A positive role in the community
We want to play a positive role in the communities where we operate. We believe that the strength of our business and our people is related to the health and wellbeing of those communities. We continue to provide support, through our partnerships with selected charities and the Virgin Money Foundation, who work with grassroots organisations across the UK.
We’re proud to partner with Macmillan Cancer Support to help them reach more people living with or affected by cancer. Our Macmillan Champions, Neighbours and Guides have been instrumental in helping people impacted by cancer through fundraising, volunteering, raising awareness and providing vital support to our colleagues and customers.
Throughout the year, our colleague fundraising has reached £309k, setting us ahead of our target of £500k by end of FY23. In addition to this, we've made additional sponsorship and donations of £215k.
