Corporate Social Responsibility
Arc Group takes its social responsibilities seriously; we believe in putting something back into the communities in which we work. Our staff and operatives also have their own causes that they support, through fund-raising and volunteering, and we are happy to help them.
One of those causes is football.
When one of our Contracts Managers told Tony Mason, Group MD, that the team his grandson plays for, Maidstone United, was looking for a new kit sponsor, we were happy to help. They were already doing well but, since donning their Arc kit, haven’t lost a game since the deal and even won the Express Cabs Maidstone Primary League Division Two – incidentally, on the same day that Manchester City were crowned Premier champions and, just like City, well ahead of the last game of the season.
Similarly, one of our Site Manager’s son plays for Ridgeway Rovers in the Echo League, U-14s, and they needed a new kit sponsor. Once again, Tony was happy to help out. The team even reached the Echo League Cup final but were beaten 2-1 despite a valiant effort.
As well as donating to causes, we like to be active participants, which is why a group of intrepid Arc Group adventurers headed North of the Border to raise money for The Linda Trimble Foundation, a small charity that specialises in eating disorders, providing help and advice for sufferers and their families.
Anorexia is a pernicious condition that affects both sexes and all ages – too often, it is portrayed as something that only affects teenage girls wanting to look like some implausibly thin model, the implication being that it is only a phase and that they’ll grow out of it, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
In February 2018, the team embarked on an arduous three-day hillwalking adventure taking in the Isle of Skye, including The Old Man of Storr, before heading back via Ben Vrackie on the edge of Pitlochry.
In total, the team raised £12,280 which will allow the charity to help more victims and their families.
