Corporate Social Responsibility

We strongly believe in the importance of providing ongoing support to charitable ventures.

Our ‘Charity of the Year’ is Cancer Research UK 

Every two minutes, someone in the UK will develop cancer and every four minutes someone will pass away from the disease.

This year, our people have voted to support Cancer Research UK as our charity of the year. Formed over 20 years ago, Cancer Research UK invests over $400 million yearly in 39 countries to identify cases and discover new cures. Thanks to the work of the charity, the survival rate has doubled in the UK since the 1970s with 2 in 4 individuals now surviving the disease.
