Supporting our community in 2022

  • Posted

We are looking forward to being able to be more proactive in supporting our local community in 2022, now that we see restrictions on our lives due to COVID being eased by the government.

Our Community Focus value is our commitment to showing that we are passionate and active in giving back to the communities where we live and work.

Our staff are currently nominating charities they would like us to consider fundraising for in 2022. We will put these to a vote and have one charity that we focus our fundraising efforts on for this year.

We will be launching our environmental sustainability project in 2022, looking at ways in which we as a firm, and our staff in their daily lives, can reduce our impact on the environment.

As part of this project, we will be choosing one environmental charity project that we can support by giving our time to them in 2022 to help on activities where they need volunteers.

We are attending many events across the Yorkshire region, as sponsors and as speakers, but most of all to show our support for the work they are doing and help they are providing the community.

Some of the main events you will see us at are:

It will have an action packed event programme, including spectacular air and ground displays and an extensive military parade. Previous national events have attracted people from across the country and beyond, including VIP guests such as members of the Royal family.

By sending in our pledge to the Armed Forces Covenant we are fully registered and recognised as a business that promises to demonstrate our commitment to the Armed Forces Community and their families, not just on Armed Forces Day but all year round.
