Looking forward to another fantastic year of fundraising


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is, in a nutshell, Playdale taking responsibility for our effect on environmental and social well-being. It’s all about ‘giving something back’ and promoting positive social and environmental change.

Our work in this area has two main focal points, ‘ongoing environmental improvements’ and ‘demonstrating support for our community’.

With regards to the latter, we are committed to providing volunteer support to the local community. Playdale supports local causes and initiatives through voluntary efforts of staff. We believe we serve our community better by providing skills and support from our team. Each year Playdale staff members nominate good causes to support for the following year. These are then put to a company-wide staff vote and the top three choices then become our chosen good causes for the rest of the following year.

The good causes that we’re supporting throughout 2019 are:

*St Mary’s Hospice provides specialised supportive and palliative care for people with life-limiting conditions throughout South Cumbria.

*Ulverston Mind, for better mental health – Ulverston Mind supports people concerned about their mental health and works to promote & enhance mental well-being. (Voted in again from 2018)

*Furness Young Carers – a charity which supports young people (5-18 years old) who care for someone at home who is ill, disabled or frail (including mental illness and alcohol or drug abuse). (Voted in again from 2018)

We’re looking forward to lots of successful fundraising and fun throughout the year, so keep an eye on our website and social media platforms for coverage of these!
