In the today's world it is no longer enough for a business to just offer a good product or service. We recognise that businesses also have a responsibility to help the wider community and the environment where possible. This is something we take seriously and our staff, along with our colleagues at Begbies Traynor have taken part in many initiatives to help others and raise vital funds for those in need of help or support.
Supporting Grassroots football
Red Flag Alert was approached by a local junior football club to see if we could help provide some much-needed funds via shirt sponsorship. Football is something many of us at Red Flag are passionate about, so having the opportunity to help young people to play football and keep healthy was something we simply couldn’t pass up. Grassroots football is hugely underfunded, so we were delighted to help out in any way we could.
Each year we support a specific charity and participate in various activities to raise funds for them. In 2017 our nominated charity is Alzheimer’s Society and, in May, members of our team are taking part in the Manchester Half Marathon in support of them.
In 2016 we raised over £3,500 for our nominated charities via the Great Manchester 10k run and we're confident we will eclipse that figure in 2017.
Previous charities we have supported include:
- Help the Heroes
- The Christie
- British Heart Foundation
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Manchester Royal Children’s Hospital
- Wood Street Mission – Manchester based charity helping children living in poverty
As well as the runs we help raise funds via 'mufti' days and a Christmas jumper day where contestants pay to take part with the winner taking home a prize.
In December 2016 we also participated in Manchester Radio Station, Key 103’s, Mission Kids, which aimed to provide Christmas presents to children unlikely to receive anything on Christmas morning. Staff were asked to buy an extra Christmas present whilst out shopping and leave it under the company Tree. All in all the Mission kids initiative helped 61,874 children have a present to open and have a happier Christmas.
We have many plans for 2017. Come back to this page regularly for details or keep an eye on our news feed.
