We like to do our helping bit
"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."
Ours and their Contribution
Our payment card provider was carefully selected by us. With every transaction a contribution is made (by the provider) to Bridge2Aid, an NGO that provides dental care, education and training in developing countries.
Help us decide which charities to support...
By filling out our own survey (in the patient’s lounge) you will be able to introduce a cork chip in the ballot box of your selected charity. At the end of each financial year, our pot gets split according to percentages by three charities (so all benefit).
In partnership with Aardman Animations who generously allow the charity to use the multi-Academy Award® winning characters Wallace & Gromit to spearhead our work, The Grand Appeal fundraises for life-saving equipment and ground-breaking medical facilities as well as providing accommodation, and support for sick children and their families in Bristol Children’s Hospital.
MMF specifically focuses on the research and conservation of threatened marine megafauna species. ‘Marine Megafauna’ are large marine species such as sharks, rays, marine mammals and turtles. These animals are key components of marine ecosystems but, as they are long-lived and have low reproductive rates, their populations are usually the first to be reduced by human pressures. Fortunately, they are also amongst the most charismatic animals on the planet and engender a high degree of public interest in their biology and conservation, making them useful ambassadors for the whole marine environment.
Sustainable beekeeping, determined by the essential needs of the Bee
We aim to be a key contributor in developing a new direction in apiculture, bringing together the essential wildness of the bee with the culture of man: apiculture. Rather than exploiting the bee for one-sided commercial gain, we need urgently to recreate a deep respect and cooperation both with the bees and all of nature for our mutual benefit
Our Annual Gifts
The National Trust
We’re a charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything we do. We look after special places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland forever, for everyone.
