Charity & Fundraising

Charity & Fundraising

As a family-run business, charity is at the heart of what we do.

We are proud to be able to help a range of fantastic local charities but we also believe that you can have fun whilst raising money too, which is why you'll regularly find us hosting cake sales or quiz nights to help raise money for these incredible causes. We also provide our employees with a day of paid leave each year for charitable or volunteer work.

Our chosen charity for this year is Naomi House & Jacksplace children's hospice, who provide expert care to children with life threatening illnesses, however we also work with a range of local charities. Just some of our efforts include:
