Home About us csr Supporting local communities

Lending a helping hand

We’ve been a corporate partner of Crisis, the homelessness charity, for more than a decade. In this time we’ve donated 100 vans, helping Crisis move vulnerable people in and out of temporary accomodation, as well as transporting supplies and repurposed furniture to be sold in their retail outlets. And it's special to do more where possible. In 2020, we were able to provide an extra three vans and an additional donation of £12,000, which helped to fund a special Crisis Christmas package for 425 people.

Poverty awareness

2021 marked the start of our partnership with anti-poverty charity, the Trussell Trust. In recent years, generous efforts have been made by our teams across the UK to support their local food banks during Christmas and Easter periods with notable donations made in Glasgow, Caterham and Plymouth. Going forward, an annual donation of £20,000 will be made to the charity to help food banks within their network continue to provide emergency support to local people in crisis.

Colleague volunteer programme

To celebrate and recognise all the great community work that our people are currently involved in or have ambitions to do, we've setup our very first colleague volunteer programme. This gives people time to help-out with one of our charity partners or a cause that's important to them personally. Through the programme they can donate a day of their time and energy, covered by CitySprint.

Getting behind a good cause

Our teams are passionate about supporting local causes. Here's just a handful of ways we show we care.

Christmas Jumper Day - supporting Save the Children

Colleagues showed a little Christmas flair to fundraise, with over £200 raised to provide vulnerable children with access to education, healthcare, food and water.

Donations to Stonehouse foodbank

The CitySprint Plymouth team collected over 300 food items to support their local foodbank, right in time for Christmas.

Celebrating inclusion with The Diversity Trust

Diversity & inclusion should be celebrated every day of the year. We support the Diversity Trust campaign against discrimination with a £2,000 donation going towards creating a fairer society for all.

NHS Charities Together

The dedication & commitment from our NHS workers continues to leave us in awe. As a small thank you, we donated £1,000 to NHS Charities Together to support workers when they need it most.
