We donate as a company to 5 main charities and would love for you to do the same.
We’ve included some details here about the charities we support and links to their websites.
WaterAid and its partners use practical solutions to provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people. We also seek to influence policy at national and international levels.
Sheffield Hospitals Charity raises funds to support research to help increase understanding of kidney disease and improve the quality and length of life for patients, by providing quicker diagnosis and better treatment.
Best known as the world’s leading independent conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how the health and security of people, wildlife and the environment are all interlinked.
That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the urgent threat of climate change (with our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and promoting sustainable use of resources by helping to change the way we live.
There are six living sub-species of tiger; the Amur (Siberian), Bengal (Indian), Indo-Chinese, Malayan, Sumatran and South China.Three other sub-species, the Bali, Caspian and Javan, are now extinct.
Location:From India to south-eastern China and from the Russian Far East to Sumatra, Indonesia
Habitat:Wide ranging – from evergreen and monsoon forests, to mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands, and mangrove swamps
Wild population: As few as 3,200
The threats to tigers:
- Poaching for skins and body parts used in traditional Asian medicines
- In some areas, climate change also puts pressure on the tiger’s environment. Gradually, tigers are being forced into small, scattered islands of remaining habitat, where they are more vulnerable to events such as fire.
- Habitat loss due to farming, forest clearance for the timber trade and human development
- Decline in natural prey numbers
- Conflict with humans
How your adoption can help:
- £60 (or £5 a month) will restore one hectare of grassland to increase numbers of tiger prey in Nepal’s Terai Arc
- £100 (or £8.50 a month) will pay for a comprehensive medical kit for staff in Dudhwa National Park in India
- £200 (or £16 a month) will pay for the development of a Bio-Gas plant in a local Himalayan community. Bio-gas plants produce energy from rotting waste, reducing the need for the local people to cut down trees and therefore helping to maintain the tigers habitat.
This incredible animal has been known to leap as far as 15 metres and can travel up to 40 km in a single night.
Location: Kangchenjunga Conservation Area (KCA), Nepal
Habitat: Snow leopards prefer steep terrain, broken by cliffs, rocky outcrops and ravines. They live at high altitudes, usually at elevations of 3,000-4,500 metres, although they occasionally go above 5,500 metres in the Himalayas.
Wild population: As few as 4,000 are thought to remain in the wild.
The threats to snow leopards
- Poaching, for their bones and precious fur
- Loss of their natural prey due to hunting
- Loss and damage of habitat due to overgrazing of domestic livestock
- Conflict with people
How your adoption can help:
- £60 (or £5 a month) could pay for 10 torches to help snow leopard monitoring and prevent attacks on livestock (snow leopards are mostly active at night)
- £120 (or £10 a month) could pay for the initial training for a community-based anti-poaching patrol
- £150 (or £12.50 a month) could help train Nepali law enforcement officers, helping them to reduce the illegal cross-border trade in snow leopard skin and bone
