Every two years, we ask our employees to nominate and select a corporate charity for us to support. In the last five years we have raised over £50,000 for charities including Leukemia Research and Cancer Research. Our current charity is Alzheimer’s Society and we have pledge to raise £30,000 for them by July 2014.
Our employees drive the fundraising with family events, charity sports days, raffles, bake sales and an annual ‘Bristan’s Got Talent’ event. Our parent company, Masco, then matches every pound raised.

In addition to our overall corporate charity, we also support local charities through our Community Chest initiative where employees nominate and select a local charity or organisation every quarter to receive a donation of £250.
