Supporting the interests and causes close to the hearts of our team
Everyone here has interests and causes they want to support or pursue outside their day-to-day work and we make every effort to ensure they can.
We’re always getting involved in some sort of fundraising activity for our chosen charities. In recent years we've run marathons, completed the Three Peaks Challenge and organised dozens of sponsored events.
Later this year, some of the team are taking part in The Grand(ish) Tour to raise vital funds for Education for the Children, one of two charities we’re currently supporting:
Parkinson's UK is a national charity that focuses on improving the care, treatments and quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease.
The charity has a special place in our hearts as founders James and Greg’s father, Richard Bloor, suffered from Parkinson’s disease. He very sadly passed away in 2017. In part thanks to the support Richard received from Parkinson's UK, he never felt he was facing this life-changing neurological condition alone.
Staggeringly, around 145,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson's every year – that's roughly 1 in every 350 adults. Parkinson's UK’s vision is to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by the disease, and it’s our mission to help them.Visit the Parkinson's UK website
Education for the Children
We also regularly support Education For The Children (EFTC) – an international NGO based in Guatemala. Guatemala suffers from severe poverty and social issues and has one of the lowest literacy rates in the Western Hemisphere.
EFTC runs the School of Hope, a Primary and Secondary School that educates 462 impoverished children and supports another 215 Further Education students. The school enables children and young people, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to go to school, to get an education and break the cycle of poverty.Visit the EFTC website
Our charities would love your support
Please have a look at the amazing work of both charities. We hope that our support contributes to making a real difference to people’s lives in the UK and around the world.
If you’re willing and able, we hope you'll consider supporting them too.
