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 2020-21.
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.
We are Amnesty International UK. We work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
As a global movement of over seven million people, Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation.
We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilise the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We received the Nobel Peace Prize for our life-saving work.
25 years ago, large swathes of the Midlands landscape had been left scarred by centuries of coal mining and other heavy industry. But a passionate group of people had a vision: a forest. The first forest to be created at scale in England for over 1000 years, it transformed and literally turned the landscape from black to green.
The London Children’s Book Project is a registered charity. We work with settings across the Capital to redistribute thousands of new and gently used books to children and their families.
Liberty Venn is a researcher and parent of two children living in West London. In the course of her work with literacy-oriented charities and with children’s publishers she became aware of the positive role that early access to books plays in children’s development and in their outcomes.
Stonebridge City Farm is a city farm in St. Ann’s, Nottingham. We look after a range of animals, large and small and grow seasonal vegetables and herbs. We also have a playground, café and shop.
The farm is open seven days a week to visitors who can enjoy a ‘small slice of the countryside in the heart of the city’. We do not charge an entrance fee in order to remain accessible to everyone – although we do encourage donations to help us run the farm.
As a leading autism charity we exist to ensure autistic people can live their lives with dignity, choice and independence.
Autism East Midlands was started on the initiative of a group of parents in 1968. Today we are still led by the parents and friends of autistic people. Autism is a complex, life-long disability which affects the development of communication, social and life skills.
Through the worldwide climbing community, we aim to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many. Climbers Against Cancer is a none profit organisation, with all proceeds donated directly to cancer research facilities throughout the world.
Funds are raised through the sale of our brightly coloured CAC t-shirts, warm and comfy hoodies, cool underwear and climbing holds via the website. Many fundraising events have taken place around the world with supporters selling the charity garments, climbing the height of famous mountains at their local walls/gyms, running marathons and many other interesting initiatives.
Below are charities that we have supported in previous years.
