First Choice Recruitment Champions Charitable Giving
First Choice Recruitment, the trusted experts offering a personal approach for clients and candidates throughout the Wakefield district, has renewed its sponsorship of Denby Grange Colliery Athletics Club for the 5th year.
Having contributed more than £50k to worthy causes and provided hundreds of hours of in kind support since it launched, the agency is using its 25th anniversary year to champion charitable giving and to encourage other organisations across the Wakefield district to do the same.
Managing Partner of First Choice Recruitment, Anne, comments: “Denby Grange Colliery Athletic Club is just one of the community-based organisations we support. We also sponsor the Theatre Royal Wakefield and make regular donations to the Hospice. Charitable giving has always been a part of our business model and knowing that we are having a positive social impact is what makes it all worthwhile.
“We would like to encourage other organisations that are based across the District to think about the charities that they would like to support. As austerity measures continue, it has never been more important for businesses to support initiatives that deliver amazing programmes of activity that can make a life changing difference to residents in our community.”
As well as regular donations, Andy Turner, Managing Partner at the agency, is a founding member of WACCL and the Children of Achievement Awards, which has raised more than £100k in the last five years, a member of the Theatre Royal Gala Dinner and Performance committee and a founding member of the Wakefield Works initiative.
First Choice Recruitment launched in 1993 and has since become one of the largest independent agencies in West Yorkshire. It employs nine people and works with some of the leading businesses based in the Wakefield district. For more information about First Choice Recruitment, please visit www.firstchoice-uk.com.
