Giving back matters
We're passionate about supporting charities and communities
We devote time and resources helping the wider communities in which we live, work and do business – supporting local and national charities through fundraising, donations and our voluntary hours programme.
We offer each employee two paid volunteer days each year.
We’ve supported over 90 local and national charities.
We've raised over £2 million, donating £148,210 to charities in 2021.
We donate £2 for every £1 raised by employees.
In partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, we provide funding to support breakfast clubs in five Edinburgh primary schools, providing local school children with a free, healthy and nutritional start to their day.
Each breakfast club runs for around 45-60 minutes before school. They can enjoy breakfasts such as cereal, toast, yoghurt, fruit, milk and water.
But breakfast clubs are more than just healthy eating. We know they improve attendance and concentration, as well as social skills and it helps the children to develop good eating habits early on in life. It also helps parents to juggle different work patterns allowing them to drop their children off earlier and safely at school, knowing they'll have eaten something before their lessons begin.
