We are an active member of the local community in the areas we operate in.
As examples, our Lichfield site supports local food festivals in the city and our Wigan site works closely with the local Wigan Youth Zone.
As part of our support to local nominated charities, our employees participate in fundraising events and raise money for good causes.
All sites support local charities, for example Lindsey Lodge hospice in Scunthorpe, St Giles Hospice in Lichfield and Queens Court Hospice in Southport. We work closely with these charities and sponsor some of their fundraising events throughout the year including their yearly Solstice walk events.
All sites offer all employees volunteering days to support local causes. In 2017 1 in 5 of our employees utilised their paid volunteering day to give their time and support to charity.
