We are delighted to announce that in May 2023 our Council of Governors awarded a record funding pot of £176,500 to Provide Community’s 2023 charitable giving initiative.

Every year, colleagues across our organisation are invited to nominate causes close to their hearts for donations. Our team of Governors then reviews nominations and selects the worthiest funding recipients.

In this, our biggest round of colleague-nominated funding, a total of 76 charities and community groups are set to receive donations, including the Essex and Herts Ambulance Service, Families in Focus, Streets2Home, and Maldon Pioneers. Donations will also be made to a range of national charities that support health and wellbeing in the communities we serve including Cancer Research, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and the Children’s Heart Foundation.

Provide Community Chair of Governors, Nicola Yarnall said: “We are delighted to have been able to donate more than £176,000 on behalf of our members in 2023 in line with our ambition to donate £800,000 to charities and local causes in 2023-24. This money will support recipients to continue the fantastic work they do in our communities, supporting those who need them the most.

“This phase of funding is focused on being able to support organisations that are close to our colleagues’ hearts, and it is wonderful to have added another £56,000 to last year’s total.”

Our Vice-Chair of Governors Michael Glassock commented: “Provide Group has seen extensive growth over the last year, and it was good to see nominations coming in from across the organisation in locations from Doncaster to Dorset.

“This £176,500 will support 76 very diverse charities and community groups ranging from disability support and sports to health and animal welfare.”
