Every year, we donate 10% of our group profits to UK registered charities. Our employees are encouraged to nominate charities that are important to them.
The following charities are being supported in 2018-19.
Amid the Parisian upheavals of May 1968, a group of young doctors decided to go and help victims of wars and major disasters. This new brand of humanitarianism would reinvent the concept of emergency aid. They were to become Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders – MSF
At the Theodora Children’s Charity,?we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England.
We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do. Whether it’s helping Syrian children access education, rehabilitating ex-child soldiers in the Central African Republic or seeking justice for young people detained in Afghanistan,?long after the TV cameras have gone home.
If somebody is involved in a serious accident or suddenly taken ill, speed is of the essence. Giving a patient the best chance of making a full recovery, our Air Ambulance gets them to hospital as quickly as possible. The Ambucopter can fly at just under 160mph to any point in the two counties in less than 20 minutes!
We fly two regional air ambulances, across the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland. These two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies?over an area of 3850 square miles covering many of the UKs major road networks including the M1, M6, M69 and M42. With an average response of just 13 minutes, between them they attend on average 6 missions a day
Edale Mountain Rescue Team (EMRT) operates in the Peak District National Park in Derbshire and is one of the busiest Mountain Rescue Teams in the UK. In 2010 team members were involved in 140 incidents throughout our operational area which covers parts of Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
Below are charities that we have supported in previous years.
