- Charity Support
Travis Perkins is keenly involved in supporting the local communities in which it operates, and Travis Perkins plc donated more than £1.8 million to worthwhile causes in 2014. Travis Perkins greatly appreciates the efforts and kind donations made by its employees, customers and suppliers, and hopes to equal or better its donation to charities this year.
This year, our fundraising efforts are supporting: Macmillan Cancer Support
When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life. Macmillan know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and they are there to support you through. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, they are there.
They will help you make the choices you need to take back control, so you can start to feel like yourself again. No one should face cancer alone. Macmillan, with the help of Travis Perkins and its other corporate supporters, want to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people
Travis Perkins reviews its partner charities every three years. Our partnership with Macmillan runs until the end of 2017. If you are looking for charitable support please email communications@travisperkins.
A charity committee helps to steer a variety of fundraising activities at branches nationwide and Travis Perkins head office throughout the year. Past events have included parachute jumps, marathons and fun runs, auctions, charity balls, Lands End to John O’Groats cycle challenges, car washes and much more.
Travis Perkins also operates Payroll Giving, enabling its employees to donate to charity directly from their salary. The company matches any donation made by colleagues to its partner charity. Travis Perkins also runs a colleague lottery and salary sacrifice scheme called 'Small Change, Big Difference', where employees donate the ‘spare’ pennies from their monthly salary to its partner charity.
