Whilst work is important, at simonpointer.com we also want to do our bit for Society, and the two managing directors believe that there is a bigger picture of the world to consider and many people far less fortunate than those of us that have the ability to work and contribute.
So, for every recruitment booking you place with us we will donate 2% of the total fee to one of our selected charities that are close to our hearts.
Most of us know at least one person who has been affected or touched by cancer. It has been in our families and so is one of those charities that is and always will be top of our list.
1 in 10 people now develop Alzheimer’s and there is no cure for this very cruel disease. The body and mind start to shut down, sometimes over a very long period of time. We have both seen first hand the battle with this terrible illness and had to stand by to watch the harrowing way it destroys people and families. This charity will always be so close to our hearts.
Just over 10 years ago Hilary ran the London Marathon to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. She ran it for George the son of a great friend who’s child was diagnosed with CF as a baby. I knew very little about the illness prior to knowing George but it is a serious condition that affects the lungs and digestive system with no current cure. Life expectancy is greatly reduced for sufferers, but through research, charity, and technology this is getting better, and we hope our contribution helps continue this trend.
