Now in their eighth year, the Third Sector Business Charity Awards recognise the outstanding contribution made by UK businesses to good causes. We were delighted to play a part as one of the main event sponsors.
The Guardian and Observer’s 2016 appeal has raised over £1,750,000 for child refugees, making it the second biggest charity fundraiser in the papers’ histories. It has been a privilege for us to help manage readers' donations.
The business of running a charity in today's society is a lot more than just kind hearts. The challenges are big and complex. That is why we have been involved in a new programme, made in partnership with ACEVO and ITN Productions and introduced by Natasha Kaplinsky, to help highlight the issues and show how working together can have a massive impact.
Designed to showcase Payroll Giving excellence, this year's awards ceremony took place at St Martin in the Fields on 16th November. The calibre of entries was very high, with more entries received than ever before. As event sponsors, we were there to help celebrate with the winners.
More people are likely to donate to charity and give more money if they know their donation will be match-funded. “A Great Match” is the first-ever in depth research carried out into match-funding in the UK.
Liverpool and Sefton Chamber of Commerce members, Alder Hey Children’s Charity and Charities Trust have joined forces to launch a new Payroll Giving campaign allowing employees to donate to their favourite charity straight from their pay easily and tax efficiently.
