We want to make a positive impact in all the places we operate.
That’s why every time one of our colleagues raises money for a good cause, Collinson matches it by up to £250. And we know that giving time can be just as valuable as money, so we provide one day of paid leave for those who wish to contribute their time and talents to recognised charities, causes or not-for-profit organisations. In FY22, Collinson employees raised more than £19,000 and donated 235 hours of their time to support the causes they care about.
Community within our company
Our colleagues strengthen communities within Collinson too. We have many different networks and groups with different aims or interests, such as Women in Collinson, Under 30s, LINK and our BAME networks. They’re colleague driven and open to all. Many of these groups have sub-groups, for example, our BAME network also runs a popular book club.
Stories that make us proud
Our colleague Matthew Crowther-Townsend in the UK makes an annual to Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts (to give it its full name!) to take part in volunteer litter picking in front of the Pyramid and Other Stage (at 5am!) in aid of a charity called Kiota. Kiota is a volunteer-run kitchen table charity, working in partnership with Tanzanian young women's rights, health & development NGO, Kiota Women's Health and Development which funds secondary education for some of Tanzania's most marginalised young people.
Collinson Malta employees recently completed a roof garden for women in vulnerable situations working with Dar Hosea and Dare to Be Malta. The Dar Hosea House's new roof garden will provide a calming green safe environment for the women they support to work on themselves and their well-being and benefit from a sense of self-worth, dignity, and fulfilment.
Recent fundraising efforts & volunteering taking place across our global teams include; beach cleans in Hong Kong, women’s refuge support in Malta, foodbank collections in Texas & care home gift donations in Sao Paulo.
