At The Wilkes Partnership we care about giving something back to the community.
We have an active CSR Team with the Champions Network providing a focal point for CSR activities from our various office locations. We are also a supporter of Business in the Community (BITC).
In early 2022, we announced that we would be continuing to support Alzheimer’s Research UK for a further year.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity, which is dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure.
The Wilkes Partnership’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Team have organised a series of fundraising activities and events that will run throughout the year to help raise awareness and donations to Alzheimer’s Research UK and assist other local causes.
Charity events this year include a charity bike ride, a Wilkes bake off, afternoon tea, pumpkin carving, a team office race where teams from the Solihull and Birmingham office are pitched against one another to see who can walk to each other’s offices the fastest, Christmas Jumper Day and taking part in the Giving Tree appeal.
Ann-Marie Aston, Partner and Head of the CSR Team comments: “At The Wilkes Partnership, we are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK again this year. The work that the charity do is vital to those who are affected by the disease. Our team strive to provide exciting and fun events for the team, all whilst raising money for worthy causes.
“We at Wilkes take great pride in the important work we do for charity and support all of the fundraising events that we hold.
“Last year we were able to raise over £1,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK across our offices which is a fantastic achievement and hope to raise even more this year.”
