The Cambridge Dictionary states: Corporate Social Responsibility is the idea that a company should be interested in and willing to help society and the environment as well as be concerned about the products and profits it makes.
We don’t just see this as an idea - wherever and whenever possible we actively try to make a difference:
Every little helps…
Like all businesses we generate waste in the form of paper, cardboard and plastics. We pride ourselves on dealing with this waste responsibly by recycling wherever possible. This means our staff take the time to separate any plastics the can be recycled from those that cannot be recycled; the cardboard paper and daily shredding are all bagged up and collected regularly by our waste management contractor; and if at all possible we re-use. Additionally, we use a reputable local firm for our bulk secure shredding requirements.
We actively support St Peter & St James Hospice through various fund raising activities including staff sponsored participation in local sporting events, specific sponsorship of events put on by the Hospice, and being part of their annual Make a Will Scheme.
We annually happily give our time to take part in two other Will writing schemes. One hosted by Cancer Research where we give our time at a significantly reduced rate and the other for Chestnut Tree House where we give our time for free with the expectation that the charity receives a gift in the person's Will.
We annually have great pleasure in being part of the Cuckfield Holy Trinity Christmas Tree Festival in December, which raises a significant amount of money each year for the chosen charity of the festival.
