We are enthusiastic about engaging with charities and local community projects to raise funds and make a positive difference. Community involvement is about more than just giving money. We actively demonstrate our commitment to local projects and charities through financial contributions and also in other ways in which we are able to lend our support.

Firmin Pallet Pledge Scheme

Through our Pallet Pledge Scheme, the business makes quarterly charitable donations that are linked to the success of our overnight palletised distribution business.

For every pallet that we input into our network we make a 10p donation to a chosen charity. To keep the scheme personal and ensure we lend our support to a wide variety of worthy causes, we ask our staff and clients to nominate charities that are close to their hearts. A good cause is then selected each quarter.

Book Pledge Donation

In April we donated £320 to purchase eight book bundles for the Primary School Book Pledge scheme.

So far, the books have been donated to Bysing Wood Primary School and St Mary’s School in Faversham.

We are delighted to have supported this worthy cause to encourage children to enjoy reading.
