You helped us do even more good this Christmas

We’re sharing a £25,000 donation between three charities

At Christmas we made the decision to give £25,000 to charity instead of producing and sending corporate Christmas cards in the UK.

Many of our customers, employees and partners helped us decide which charity to support through voting and nearly 1,500 votes were cast. Voting has now closed and we will be making the following donations:

  • 40% of votes were for Crisis. This charity will receive £10,000

  • 30% of votes were for Great Ormond Street Hospital. This charity will receive £7,500

  • 30% of votes were for Age UK. This charity will also receive £7,500.

Here’s what each charity told us the difference our donation could make

  • Age UK

     

    Our support could fund friendship calls for lonely elderly people who have no-one else to talk to.

    Or we could enable the running of their helpline to answer calls from elderly people needing advice.

  • Crisis

     

    We could give homeless people a Christmas to remember by providing hot food, showers, clean clothes and a comfy bed for the night.

    We could also help them to provide appointments with doctors, opticians and dentists and advice on housing and employment.

  • Great Ormond Street Hospital

     

    A donation could help fund a play specialist at the hospital, providing much needed interactions with children who are confined to their bed or ward.
