We believe that it's our duty to contribute positively to our wider community and charitable causes.
'Charity of the Year' pledge
We have a ‘Charity of the Year’ pledge whereby we commit a proportion of our turnover to a nominated charity.
Charities are selected based upon a personal connection between an employee and a particular cause, or one that reflects the plight of individuals affected by events outside of their control.
This year’s charity is Brook Cottage Farm RDA (Riding for the Disable Association) who have a fundraising project in place to construct a sensory riding and carriage driving track.
Registered Charity: 1183505
The track will provide a safe route for children and adults with physical disabilities to enjoy riding and carriage-driving on.
Sensory Input: It will also provide visual, auditory and olfactory stimulation with music, lights, tactile toys, textures and surfaces to activate all of the senses & enable people of all abilities to participate.
Environmental Enrichment: The area will be enhanced with fragrant plants and shrubs such as jasmine, clematis, lavender, honeysuckle and rosemary, as well as structures such as picnic benches, arches, pathways, pergolas, statues of a variety of animals and gnomes.
Themed Community Events: The project will be customised for Christmas, Easter, Halloween, birthdays, social gatherings and as a meeting place for community groups, enabling social interaction and the building of self-esteem.
Sports and Recreation: Whatever the individual's ability, they will have access sport and recreation safely to improve emotional, physical and mental well-being.
The track will be a wonderful asset to the RDA groups at the riding school and will be used for seasonal activities that can be accessed by the wider RDA community.
Brook Cottage Farm RDA is underfunded. The charity NEEDS our help. So let's help them together.

We are also proud to have supported the following charities in previous years:
Registered Charity: 1193368
The Unbeatable Eva Foundation which supports children and families affected by DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).
DIPG is a terminal diagnosis. Each year, around 30 to 40 children in the UK are diagnosed with DIPG, and as of today, there are no medical options other than standard radiotherapy – the same treatment which was offered to children 60+ years ago.
Donations provided children diagnosed with DIPG, along with their siblings, gift boxes, each tailored to be packed with presents that will hopefully create an incredible experience for the family. These presents may include phones, gaming devices, craft, teddies, dolls, or just about anything which is requested. ‘Experience days’ and short breaks are also included; it's all about helping to create memories for the family.
Registered Charity: 1154032
The Childhood Trust is dedicated to alleviating the impact of poverty on children and young people living in the capital.
This particularly strikes a chord during the current pandemic as lockdowns have left 1 in 3 disadvantaged children in London suffering from anxiety and depression.
Under lockdown measures, disadvantaged children have experienced chronic anxiety, stress, hunger, domestic violence, loss of peer support and mental health deterioration with disastrous long-term consequences for their education, well-being, and life chances. Research with 75 charities in London supporting 85,890 children has found that disadvantaged children are now suffering from serious mental health disorders at twice the rate of children nationally.
To help vulnerable children recover and to stop the toxic legacy of the lockdowns, The Childhood Trust's Champions for Children campaign will fund 111 projects providing vitally needed fun activities, meals, and emotional support this summer and beyond for 150,000 of London’s most vulnerable children.
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.
It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.
SarcoidosisUK is a charity funded solely from personal donations – of both time and money.
Sarcoidosis is a rare auto-immune disease and suffers from poor quality information, low levels of support and almost no research into finding a cure.
SarcoidosisUK works to change that.
Information and support is mostly done by volunteers allowing the charity to put the vast majority of funds into research.
Make-A-Wish create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and life-changing.
We go above and beyond to grant amazing wishes to very amazing children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most.
Because a child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis - it should be about wonder, joy and hope.
Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
Since 1999 Willow has fulfilled more than 17,000 Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
New Leaf Search goes extra 13.1 miles for Cancer Research
(An extract from Leasing Life Publication)
A team from asset finance and leasing recruitment firm New Leaf Search ran a half-marathon in aid of Cancer Research UK. The team had previously decided to organise an event to raise money for charity. The choice of charity was an easy decision. Neel Amin, Managing Director explained: “We each have loved ones that are or have been affected by cancer – so the work conducted by Cancer Research UK is close to our hearts and an ideal fundraising choice. The harder decision was to choose a fully inclusive event for the team. Having ruled out head shaving, sky diving and desert trekking, we finally decided to take on London Royal Parks Half Marathon." Since the team had no previous distance running experience, Neel described the event as a “tough ask” but said the New Leaf Search runners had trained hard for several weeks to accomplish the feat; driven and motivated by raising money for their chosen charity. Well done to the Superhero Recruiters!
