Any charity can apply to become our company charity; the only requirement is that the charity operates within our trading region of the South of England - from Dartmoor in the West to Sevenoaks in the East.
If you would like to become our next charity you can be nominated by one of our houses or you can apply directly to Anthony Woodhouse, firstname.lastname@example.org using the form overleaf. For more information please download our charity brochure below.
The charity is selected via nominations throughout the year and a company-wide vote, which is held in February. All applicants and nominees will then be contacted to inform them if they have been successful.
The winning charity will then be publicly announced in March.
