Our charity1978 marked the start of our Charitable Trust and since then, Europa Worldwide Group has shown its support to several community initiatives and good causes. Since 2019 alone, Europa’s staff have raised a total of £23k and supported more than 25 UK charities! We are incredibly proud that every year Europa’s staff, suppliers and friends back community initiatives and causes that are important to them. Fundraising brings people together and our initiatives is a great way of supporting our staff whilst helping charities close to our hearts.
Supporting the British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal
Earlier this year the Europa team launched their appeal to support the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
After witnessing the events unfold in Ukraine, we knew immediately we wanted to do something to help. The work that the British Red Cross is currently doing to provide critical care to those in Ukraine and its bordering countries is incredible. To show our support, we plan to raise as much money as possible, but we need your help.
We want to thank everyone across the business who got involved, donated and helped raise an amazing £8,696.49.
Through our Europa 50:50 match-funding scheme, we have matched donations making our grand total £17,392.98.
Our community support
We’re passionate about helping our local communities. Charity work is incredibly important to us and we’re keen to endorse causes close to the hearts of our employees. Across our network we get involved with popular charity days including Make May Purple for the Stroke Association, Wear Red for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund and Wear a Hat Day for Brain Tumour Research.
We also participate in Red Rose Day for Comic Relief, Dressed by the Kids for Oxfam, Superheroes for Diabetes UK and Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children. As well as hosting internal events for awareness events such as Mental Health Awareness Week for The Mental Heath Foundation.
As well as supporting our staff through our 50:50 scheme, we also have a team of Charity Champions based across the business who are leading the way and supporting vital charities across the UK.
Europa 50:50 scheme
To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we launched our match-funding programme called 50:50 which since 2019, has raised over £23k and supported more than 25 UK charities chosen by our team. Each member of our team has the chance to fundraise for a charity of their choice with us matching the funds raised up to the value of £500 per person. Since its launch, our staff have taken part in gruelling, fun and inspirational challenges – walking, running, swimming and baking their way to raise money!
