our commitment to the community
Breakthrough Breast Cancer
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is a charity close to our hearts, with the disease affecting 41,000 women each year. As well as funding vital research into both treatment and prevention at its dedicated research centre, Breakthrough is also committed to raising awareness of the illness.
In 2008, we raised £20,530 for the charity. This year we pledge our continuing support to raise even more to help combat this devastating disease.
Give As You Earn
Give As You Earn is a simple, efficient and flexible scheme, which allows Arcadia employees to donate to any charity of their choice by a direct deduction from their wage. All donations given in this way are tax-free so the charity receives the donation and the tax you would have paid on the amount.
Presently 70% of the UK’s population gives to charity, but over £900 million per year is being lost by charities, as they are not receiving the tax on these donations. Through the Give As You Earn scheme, the donation is worth at least 28% more to their chosen cause.
