The most enjoyable aspect of running a family business, is being able to support the local community and as a company, we are proud to have partnered with two fantastic Reading-based charities
Warm clothes for refugees
We provided warm clothes for refugees who have been housed temporarily in London and Berkshire. Most of them are living in extreme poverty, with no access to public funds and unable to work yet.
Shoes for homeless children
Working with another charity in London, we provided funding so 200 children could visit Clarks and have their feet properly measured for the first time, and walk away in comfy shoes. The children all live in temporary accommodation and are in extreme poverty, so this made a massive difference to them.
Christmas gifts for women and children living in refuges
We provided Christmas presents for dozens of women and children who had to stay in women’s refuges during the Christmas period, after fleeing domestic violence. Wherever possible, we provided gifts that they had specifically asked for.
