We aim to be actively involved in a number of local charity events as this has been integral to our community ethos for over a decade. This includes golf days for local charities, local business awards and local sporting events.
From 2016-19 we were the front of shirt sponsors for League One’s Tranmere Rovers Football Club, the local football team to our Head office and are still very much involved with the team. We also have an advertising package with Championship side Leeds United, including digital board signage, corporate events and hospitality. As well as sponsoring professional sides, we sponsor a number of local children’s football teams including Bromborough and Eastham Girls JFC, Manchester Bees JFC, North East Leeds Mini Lionesses and Shore Villa FC.
We are also rugby sponsors too for Birmingham Bulls, Caldy RUFC and Wirral RUFC.
We have increased our level of support for return to work schemes. One of the most saddening effects of the recent recession has been the increase of young people not in employment, education or training (NEETS). Without the perception of moving away from servicing our customers, we have contributed to work experience schemes with local schools and return to work schemes.
We will continue to work with our local education and return to work partners to try to help as many young people as possible, in our local community, to receive positive experience in the workplace.
