There are many ways you can get involved:

There are lots of ways to help - from placing collection boxes in your stores to asking customers to consider adding a £1 to their bill. Please get in touch if you want to find out more.
  • Sponsor a project – there are opportunities to work in partnership with us to develop and fund projects that deliver on our promise to build a better future for the city.
