues to join with our communities, customers and suppliers to support one charity – chosen by our employees – through our Together Partnership. Since then colleagues have raised nearly £3 million for charities focussing on causes including: heart disease, cancer care, supporting young people and developing hospice care.

 

Our colleagues also support local causes and each year more than 125 local charities benefit from funds raised by colleagues - in all over £650,000 each year.

OUR TWO PRIORITY AREAS OF CHARITY SUPPORT:

Colleagues chose our current charity partner Barnardo’s in 2016 and we’re helping with two important projects for young care leavers:

HELPING COLLEAGUES GET INVOLVED:

Some of our colleagues actually work directly with charity projects as part of their role. Below are some examples of how our employees have got involved:

REFURBISHING A NEW CENTRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN GLASGOW

REFURBISHING A NEW CENTRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN GLASGOW

Business Development Director Stuart McKill has been heavily involved in various charity projects that have taken place in Scotland. This includes a Foundation sponsored project to build a new centre to help young disadvantaged people in Glasgow. In total more than £100,000 was donated to the Prince’s Trust in Glasgow to help with the refurbishment of the centre. That, together with a great deal of hands-on support, advice and materials has helped created a fantastic facility in Glasgow that helps more than 10,000 young people a year.

 

Stuart has also been heavily involved in creating new Gap Homes for care leavers in Scotland with our current partner Barnardos.

HAVING FUN. MAKING AN IMPACT. TRANSFORMING LIVES FOREVER.

Our colleagues look for fun ways to give back by fundraising, we must admit in sometimes hilarious ways! It’s always great to see that the money we raise is making an impact on the projects we’re involved in..

 

The Together Partnership brings colleagues from across all our 36 businesses together to fundraise for a common cause and they have risen to the challenge!  From branch BBQ’s, cake sales, and sponsored challenges (the Three Peaks Challenge is a favourite!) to organising Dragon Boat races with suppliers, customers and friends. We actively encourage our colleagues to get hands-on with our charity partners – as well as raising vital funds.

 

Colleagues also use their expertise to improve facilities at local charitable organisations and do regular ‘make-over’ work.
