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.
Heart of Kent Hospice: Q1 Pallet Pledge 2021
Our nominated charity for January to March is the Heart of Kent Hospice, nominated by Paul Denyer.
The Heart of Kent Hospice is a charity that cares for local people at the end of their lives. Every year, they care for over 1,500 patients and their families in their own homes, in the community, and in the hospice.
Their care is local, free and is offered to everyone who needs it. They make a real difference by supporting families at the most difficult of times.
We are very pleased to be supporting this worthy cause.
