You helped Make a Million!

22 May 2019

In the past couple of weeks, the total figure donated by you to charities via our Payroll Giving Scheme has exceeded £1million!

Group celebrating making a million with a giant cheque

Donations via Payroll Giving go to the many amazing causes chosen by you with the full tax relief going to the charities concerned, boosting the amount and the impact of the money. Giving this way helps charities receive regular financial support and helps smaller charities in particular, as many do not have the resource to claim back Gift Aid.

The top five charities being supported by university staff are Oxfam, Shelter, Save the Children, CRUK and NSPCC but there are many small local and international charities benefitting from your kindness and generosity. 

Karen Heaton, Director of Human Resources said that, “This is a worthwhile and successful initiative as shown by the generous giving of our staff to deserved causes. A fantastic achievement!“

Karen Heaton, Professor James Thompson (Vice President for Social Responsibility) and Dr Julian Skyrme (Director of Social Responsibility) gathered with a number of colleagues across the University who donate via Payroll Giving to celebrate this fantastic milestone.
