Our approach to corporate social responsibility embodies our values and beliefs. We take our role within society very seriously, to be a good employer, to deal fairly with suppliers and customers, to behave responsibly and to support good causes.
Working with charities and promoting worthwhile causes is extremely important to us and we hold an annual charity ball.
Our charity work began with our very first Charity Ball, to provide much needed fundraising activity for The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We raised over £6,000 with a James Bond ‘GoldenEye’ Themed Charity Ball.
For our second charity ball we fundraised for St Leonard’s Hospice, with a Masquerade-themed evening. The event was once again a resounding success and this time we raised over £7,000!
In 2017 we held a Halloween Ball in support of Martin House Children’s Hospice. Martin House looks after children with a vast range of complex needs, and provides support for the entire family. The event raised over £6,000.
Other initiatives include participation in the EMC Silicon Cup which is the largest IT industry sailing regatta, open to novices and experienced sailors from different organisations’ and also Channel Partners. The event has grown rapidly since its inception in 2000 and sailing activities run alongside an action packed programme of social events and fundraising challenges to support the following causes, Dreams Come True, Jubilee Sailing Trust and the NSPCC.
