Michelmores in the Community
Not only do we invest in our people: it is important to us to invest in the communities we live in. We have a clear Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme to ensure that we deliver real benefits for the wider communities in which we operate. Our trainees provide valuable support to our CSR programme and can elect themselves to be on our Charity of the Year commitee.
Every year, the Michelmores offices in Exeter, Bristol and London choose a Charity of the Year to support. One of our largest charity events is the annual Michelmores Charity Run which raises approximately £30,000 each year for charitable causes.
We also fundraise for other national charity days such as Comic Relief, Children in Need and more.
To encourage involvement in our local communities, Michelmores gives all employees one paid day off per year to volunteer at a local charitable organisation. This could involve anything from helping to clean up a local beach, painting a local school or gardening at a nearby zoo!
We also encourage our staff to provide their services on a pro bono basis in appropriate circumstances, assisting individuals, volunteer-led associations and charities with a wide range of legal issues. A number of our employees are trustees of charities and governors of schools.
