Supporting our Charities


As an employer we believe it is important to put something back into the community, at a local, national and an international level.

Local

Locally we support various charities either by raising money, donating our time or by donating to special events. One such event is the Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival.  We participate each year and since 2008 we have raised over £6,500 for the East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

National

We take part in a number of charity and fund raising events throughout the year. Grocery Aid is one charity we support which helps people all over the UK who have worked, or are working, in the grocery industry and who need some extra support to get by.

International

As part of our global sustainability strategy we help support the local communities where we source our products from. For a number of years, we have been supporting one of our key suppliers in South Africa by providing school places to disadvantaged children. We have now increased our funding to support a primary school teacher and her assistant to not only provide sustainability for the primary school aged children to attend the centre on a daily basis but also allowing much needed funds to be spent on important educational equipment.
