Charity Partner

Our Charity Partner

We believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an essential part of any business who wants to be part of the community – and at G3 we’ve actively encouraged our team to join in.

For almost 10 years we’ve worked closely with our chosen charity partner – the Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract – to take part in fundraising activities whilst also donating portions of our profits too!

G3 have donated

over £150,000

to the Prince of Wales Hospice since 2010!

Sponsor a Nurse Campaign

In 2018…

We donated a whopping £40,000 to ‘sponsor a nurse’ within the hospice. This sum equates to the actual costs involved with an individual nurse employed by the charity. It costs over £3 million a year to keep the Hospice open. They only receive around 25% of this from the NHS, leaving the rest to be fundraised from people and companies in the local area.

We also worked with the hospice to develop their ‘Club 5’ business community, with Matt Dale being one of the founding members. They now have regular meet-ups and like-minded businesses collaborate with each other whilst benefiting the hospice.

In 2019…

We did it again! This time we released the news on ‘International Nurses Day’ and held a party at the hospice for the nurses to have a short break from their day and enjoy some cakes and treats.

We have also taken part in a number of events throughout the year for the hospice, including entering a team in their ‘it’s a Knockout’ tournament!

We have so far raised over £1,500 in 2019 for the ’30 in 30′ challenge!

We also took part in numerous fundraising campaigns, as individuals and as a G3 team, to raise additional funds. Including Director Matt Dale completing a series of ultra-marathons and marathons!

In 2019, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hospice, 30 local businesses where challenged to raise £1,000 each to built a pot of £30,000 for their ’30 in 30′ campaign.

We took on that challenge and smashed it! Some of the events G3 took part in include; a nurses day at the hospice, staff ‘bring a bag’ to work day (resulting in 30 bags of clothes for their stores) and a team taking on the challenge of ‘it’s a knockout’ (view video to see the fun!)
