Our members and staff have organised several Charity Committee events across all our spaces to support a local charity of their choice. From film screenings and panel discussions, comedy evenings, Bingo nights, or pub quizzes, the diversity of events is the result of the work and creativity of each committee. The charity committees have raised a total of £11,322 and the charities they’ve supported so far are: Rescue, Hand Up Foundation, Crisis, Reach Out UK, Sport in Mind, Future Dreams, Key 4 Life, Bread Winners, We Love MCR, Hackney Winter Shelter, and SHP.
In 2021, we chose to start donating £5 for every member who joins Work.Life. After joining, our members are asked to select from one of four charities to receive their donation. We carefully select two charities in line with our company values to support for the year. We also select an additional two charities twice yearly; one close to a member’s heart (the Work.Life community pick) and the other to do with recent events. In 2021 we donated £7,940 to these charities: Gendered Intelligence, My Shining Star, NHS Charities Together, The Sadie Bristow Foundation, Global Action Plan and Mental Health Foundation.
In 2022, our chosen charities are:
