Employees across Lycetts have had the opportunity to do their bit for charity, thanks to an employee grants scheme.
The insurance broker gave each employee the chance to nominate a charity of their choice and receive a £125 donation via MyGiving. Led by parent firm Ecclesiastical Insurance, it ultimately generated £25,000 for 140 fundraising organisations with 200 employees participating.
Among those to benefit were the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Bath Cats & Dogs Home, Northumbria Blood Bikes, the Durham Music Trust, Cancer Research UK, the Alzheimer’s Society and many more.
“A commitment to corporate social responsibility lies at the very the heart of Lycetts’ culture and ethos,” said Lycetts CEO Charles Foster (pictured).
“Not only do all of our available profits go to the Allchurches Trust, which in turn invests them back into the community, but our staff fully embrace the business’ charitable approach to giving back to those in need.
“We’re delighted to give our employees the opportunity to donate to the causes they care about, and to give deserving organisations an unexpected boost during these trying economic times.”
