Corporate Social Responsibility
At Great Annual Savings, our Corporate Social Responsibility mission is clear: To make a significant difference to the local community. Our aim to make a positive impact to people by delivering economic and social benefits wherever we can.
As part of our CSR initiative, we support four local charities, as well as a number of secondary charities who we fundraise for on an ad-hoc basis. Staff not only donate money to each cause, they also receive a paid day out of work to volunteer time to one of our chosen partners.
Our Chosen Charities
