As a diverse business with bases across the UK, it’s important to give something back to the places we call home.
Cash for your Community
Cash for your Community in partnership with the Express and Star, is in its second year and is our way of contributing to community groups across the midlands. In 2014, we gave away a share of £30k and in 2015 we’re giving away a share of £35k. The scheme has seen us support a variety of good causes including Violets in Bloom, Willenhall Trinity Bowls Cluband The Black Country Rebels Dance Group to name a few. This is a hugely popular scheme and one that allows us to pledge our ongoing support to groups in one of our local areas.
Midlands Langar Seva Society
This is an inspiring charity that refuses to let those in need go hungry. Founded by the brother of one of our People, volunteers set up kitchens in cities across the Midlands to distribute hot food, snacks and clothes to the community. This charity has really resonated with our People who’ve fully supported the initiative with food collection points having been set up across the business. We’ve even donated one of our vans to enable volunteers to get food directly into the communities they serve.
Take a look at how we transformed our van to support The Midlands Langar Seva Society:
On top of all that we’re suckers for romance and couldn’t resist helping Paul propose to his now fiancée, Tara. With our help, Paul used our billboard to ask Tara to marry him. We created the billboard, Tara said yes and the rest is history!
In 2015 we were recognised for our contribution to the borough of Walsall by winning the Community Champion award at the Express and Star Business Awards. This accolade was hugely appreciated by everyone in the business as it acknowledges how we’ve worked together to help bring positive change to our Midlands home.
