Telereal Trillium today confirmed its commitment to giving more money, time and energy to the voluntary sector, as part of the Give More campaign.
Launched today at a series of events across the UK, the 12-month campaign encourages people to share their passion for the causes they care about by making a public pledge to 'give more'.
As an early corporate supporter of the campaign, Telereal Trillium has committed to spreading the word of Give More as widely as possible.
David Godden, Client Director at Telereal Trillium said: “The voluntary sector is facing an unprecedented squeeze on resources and the Give More campaign will give the sector a much needed boost.
We are delighted to be a corporate partner of Give More, and will encourage our people and our partners to do what they can to show support to causes they care about”.
Mr Godden explains that while the company has a long established history of giving money, time and energy, there is always an opportunity to give more.
“At Telereal Trillium we encourage giving by matching money our people raise for their chosen charities through fundraising and our payroll giving scheme. We also give our people an annual volunteering day and for any volunteering undertaken outside of work hours, we match this with additional annual leave.
Give More is all about giving in a way that suits each individual, engaging in causes they care about and the communities around them. As an employer of more than 800 people across the UK, the initiative fits well within our approach to corporate responsibility”.
To show our commitment to the campaign, we are encouraging our people to give more in a way that works for them. As a first step we have increased our charity matching threshold by £500 to a total of £2,500 per person, per annum,” he said.
Give More is asking people to make a public commitment by pledging on their website. Visit www.givemore.org.uk for more information and to make a pledge.Download the full press release here>>
