Being ‘nice’ is one of our core values, so we obviously felt that supporting charities should form part of our activities. We have therefore committed to giving 10% of our profits each year to charity, half to a charity in the Yorkshire region, and half to a charity in the developing world.
The charities we are supporting in 2017 are:
Beverley Community Lift
BCL offers a caring and supportive voluntary service for people who cannot easily use other forms of transport, eg. the elderly, disabled or those who are rurally isolated.
We are in the process of setting up a project in conjunction with Action Aid to support girls in the poorest communities to allow them to go to school by enabling them to become self-sufficient in producing sanitary wear.
