We’re really happy to share our three chosen corporate charities for 2021. Each is a worthy cause and we’ve been reading about the amazing work they do. For every new or renewed client contract, we’ll give a percentage of that income to one of the three charities – even though as a team we chose the charities, it will be our clients who get to choose who they donate to. This felt like a great way of giving something back but also democratising the choice.
When we asked our team to suggest a charity we could support as a business, it resulted in a truly inspiring list – so much so, we thought it would be good to think about how, as a team, we could get behind a few of the ones not selected as a Corporate Charity. The upshot is that we have chosen four more charities which we’ll be supporting on a quarterly basis. The four charities listed below have some local resonance with various team members and will give us the chance to collaborate on some fun challenges as a group throughout the year.
For our first quarter we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively walking the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats (roughly 1,000km) – with a dog in tow! So whether it’s with our own pooches, or joining a mate and their a four-legged friend, or perhaps even borrowing a dog, we hope this will inspire us all to get out from behind our screens during this winter’s lockdown and clock up some miles all in the name of a good cause.
