• Making a positive and lasting difference

    We support smaller charities where relatively small grants can make a huge difference. Working in this way also means that every year we can support hundreds of charities and reach more people: over the last 24 years we’ve raised over £50 million, supporting hundreds of charities.

    Working together to support those in need

    We’re a grant-making charity with a difference: most of our funds are raised from donations or fundraising by our Partners and employees, and the company matches every pound we raise.

    Children of Courage Awards

    Started by Partner Stephen Mitchell in 2011, this year the Yorkshire Children of Courage awards raised over £100,000. Over 700 people attended the event where 12 young people were honoured for their achievements including young carer Rosie King, who supports her parents and cares for her two younger siblings who both have autism.

    Hope and Homes for Children

    We’ve been supporting Hope and Homes for Children for 12 years, donating over £5million to support their work. This year, Partner Ian Jamieson undertook the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon, raising over £36,000. The money raised will mean 30 children can leave orphanages for foster homes, families or community-based care.
