Charity Partnerships and Bursary
Our employees are enthusiastic supporters of many charities and voluntary organisations and we see it as important that as a business we support this. We take a group wide approach to our philanthropic activities with group wide charity partners who are selected based on their impact, relevance to our priority themes and to our employees. We also have a local bursary, directed by the assets to enable them to support the most relevant organisations for their region. The allocation of these local bursaries are guided by a set of priorities as outlined below.
UK & Ireland Employee Charity Partner 2018-20
Every two years Hammerson selects a charity partner to work with via an employee nomination and vote. A short list, developed from employee suggestions, is drawn up. We invite the short listed charities in to present at a breakfast meeting, employee are then invited in to vote, and the winning charity is then announced.
The selected charity receive a cash donation but, more importantly, an opportunity to develop a relationship with the business and our employees. Colleagues are encouraged to fund raise for the charity in a variety of ways from marathons to bake sales.
The charity selected for 2018 - 2020 is The Outward Bound Trust
This partnership is in place from July 2018 to June 2020.
