We’re committed to making ourselves a positive and integral part of the communities that we live amongst.

Minimising our environmental impact is at the heart of that commitment. From small gestures like letting anyone refill their water bottle in our branches to turning up by the minibus-load to clean up beaches and planting 150 trees to commemorate our 150 years.

Branches are encouraged to support their own social initiatives like raising much needed funds for local schools. Well, our neighbourhoods are our homes. There’s no one-size-fits-all, so we do what we can in the areas we serve and work.

And since 2013, we’ve worked passionately to do what we can for our own, very special charity partner, Cancer Research UK. Together we’ve raised £360,000 in the fight against cancer.
