As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, each year Eton Environmental Group donates money to charities, sports clubs and special causes.

Last year (2018), we donated £8,456.96 – which is the most in our 15-year history.

This includes sponsorship of three youth football clubs, reflecting our support of local grassroots football which many members of our staff are involved with.

Throughout the year, we also held a number of themed fundraising events to raise money for Children with Cancer UK, Macmillan, The Little Princess Trust, Woman V Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Thames Hospice, Help the Homeless, The Passage, Save the Children, Daisy Chain and Children in Need.

In addition, we have regular payments going to Alzheimers UK, Anthony Nolan, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Red Cross.

Eton Director Joanna Shaefer explained: “Since we formed Eton Environmental Group in 2014, we have been keen to support local organisations, charities and good causes in our operating areas.

“ As the business has grown we have been fortunate to increase our fundraising, with staff playing an important part in helping us to choose charities and good causes.

“This could be because their child plays for a junior football team, or they, or someone they know, have benefited from services offered by a charity.

“They throw themselves behind our fundraising efforts and without their support, we wouldn’t be able to contribute as much as we do.

“As a national company operating in the area of health, safety and environment, corporate social responsibility is important to us and supporting our local communities is a big part of this strategy.”
