This year, Wider Plan has donated over £35,500 to UK children’s charities. The charities we donate to are chosen a number of ways. Each month an employee, selected at random, can choose a UK children’s charity for a £250 donation. By doing this, we can reach smaller charities that really mean something to our employees; usually through personal experience.
We also accept charity nominations via our website and social media. The nominated children’s charities are all entered in to a draw. We donate £250 each month to a randomly drawn charity.
Wider Plan also donates on behalf of our clients. We run customer satisfaction surveys to our scheme members and donate £1 for each response to the employer’s chosen charity. Not only does this generate some wonderful donations; it also ensures we can continually measure and improve our level of service.
This Christmas we decided to ask our employees to choose the charity which will receive our Christmas donation of £1000. We are delighted to announce that our employees have chosen Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity.
Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity is a national charity, raising funds to improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. We hope our £1000 donation goes some way towards helping the charity support the children and families when they need it the most.
