In The Community

david-allen-charity-of-year

David Allen is a well-known, reputable employer across Cumbria and we recognise the importance of supporting the local community in which we live and work.

As a business we receive hundreds of requests for sponsorship and donations from many individuals, charities, and organisations, most of which are very deserving.

However, as our resources are limited we are unfortunately not able to assist every good cause.  For this reason we have chosen to focus our efforts on one charity per year, known as our Charity of the Year.

Charity of the Year

We hold a number of fundraising events throughout the year such as bake days, quiz nights and treasure hunts, and all of the funds raised go to our Charity of the Year.

We choose our Charity of the Year in July each year with our ‘charity year’ running from August to August.

If you would like to be considered for our next Charity of the Year please submit a short written application (no more than 300 words) in support of your charity and send it to marketing@david-allen.co.uk or by post to:

Sponsorship and donation requests

Requests for sponsorship, donations or raffle prizes should be made by completing our request form.  Please note that the majority of our fundraising is focused on our Charity of the Year which dramatically reduces the level of help we give to other causes.

Please return your completed form by email to marketing@david-allen.co.uk or post to:

Give a day to charity

All employees of David Allen who wish to take part in voluntary, community, or charitable work are encouraged to do so.  In support of this initiative, each employee of the firm is granted one day per year, paid leave in order to get involved in a community or charity day.

This is a great way to support good causes and offers an opportunity for our colleagues to work together within their local community, on activities that directly benefit our local area.

Cumbria Community Foundation

If your application is unsuccessful then head over to the Cumbria Community Foundation website.

David Allen contribute to the Cumbria Community Foundation each year.  This worthwhile local cause looks to support people and organisations wishing to invest in the local community.  The Cumbria Community Foundation is an independent local charity and you could be just what they are looking for!

 

Great North Air Ambulance Service

Great North Air Ambulance
We are delighted to announce that following our hugely successful first year of operating a Charity of the Year initiative our staff team have voted The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) as our new charity Partner from September 2016.

GNAAS operates three helicopters, 365 days a year, across Cumbria, the North-East and North Yorkshire. GNAAS crews respond to around 1,000 call outs each year and on board each aircraft are specialist trauma doctors and paramedics, who bring accident and emergency expertise to the scene.

Whether it’s in a city centre or a remote mountain, the medics from GNAAS respond to wherever they are needed in the shortest space of time, with the helicopters never more than a 15 minute flight from the nearest hospital.

GNAAS is charitably funded and therefore they ensure they make the best possible use of the money available to them by acting primarily for life-threatening or potentially life-threatening incidents.

GNAAS are saving lives in our region and given the rural location of our Cumbrian economy we couldn’t think of a better charity to support!
