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

Our Pallet Pledge scheme is now in its sixth year, which sees the business make 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.

The Big Cat Sanctuary: Q3 Pallet Pledge 2018

Our nominated worthy cause for July to September is the Big Cat Sanctuary, nominated by our Director, Paul Denyer.

The Big Cat Sanctuary is set in the heart of the countryside at Smarden in Kent. The peace and tranquillity of the site provides a sanctuary for the successful breeding of endangered cats both large and small within the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme. The charity recently featured in a BBC documentary “Big Cats About The House”.

Paul’s daughter is doing some voluntary work at the sanctuary over the summer as part of her Duke of Edinburgh award.

We are extremely pleased to support this local charity and make a donation through out Pallet Pledge Scheme towards the fantastic work that they do.
