Delivering social value to our clients and their residents is central to our culture. In 2018 R. Benson donated over £15,000 to good causes including Alzheimer’s Society, Kids Cancer Charity, Minerva House Domestic Violence Refuge and many Junior Sports teams.
We have set an ambitious target of raising £20,000 for good causes in 2019 and involving as many of our staff as possible. Alongside our community and project activities our team have committed to getting fit this year. They have signed up for the following challenges:
- Tough Mudder
- Half Marathon
- 50km Chiltern Walk
We will also be participating in volunteer days and community events throughout the year.
Our chosen charities for 2019 are:
