The Gift of Giving

The Veitchi Group has always had a strong charitable ethos and set its landmark Give as You Earn Scheme in 2001 which had donated over £250,000 to charitable causes since its inception.

We now have an active Charity and Social Committee which arranges events throughout the year to raise money for our staff nominated charities and other worthy causes.

Community Involvement

Here at Veitchi we feel that it is important to give back to the communities in which we operate. We Look for local projects to support which will add value to the lives of the people who live locally to our business.

It’s what we call Veitchi Value, and it has a positive effect not just on our business but on local communities, the wider society and the environment.

Here are some projects we have been lucky enough to be involved in.

Our Centenary Year

2017 saw the Veitchi Group celebrate 100 Years,. To celebrate this landmark we dedicated the entire year to charitable giving raising over £33,000 for 17 charities picked by our staff and donating 125 food boxes to local foodbanks and contributing 40 pints of blood in our local communities.

This will continue as there is no greater gift than the gift of giving and we have been privileged to deal with some wonderful and inspiring people on this journey.
