We are passionate about giving back, which is why year upon year we choose two charities to represent and take part in various fundraising activities to raise much needed funds. These charities are chosen and voted for by our staff, making them extremely relatable with sometimes people even experiencing themselves the amazing work the charities do. We are delighted to announce that our charities for the year for 2023 are Mind and Prostate Cancer UK.
Mind are a mental health charity who are their to offer supportive and reliable information that can change people's lives. They empower people to understand their mental health and the choices available to them.
Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men. They're investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.
We'll be taking part in different fundraising events across our branches over the next year, so keep your eyes peeled and help support our fundraising mission as best you can.
