Corporate Charity Work
As a business, we work with a number of water sector clients in the UK to ensure that clean water can be delivered from reservoirs to home on demand. We’re fortunate enough to live in a country that can take clean water at the turn of a tap for granted.
In 2013, we worked with these clients and donated over £32,000 through sponsorships, gifts and donations to WaterAid, in addition to employee fundraising for the charity.
We’re delighted to continue our support for the charity during 2013 and continue to encourage our employees to take part in fundraising and awareness raising initiatives throughout the year.
We actively promote fundraising opportunities for WaterAid. Employees fundraising for the charity can apply for their fundraising efforts to be supported by the company through the Bentley Fundraisers scheme, which matches their fundraising up to £100.
Workplace Fundraising provides an opportunity for employees to increase their understanding of some of the global challenges WaterAid seeks to overcome every day, whilst raising funds and having fun. We encourage our employees to organise fundraising events at work in a fun and safe way.
As a green initiative to minimise electronic waste, we clean down our computers and laptops of data when they are due to be replaced and offer these for sale at a very reasonable price to our employees. 100% of the proceeds from these sales is donated directly to WaterAid.
Company Charity of the Year
A company-wide employee vote saw Cancer Research UK selected as JN Bentley's 2014 Company Charity of the Year.
