Outward Giving

Our Outward Giving programme supports various local and national charities with dedicated collections and fundraising events. The primary beneficiaries of our support are:

British Humanitarian Aid

British Humanitarian Aid logo

“British Humanitarian Aid (BHA) actively seeks monetary and material donations in order to ease the suffering in Chernihiv Region, Ukraine, where the collapse of the economy in 2014 and the huge refugee problem, caused by the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the war in the Eastern States, have led to an impoverishment of individuals and families, with which the local authorities are ill equipped to cope. We work throughout the huge region wherever we find positive people who care about their communities. “
