Making a difference to our communities
The Foundation is dedicated to supporting the organisations and programs that enhance the health, well-being and education of individuals and communities worldwide. In the UK, there are four different ways we support our local communities:
Site charity of the year:
Employees across each of our sites vote to support a local cause.
Supporting a nationwide initiative
Matching charity activities
We match the fund-raising achievements of employees.
We support employees as they serve their communities.
Actions speak louder than words
We are proud of the way our employees pull together each year to devote their time and energy to helping worthwhile causes. Employees also support nationwide fundraising days, such as World Mental Health Day and Macmillan Coffee Mornings. Across different sites, individuals take on a myriad of different challenges to raise funds. Here are just a few:
Perrigo UK dedicated a month to fundraising and saw a combination of ‘bake and lunch’ sales, auctions and raffles to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. They also donated time and resources to Vauxhall City Farm through our Volunteer Programme.
Barnsley Hospice provides specialist palliative care to local people with active and progressive life-limiting illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease and Parkinson’s disease. Our donations have helped support the refurbishment of the inpatient unit to help patients and their families feel comfortable and relaxed during their stay.
A team from Braunton’s Quality Control Lab embarked on the South West Tough Mudder (10 miles long with 25 obstacles!) to raise money for two local causes close to their heart: The North Devon Hospice and North Devon Animal Ambulance.
