Charity begins at home for Cerberus

We all know that Christmas is a time for giving so it seemed the perfect time to launch Cerberus Group's new charity programme, as Group Director Sarah Roscoe explains.

"Just before the festive break, the management team unveiled their plans for additional charitable giving by the Group. They gave 17 team members £1,000 each to donate to a charity of their choice.

As you might expect, this has created quite a buzz in the office as people discuss who they want to give the money to and why. Charitable giving is such a personal thing and there aren't many of us who'd get the chance to donate such a large amount in one go like this so we're all really thrilled to be able to make a difference in this way".

Charities receiving the £1,000 donation range from the Bluebell Children's Hospice in Sheffield, Women's Aid, to a charity using the power of music to help disadvantaged young people in the Manchester area and Salford Lads Club.

These donations mark the start of a commitment by the Cerberus Group to donate up to £50,000 to good causes as chosen by members of staff throughout 2012.
