It says a lot about our Environment, Culture and Values. What we stand for. At Distinct, we set out to create a company that people are proud to work for, a company who people are proud to work with, and a company that gives back.
Bex and Michelle visited Stonebridge City Farm for their charity day in July 2017, where they built a clay oven from scratch.
Stonebridge are a fantastic charity, who help people in St Ann’s district who have money, rehabilitation and learning difficulties.
Organised by Charl, the ladies at Distinct visited Hound Lodge in West Bridgford to
donate items such as
food hampers, clothes, and Christmas presents for children of all
Hound Lodge provides accommodation for families across the country, who due to personal circumstance, be it domestic violence or bankruptcy have been in the unfortunate position to be made homeless.
For the fourth year in a row, Distinct ran a 5-a-side charity Football Tournament, in memory of Dan ‘The Legend’ Fletcher, who sadly passed away in 2016. The event is organised by Ryan, along with Dan’s former colleagues at Vision Express. Over the last four years, the tournament has managed to raise over £3,500 for The Teenage Cancer Trust.
We were honoured to partner up with Maggie’s charity at the East Midlands Finance Awards and hear first-hand on the night about the amazing work they do. So much so, that we decided to get in touch with them afterwards to see how we could help and have since done a couple of days painting & decorating at their centre.
Maggie’s Nottingham provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends.
Nottingham has over 200 people sleeping on the streets every night.
We’re proud to be supporting Tracy’s street kitchen. Their aim is
once a week to provide quality, nutritional food and a friendly face.
In 1981, at the age of 14, Tracy found herself sleeping rough in
Nottingham. Over time,
Tracy managed to gain employment and set up the kitchen which has
grown steadily over the last few years.
Come rain or shine, we are there on a Friday evening in Trinity Square – come and say hello!
We have ambitious plans for our CSR. As our business grows and we become more successful, it’s important to reinvest. But we’re not greedy, and there will come a time (and it’s coming soon) when we will be able to give back a lot more and hopefully make a huge difference to the lives of others. So, watch this space.
