At Armstrong Watson our approach to charitable donations through our Corporate Social Responsibility policy has always been to support national, regional and local charities based on our employees and clients experiences and recommendations. Whilst other businesses choose the adoption of one corporate charity each year and a rotation to similar larger charities on-going, we continue to be more supportive of many local and grass root initiatives.
We do this through our Charity of the Month award. Our people are invited to nominate any charity they wish, whether large or small, national or local. Charities can be nominated 24/7 by any employee. Each month, the nominated charities are reviewed and one is selected for the cash donation.
The charity was nominated by Martin Irving (Carlisle) whose cousin was born with the condition. Martin commented that “Cystic Fibrosis is perhaps one of the lesser known illnesses, caused when a copy of a specific faulty gene (one from each parent) is inherited by the child. Cystic Fibrosis causes the body to create a thick mucus which affects the lungs and digestive system; there is currently no cure. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is committed to funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones. I ran in the Great Cumbrian Run on 2 October with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as one of my chosen charities"
