Committed to improving local communities across Wales
We are committed to conducting all our business in an ethical and socially responsible manner. As a Welsh employer we recognise that the majority of our business is drawn from the communities in which we operate and our dedicated staff work hard to ‘give back’.
Our Social Committee proactively encourages staff to take part in all sorts of fundraising events. Over recent years we have run marathons, baked cakes, climbed mountains from Kilimanjaro to Pen Y Fan, and cycled around Wales to raise money for local charities including Wales Air Ambulance, Tenovus, Ty Hafan and Cancer Support. We raised £3,000 for our first chosen charity, LATCH.
We have supported the Sherman Theatre’s Peter Pan appeal enabling children across South Wales to attend the annual Christmas pantomime.
We have also carried out two beach clean-ups, picking up an assortment of plastic and litter from our beautiful coastline as part of our commitment to helping to protect the environment (demonstrated by our ISO 14001 Environmental Management certification). Members of staff volunteer to undertake an annual exercise that actively helps to make a difference.
