Giving back to the Birmingham community
Lockdown has provided the perfect opportunity for us to ramp up our CSR activity. As a proud Birmingham business, we’ve put giving back at the top of our to-do list. In fact we’ve taken part in a charity drop-off initiative and a sponsored marathon for a local hospice.
Charity donations drop-off
In a bid against waste and fast fashion we’ve cleared out our closets to provide valuable donations to local charities. We worked with Age UK and KIT, a charity that provides families in need with childcare essentials. With this in mind we carefully selected and supplied the items that will be of most use, from clothes to toys and books.
A run for Primrose Hospice
Moreover our project coordinator, Shaun Richards, went a step further in his community giving during September. Shaun took part in a marathon to support Primrose Hospice, a charity close to his heart. Having helped care for Shaun’s father, the hospice supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Without doubt they provide both with the support they need during difficult times.
Shaun said: “So far I have raised £900, which will hopefully give the hospice a well-deserved boost and keep this vital service going.”
Our principal consultant, Eman Al-Hillawi reflects:
“Supporting the local community has always been important to us. A people-focused approach is central to our organisation and we are proud to reflect that in both our transformation projects and our activities outside of work.
“In the current environment, it’s vital to do what we can to help those who work hard to make a difference. If our donations provide someone with clothes for a job interview or toys to entertain their children, then we couldn’t be happier.”
