“We recognise that our most valuable asset is our people. We also recognise that through our employees and stakeholders we are part of a wider community; therefore we are committed to continuing to develop our corporate social responsibility. There are many worthwhile charities and organisations in need of support; each year we support a nominated charity by organising events to raise funds. As a local employer, the chosen charity is always one that is focused around benefiting local communities.”
