UK Charity update.
Each year our associates choose a charitable cause local to each of our UK office locations to receive a donation from the Company. For 2017 the charity chosen by our Darlington office is The Great North Air Ambulance who bring pioneering pre-hospital care to hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year. They have received a corporate donation of £11,000. The charity chosen by our London office is King’s College Hospital. Their corporate donation of £36,000 will help fund their Critical Care Unit. The charity chosen by our Brighton office is RISE who help those across Brighton, Hove and Sussex who have been affected by domestic abuse, giving them practical support to rebuild safer lives. They have received a corporate donation of £92,000.
Through associate donations which are triple matched by the Company, in addition to ad hoc corporate donations, we have also raised money for a variety of charities such as the British Heart Foundation, Alzheimer’s Society, Railway Children, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust, National Literacy Trust, Cystic Fibrosis, Mind, Cancer Research UK and YoungMinds Trust.
The total raised by associates so far this year is £7,042 and the total matched or donated by RiverStone so far is £160,875.
