With this in mind, SOLOS is proud to support the following causes through donations and fundraising:
This year we are encouraging our staff and temporary workforce to donate and support the following:
The Trussell Trust is a charitable organisation which aims to empower local communities and combat poverty. It is estimated that around 3 million people in the UK alone live below the poverty line. With its nationwide network of Trussell Trust foodbanks, the organisation aims to provide emergency food and support to the people who need it most. Last year, the foodbanks fed over 900,000 people.
We believe that the practical help, compassion and kindness the Trust provides to ‘the people who society forgets’ is invaluable, which is why SOLOS decided to get behind this worthwhile cause.
Babbington Dog Rescue was set up back in 1993 to help abandoned and stray dogs to find new homes with loving families. To date, the family-run business has managed to find happy homes for nearly 10,000 dogs. At its centre in Nottingham, the organisation has a number of purpose-built kennels, as well as vet-trained, fully qualified staff who really care about the animals they look after.
What we at SOLOS admire most about the team at Babbington Dog Rescue is their strict non-destruction policy, meaning that everything possible is done to re-home all dogs and give them a second chance at a happy life.
Some of the staff will be participating in a sponsored sleep over in the reputedly haunted caves below one of the oldest public houses in the UK in 2014 to raise funds for the rescue dogs.
