Our charity work
Over the past 5 years, UK Mail has been committed to Cancer Research UK; raising almost £500,000 over this period to help with the crucial work they do in preventing and treating cancers and saving so many lives. UK Mail’s chosen charity for 2012 to 2015 is the NSPCC, one of the UK’s largest children’s charities.
UK Mail & NSPCC:
We are proud to be supporting the NSPCC in its quest to end cruelty to children by both protecting those at risk from abuse and supporting their families.
Through various campaigns for changes in legislations and initiatives such as ChildLine and the Full Stop campaign, the NSPCC have been able to help more than 10 million children in the UK since it was founded in1880.
In addition to our £30,000 annual donation to the NSPCC, our staff organise ad hoc local fundraising activities such as dress down days or cake sales, which take place during working hours. We also run an employee payroll lottery scheme which generates around £3500 each year for the charity.
UK Mail encourages staff not only to fund raise, but also to give time for our nominated charity. ChildLine is part of the NSPCC; launched a schools service whereby volunteers visit primary schools to educate children about what is and isn’t acceptable and when they should speak to somebody at ChildLine about issues such as abuse or bullying. Staff are given time towards training and also the flexibility to adjust working hours to enable them to get involved.
