Giving back to the local community.
Sometimes we need to take time out of our hectic schedules and play a part in making a positive impact to the community on our door step.
H&G are passionate about giving back and have invested in several charities close to their heart. We have sponsored or worked along-side the following charities:
Red Nose Day / Comic Relief
Members of the H&G team at Sainsburys Waltham Point took part in a 40-mile bike ride for Red Nose Day 2019, raising over £600 for Comic Relief!
Comic Relief is a charity that supports vulnerable people in the UK and internationally, in the quest to stop poverty, provide safe places to live, help children thrive and much more.
The H&G Recruitment team are proud to support the Willow Foundation – a fantastic charity that fulfil unique and unforgettable Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
We will be attending their charity ball in 2019, raising money to help young adults with serious illnesses make treasured memories. The evening will celebrate Willow’s 20th anniversary and thank their ambassadors, supporters and fundraisers.
Keech Hospice – Colour Dash
On Sunday 16th July, the H&G Recruitment team got involved in this year’s Colour Dash in support of Keech Hospice Care.
We supported the event through sponsoring the team, as well as running through 5 kilometres of paint splatters on the day. We’re so proud to have been involved in an event for such a fantastic cause, and we had a great time!
Kent Carrington Ball
In support of Parkinson’s UK, Cancer Research and Macmillan, members of the H&G Recruitment team attended the Summer Charity Ball in Kent on Friday 7th July 2017. We also supported this event by donating prizes and prosecco.
We’re so pleased to hear that the event raised over £4,000 for the chosen charities – what a fantastic achievement!
More recently we have sponsored, and representatives have taken part in, the Race for Life Pretty Muddy, which has, at present, raised over £1205 for Cancer Research.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound donated makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work – raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/about-our-events/pretty-muddy
Noah’s Ark and Claire House Children’s Hospices
This Easter we worked in partnership with local businesses to donate Easter eggs to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and Claire House Children’s Hospice for poorly children spending the holiday weekend away from family and friends. Many of the H&G Recruitment Solutions team took part, even Frank our mascot.
