We regularly support local charities at the David Manners Group, infact most months our staff incentives get people together to raise awareness of the importance of the work they do in the community.
Last month, we raised nearly £80 for Jeans for Genes day, a charity we have supported many times over the last year or so. It’s really simple. For one day, the suit trousers can stay in the wardrobe whilst we are able to put our best wranglers on display for the perfect end of term feeling.
In August we supported the Mini Zipper Run, a charity supporting The Ann Conroy Trust which helps the research and treatment into the condition of Syringomyelia and its associated disorders. We donated Classic Mini Accessories to be auctioned off, and next year we will be involved again.
Earlier in the year our Cake Bake’s raised over £100 for the Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove (and added a few kilo to the work force in the process).
Don’t be upset if you don’t get a Christmas Card from us this year as we choose to donate the money spent on corporate cards to Autism West Midlands, one of our chosen charities.
Whilst we do feel we make a significant contribution with our donations, for us it extends much further than this. We are able to communicate to our staff and customers why we are supporting local charities. Infact, our staff has a big say in the charities we support especially if we have someone close to us that has received help and would like return the thanks in some small way.
