Every twelve months, the UNW Committee and Charity Group consult the firm to nominate and vote for a small, local independent charity to ensure any money generated delivers maximum social impact.
Based in the city centre of Newcastle, UNW is at the very heart of the community and aims to contribute towards it in a wide variety of ways; to benefit not only the organisations themselves, but also internally for the personal development of colleagues.
In addition to colleagues being actively encouraged to partake in a wide variety of fundraising and voluntary opportunities close to their heart, we also have a nominated charity of the year for which funds are raised through activities, challenges and events.
Previous beneficiaries include Charlie Bear for Cancer Appeal, Caring Hands and Newcastle Women’s Aid, MS Research and Relief Fund (MSRRF) and Maggie’s Newcastle.
Bright Red, a dedicated blood cancer support charity, was chosen as Charity of the Year for 2023/2024.
