Let's get caring

Working with our local community to lighten the load.

We work with a range of local charities and organisations, offering support to different groups within our community.

At Christmas, we host our annual pensioners’ lunch, partnering with local charities and community groups to treat those who may be lonely during the festive period to enjoy dinner and entertainment. In 2018, over 150 guests joined us for the celebratory lunch at our Cheadle headquarters.

In January 2017 we launched the Together Foodbank in a collaboration with Stockport Foodbank that continues to this day. This provides essential items to local people struggling to make ends meet. Since its inception, we’ve donated 4,581 items – a fantastic achievement.

 

Colleagues also volunteer at the distribution warehouse to weigh, date and pack our donations. Nigel Tedford, project manager at Stockport Foodbank, said: “We work closely with Together to collect items most urgently needed and receive a significant amount of donations. The amount of work undertaken by the volunteers in one afternoon would take more than a week using our usual number of volunteers, so giving their time, as well as donations, truly helps.”

 

We continue our partnership with the British Heart Foundation, providing unwanted clothes, books and toys for their Cheadle store. Colleagues can also take part in CPR lessons to learn vital lifesaving skills.

 

“It’s really important as an organisation to demonstrate that we care for our colleagues and the community around us. While it’s great to talk about, for me the best thing is seeing it become real, especially at the pensioner’s Christmas lunch. It’s hugely popular and I think our colleagues look forward to it almost as much as those who attend! But it’s not only at Christmas; we run important seasonal campaigns throughout the year – for example, our colleagues have donated 765 Easter eggs to Francis House Children’s Hospice in the last three years.” Pete Ball, Personal Finance CEO.
