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.

In the first year of our partnership, Virgin Money colleagues raised over £374,000 through a host of virtual and traditional fundraising events. Our colleagues have donated their time too with a number becoming Telephone Buddies during the coronavirus pandemic – giving high-value support to isolated people living with cancer. We’re working together to improve the help available for colleagues living with or affected by cancer including recruiting and training Macmillan Neighbours to provide peer-to-peer support.
