For the fourth consecutive year, our staff were given the opportunity to award one-off donations of up to £10,000 each to not-for-profit organisations. These donations fall outside of our normal focus areas and are often given to causes that staff members feel personally passionate about. This year we awarded nineteen new grants (totalling £190,000). The recipients of this years annual grants were:

Alzheimer’s Research UK, Bite Back 2030, Leukaemia UK, Live Unlimited, Music As Therapy International, Royal Mencap Society, Small Acts of Kindness Trust, Spread The WordTamasha Theatre Company, The Armitage Foundation, The Bike Project, The Elizabeth Foundation, The Kids Network, The Literacy Pirates, Tower Hamlets Opportunity Playgroup, UNICEF UK Yemen AppealWasafiri Magazine, Young Lewisham ProjectYoung Roots.
