Charity Matters

We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously and we’re making a commitment to drive consistent, positive change. We strongly believe in giving something back by contributing to the community, proudly supporting many local and national charities both financially and with our time. Through a range of fundraising activities and other wider initiatives we aim to make a difference.

Rock Ferry Primary Parade

We donated two flags for the schools ‘celebrating our differences’ parade, in conjunction with Thumbs Up Education Programme, the culmination of work throughout the year helping children learn about different faiths, family make-ups and identity. The children and staff came to school either dressed in or carrying something they felt represented them and the vibrancy of the colours in the playground was matched by the enthusiasm of all those who took part.

It’s in the bag!

We collected more than 15 full bags of rubbish on a litter pick at Eastham Woods and Leverhulme sports fields. Staff together with their families collected amongst other things old fireworks, plastic bags and empty drink cans. Hopefully, we made a small contribution to improve the environment on our doorstep, as well as protecting local wildlife, like hedgehogs and swans often injured by the rubbish people leave behind.

Tiny Steps Proudly Presents
We were happy to help our friends at Tiny Steps promote their Memorial Rave On fundraiser with a colourful roadside banner and some printed flyers. Find out more about Tiny Steps on our Staff Heroes page.
Funny is power
We were all keen to do our bit for Comic Relief this red nose day and by wearing something red to the office on own clothes day, with everyone working from home joining in, we raised over £80 for this great cause.
Supporting youth football
We were proud to sponsor the U16 Girls Youth Cup Final at the Lancashire FA County Ground in Leyland, Burnley FC v’s Fleetwood Town FC. After a tightly fought game, Fleetwood emerged victorious winning 3-1.
Kilimanjaro challenge
When we heard that Clare from Kids Planet Day Nurseries was part of a team climbing the highest peak in Africa to raise funds for the Warrington Youth Zone, we were pleased to donate T-shirts, jackets and raincoats.

Covid-19 Stories

As lockdown took us by surprise, PPE was in very short supply. When we were instructed to work from home, we rounded up all of our FFP2 masks, goggles and safety glasses and dropped them off to the front line workers at Arrowe Park Hospital.

Designated a quarantine site during the pandemic, this flagship hospital on the Wirral has been at the forefront of the fight against the virus.

As coronavirus sweeps the globe, police forces and health workers are on the front line, dealing with even more demand at a time when resources are already stretched. We donated face masks and safety goggles to Team 5 Immediate Response Officers at Burnley Police Station who were extremely pleased to receive them.

“Thank you for the kind donation of face masks and glasses that we so desperately need. We are using PPE equipment at an alarming rate, so to receive PPE of this quality is very much appreciated.”

We donated a care package to the team at Willowbrook Hospice in St Helens, kindly delivered by none other than Johnny Vegas, a keen supporter of the hospice and a cause dear to his heart. We’re glad the team will benefit from the hand sanitiser, PPE and drinking water as they continue their incredible work.

“Thank you Heatons for your kind donation, everyone here is extremely grateful and very happy to see it safely delivered.”

£15,000 Covid Care Package Giveaway

The coronavirus has proved difficult for all of us but especially so for many charitable organisations struggling with financial difficulties. With this in mind, we launched an initiative to give something back to our local community and help charities and good causes to continue the fight against the covid-19.

We put together 10 care packages made up from our Covid-combatting products, including gloves, masks, aprons, hand sanitiser and wipes, each worth over £1,000. Via social media we invited people to nominate organisations they thought would benefit and were blown away by the response. It was too difficult to choose just 10 from all the brilliant causes put forward, so we added another 10 smaller care packages worth £500 each to be able to help as many charities as we could. In these uncertain times, small acts of kindness make a huge difference and we were delighted our deliveries helped raise a smile and support our local community.

Making A Difference

St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice provides care and support for local people affected by life-threatening illness.

All the staff and nurses do a wonderful job and we were glad to to be able to donate some key essentials to show our appreciation for the amazing work they do.

By joining forces with other local companies Railex and Brysdales, we were able to show our support for NHS staff by donating PPE Vests to Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

We personalised the vests in our in-house embellishment suite to ensure Safety Officers at the Trust are easily recognisable on-site and hope they will be of use for years to come.

We were pleased to supply a range of items including colouring pencils and paints, sketchbooks and scissors towards craft boxes for vulnerable children in Eden, Cumbria.

The project was developed by a teacher who is also a town councillor and supported by Penrith Town Council, as well as Barnardo’s. It ensured that children can work on activities which help maintain their mental well-being and allow them to express their creativity, fully engaging with home learning in these challenging times.

We supported the Paul Lavelle Foundation by donating branded pencils for their schools project.

The charity goes into schools to educate children about domestic abuse and the children use their pencils to write a comment on what they’ve learnt and keep the pencil as a thank you. We’re delighted to be helping to educate the youth of today to be safer in the future.

Cruse Bereavement Care offers support and counselling to children, young people and adults when someone dies.

It’s a charity close to our hearts and and we donate annually to this important cause.

We donated £300 to Leasowe Primary School’s Christmas Panto, Robin Hood, including some unexpected audience participation from Danny Burns, their account manager.

Making A Difference

We donated £250 worth of educational supplies to Rock Ferry Primary School in support of The Thumbs Up Education Programme and the amazing work they do.

Over £100 raised on Elf Day in aid of Alzheimer’s Society and on Christmas Jumper Day we all did our bit in a Christmas knit in support of Save The Children.

We raised over £280 for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
