Community activities

Redcentric and our staff understand the value of having a positive effect in the community.

Within this section you can find information on some of the organisations with which Redcentric is involved in activities ranging from sponsorship, donations to charity auctions and raising awareness. The majority of these organisations have been personally suggested our staff members at Redcentric.

Additionally, many staff at Redcentric also take part in personal activities to raise money for their personal charities by doing activities such as sponsored marathons and bike rides.

At Redcentric we actively encourage all employees to raise funds for their chosen charities. All employees are contractually entitled to receive one day of paid leave per year to volunteer or support a charitable organisation.

Throughout the year Redcentric and its employees take part in numerous charity and fundraising events; below are organisations that Redcentric or its staff have chosen to support.

Redcentric does the Yorkshire Three Peaks

In June 2023, over 35 colleagues took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, raising over £14,000 for the charity. The gruelling 24 mile walk with over 5,000ft of ascent was a big challenge for all, but a great day was had and it was also an opportunity to network amongst teams as people came together from around the business. We hope to continue this event on an annual basis as it was such a success!
