Our Community

During 2014 the Group established a charitable events team to drive forward the Group’s charitable giving programme. Throughout the year the team organised a number of successful events, resulting in over £10,000 being raised for charity.

In March the Group’s UK subsidiary Nationwide Platforms, sponsored by one of the Group’s key suppliers, completed a Sport’s Relief cycle challenge in which employees cycled over 1,200 miles and raised £3,700 for charity.

Following the success of Nationwide Platforms pedometer challenge in 2013 the events team co-ordinated a Group wide pedometer challenge in support of the British Heart Foundation. During this month long event 292 employees clocked up a staggering 63,393,605 steps. As well as raising money for the foundation, friendly rivalry encouraged our employees to take more regular exercise resulting in our Gardemann employees in Germany taking the prize for furthest travelled within the month.
The Group also got involved with nationwide charitable events such as Macmillan coffee morning in September 2014 and “Christmas Jumper Day” in December 2014 for Save the Children charity.
