As an established family run business, we are committed to giving back to our local community, to the areas and people that have helped shape our company over the past 50 years. As part of our ongoing “50 Year Into the Journey” Celebrations, T W White & Sons have launched a new Community Outreach programme. This year we have pledged to give a minimum of £10,000 to nearby charities and not-for-profit organisations to support those in need.
We know there are 100’s of good causes out there, working in all different sectors, and our Community Outreach programme is open to all of them, great and small. There are no stipulations on what type of organisation it is, anything from a local playgroup up to a large registered charity, only that the organisation must be active in areas local to one of our six locations.
In addition to the £10,000 already pledged by the company, a “Charity Champion” will be nominated from each of the T W White & Sons sites, who will be tasked with arranging small events throughout the year to help contribute and add to the Community Outreach pot.
At T W White & Sons we want to hear what our customers have to say. Do you know of a worthwhile cause that could do with a share of £10,000? If so, please let them know about our Community Outreach programme and ask them to apply. Application forms can be downloaded here.
Applications for the Community Outreach need to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th November 2014 and once shortlisted, we will be again turning to our customers to help vote where the money should go.
News of how the project is developing and further details on how you can vote for your chosen cause will be unveiled on our blog, so keep an eye out for more details.
