Standing with UkraineApril 2022
As part of our ‘Community Responsibility’ CSR Policy Aim, we set aside some money in December to be used to support to a charitable cause.
Our Community Responsibility includes being a good neighbour within the international community, we are part of.
In light of recent events, it has been suggested by your CSR Representatives that we use this to support those affected by the recent events in Ukraine and it’s bordering countries.
We are therefore donating £350 to the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) Emergency Appeal.
