Whitechurch in the Community
Last year a group of Whitechurch Ladies completed the Race for Life raising money for Cancer Research in memory of colleague.
Sales Director, Simon Snook embarked upon another challenge, this time cycling from London to Paris in 4 days, a total of 320 miles! Raising money for Penny Brohn Cancer Care.
Other charities supported include CLIC Sargent, a charity offering vital emotional, practical and financial support to young cancer patients and their families; and Macmillan Cancer Support, for whom our staff will be joining a nation of coffee drinkers and cake eating lovers to be part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning 2016.
We donate five percent of our profits to charities nominated by staff each year.
This year’s charities are:

St Vincent's provides counselling and structured supported housing to adults in recovery from substance misuse. Service users progress into volunteering roles and back into education, slowly building up self esteem and gaining valuable qualifications and experience as they move through the project. The end goal is to leave St Vincent’s confident that they can live independently, move back into employment and sustain their abstinence.
