Thank you to our branch charities
Every year in the run up to Christmas we welcome our branch charities into our business, to find out how the funds our people have raised will be put to use and to look back on the fundraising achievements of the year gone by.
Our employees have been fundraising for good causes close to their hearts for over 30 years, and in that time have raised over £1 million for Yorkshire charities. Every pound raised is matched by the business pound-for-pound, with the additional funds supporting the Bettys & Taylors Good Cause Awards – small community grants distributed by a team from across the business every three months.
In total our 1,400 staff raised £45,500 for ten Yorkshire charities in 2015. Our thanks go to our charity partners who have used the funds to support people and projects across the region including: Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal; SANDS, York; Breathe Easy, York; Herriot Hospice Homecare, Northallerton; Otley & District Riding for the Disabled; St Leonard’s Hospice, York; Saint Michael’s Hospice, Harrogate; Wellspring Therapy, Harrogate; and Parkinson’s Harrogate.
A further 70 local organizations received a Bettys & Taylors Good Cause Award.
