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.

Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide: Q2 Pallet Pledge 2021

Our nominated charity for April to June was Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide. This worthy cause was nominated by our Chairman, Paul Firmin.

The Marden based charity was founded over eight years ago to help people in the poorest and most isolated parts of the world where anaesthesia services are either inadequate or non-existent. The charity has supported the development of a new anaesthetic machine, which is able to function even if the supplies of oxygen and electricity fail. It is used in over 70 countries worldwide and has enabled elective and emergency surgery to be performed in the poorest and most isolated hospitals where this has previously been impossible.

We are pleased to have donated £502.34 to this worthy cause.
