Giving back at Clipper
Clipper Contracting Group feel that it’s only by helping others that we can hope to make a difference to society. We see it as our duty to lead from the front in this respect and that’s why each year, we nominate two charities for whom we will concentrate our efforts throughout the year. With the effects of Covid-19 hitting charities like no other, now is the time to stand together and help our local
areas as much as possible (not just our pubs...!)
You'll see below our chosen charities and an insight to their work.
Julia’s House is not a typical children’s hospice. Through frequent and regular support both at home and at their hospices, they’re able to provide an exceptional level of care for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions but also practical and emotional support for their families. Local to us in the South West, we’re aiming to help this local charity raise money that will allow them to provide 2 ½ days of play sessions at one of their hospices. We've previously complete half marathons and long walks to raise as much as possible and plan to carry out as many events as 2021 Covid rules will allow. We hope you'll stand with us to support this great charity.
Starting as a grassroots movement in the 1990's, Surfers Against Sewage have dedicated themselves to the protection of the oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife around the UK. Through organising beach cleans to educating local schools about the effects of plastic waste, SAS have grown into a national charity covering all of the UK With waste reduction a core belief for many of our employees and central to our CSR strategy, our aim is to support SAS through local volunteer beach cleans and in raising funds for them to continue their educational projects. We have committed to their ‘250 club’ for businesses. Not only this, but we have gone green in our offices, using recycled toilet paper, mass recycling processes put in place and with our marketing - wheat pens for example, which I'm sure some of our clients reading this will still be using to this day!
We hope to give you all updates on our progress throughout year, and we hope if anything we can inspire more people to give back to their communities, as Winston Churchill said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
