Charitable Giving

We believe supporting our “Community” a true “VILLAGE” is a priority, the place that has supported us over the years, a place our employees and families call home.

We also believe that our “Community” encompasses our customers and loyal supporters, on special occasions and milestones we support specific National and International campaigns.

The largest requests we receive are for gift baskets for local charitable events and occasions, for these our priorities are:

  • Our gift giving budget is firstly prioritised for ‘Local’, meaning our immediate community, not for profit, charitable organisations and causes which support children or youth.
  • We support local religious organisations and churches.
  • We support local seniors organisations.
  • We maintain our emphasis on groups and organisations not individual sponsorships to ensure that our limited funds assist the greatest number of individuals.
