The Rank Group partnership has continued to go from strength to strength and, so far, has raised more than £500,000 to support carers through a small grants programme. As well as raising money to support carers, employees have given their own time to help their local carers’ services through volunteering. They’ve already donated more than 2,000 hours, doing everything from gardening, to hosting pamper days and tea parties for carers, as well as helping with things like baking for carers events, mentoring and providing HR support.
