Supporting The Community
Supporting local charities and the community is at the heart of our business
Our Charities in 2023In the last eight years, we have raised over £120,000 for local charities. This year, we will be supporting and working with three charities that are all closely aligned with our visions and values to look after generations of customers and families and support the wellness of the community.
Abberton Rural Training
Abberton Rural Training is an educational charity providing practical and skills training alongside therapeutic support and mentoring to the residents of Essex and surrounding areas.
The courses have a particular focus on rural skills, including countryside & environment, horticulture, woodlands & land management. The courses provide life skills and employability skills alongside accredited learning, to help participants to access jobs, help them become self-employed, move into further education and training, or become involved in the local community by volunteering.Visit Website
Hope For Tomorrow
Hope for Tomorrow raise funds to purchase and maintain mobile cancer units that offer treatment for those needing treatment for cancer. They bring cancer care facilities into the heart of communities making it more convenient and less stressful for patients.
They currently have 14 units across the country, all individually named. We will be working with them to help support our local units named 'Maureen' which is based at Colchester Hospital and often visits Tesco carpark, Tiptree.Visit Website
