Our work in the community
We enjoy getting involved with our local community and it helps that our staff are an active bunch. We regularly support local organisations, events, initiatives and award ceremonies through sponsorship and participation.
Our chosen office charities for 2018/20 are SAVES and Pancreatic Cancer UK and we have an enthusiastic charity committee that drives fundraising for both. Our biggest events are our golf days and bi-annual charity ball.
One of our favourite local events is Headway Somerset’s annual dragon boat race on the River Tone. We were proud to sponsor the 2018 race and next year, we will be racing for a podium finish!
We are committed to supporting the development of our younger members of staff. Our Next Generation Group hosts a number of events throughout the year to enable young professionals and local businesses to build their network.
