This year we are delighted to announce Action Cancer as our charity of the year. Action Cancer is Northern Ireland’s leading, local cancer charity. It works to save lives and support local people through cancer awareness, prevention, detection and support. Action Cancer provide the following services to the local community:-
We will champion this charity throughout the year and have many fundraising events planned including The Action Cancer Bra Walk, The Belfast Half Marathon, The Charity Shop Takeover, the Zipline across the River Lagan and many more.
Our people continue to contribute throughout the year to other community events such as attending the Boom Gala Ball, organising coffee mornings and quizzes and provided tee shirts for fun runs to raise money for a number of other local charities.
Our policy of donating money to charity in lieu of Christmas cards will continue as will our policy of supporting charities that impact on team members.
The firm practices in Will Aid each year and will continue to do so. We were recently awarded one of the top donating firms of 2017. Will Aid supports the work of nine charity partners (Actionaid, Age UK, Trocaire, British red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCIAF and Sightsavers).
Our responsible approach extends to our suppliers, for example our water coolers are provided by Aqua Aid. Their products carry an automatic donation to charity, was has helped bring clean water to more than 2 million people.
We have sponsored Ards F.C. for over over 10 years and this illustrates our commitment to the local community in the North Down area.
