Every year, we raise thousands of pounds for charities which help those in need.

Charitable giving is part of our culture - but this means more to us than just writing a cheque. We have always been a responsible and proactive business, committed to supporting worthy causes.

We work closely with appointed charities to support their projects and help them achieve their goals.

We are fortunate to have employees who feel equally as strongly about contributing to our chosen charities and, in recent years, we have demonstrated our commitment by giving our time, ideas and support to a variety of groups.

How we raise money

Every penny raised is done so by our dedicated staff, who give up countless hours to deliver brilliant events for good causes.

Our Charity Committee - made up of staff from across our national network of offices - co-ordinates all fundraising activity.

In previous years, events have included 10k runs, half marathons and bake sales, as well as landmark lunch events in Edinburgh and Aberdeen which raised thousands pounds through auctions lots.

Previous charity partners

In 2014, we handed £32,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support, a cause we also supported in 2013.

Previously we have supported the British Heart Foundation, as well as a number of small charities which operate in the communities we work in.

Many of our Partners and staff have first-hand experience of the vital support these groups offer.

Our 2015 charity partner

Our fundraising efforts have now turned to Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), which staff have selected as their chosen charity for 2015.

CHAS provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people who have life-shortening conditions for which there is no known cure.
