We’ve planted our roots in Yorkshire and we believe in giving back to the place we call home.
Whether it’s raising valuable funds for our nominated charity of the year or pledging our support in the community from our Kindness Pot, we are passionate about lending a helping hand to local causes in the ways they need it most and bringing communities together.
OUR CHARITY OF THE YEAR
We are thrilled to reveal that following multiple nominations and a unanimous vote, our 2023 charity of the year is Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity that relies entirely on the generosity of the public. They provide a lifesaving rapid response service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire and currently attend on average 4 incidents every single day.
Through a series of fundraising events, till collections and united team efforts, we are hoping to raise £19,000 this year, which will fund a full day’s service.
THE KINDNESS POT
We know that giving back to causes is something very close to our team’s hearts. And we are lucky to have the biggest hearts, most helpful hands and thoughtful minds… that’s why it’s so important to us that we give our whole team the opportunity to give back to causes they care deeply about!
The Kindness Pot donates time, money or products to meaningful causes and each member of our team can submit a kindness request to support a charity or community initiative that means a lot to them.
