We’re proud to support three permanent charities, and a fourth that our employees vote for every year, to become the focus for many fundraising events and activities. Our charity partners are:
• BEN – the motor industry charity
• Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes
• The Milton Keynes Community Foundation
Our chosen charity for 2016 is Cancer Research UK.
Every year our Charity Committee, made up of volunteers from across the organisation, help to organise a wide range of initiatives in support of worthy causes. From bike rides to marathons to zumbathons, our people love to get involved. In the office, there’s barely a week goes by without a cake sale or baking competition – never under-estimate the fund-raising power of food! As a company, we think it’s only right we support our employees’ charitable activities so we regularly boost their fund raising with a company contribution. We also have a volunteering policy to encourage people to donate their time. All our employees can spend a day a year on charitable or community work, and if they take time off to help out, we’ll match this with extra holiday allowance.
