The Veitchi Group was incorporated as a limited company on 20th March 1917. The Group would like to celebrate this with a year of charitable activity involving all of our staff, partners and everyone else who has a generous spirit and would like to join us!

We have 20+ fundraising activities scheduled through the year and 17 supported charities that were suggested by our employees. We will be gathering funds through the year and finalise the campaign on the 22nd of December, during the Veitchi Group Centenary Auction.

Events organized by individual Veitchi Group Companies and their branches

In addition to the organized events noted above it is hoped that individual employees/branches will be motivated to get involved in any way they can. Below you can see listed activities that have already been successful in raising funds. If any employee wishes to do their own fundraising event such as a sponsored walk etc. that would be encouraged by the company who would happily pay half of the event entry fee .

GAYE Scheme

Give As You Earn scheme or GAYE is a tax-effective way to get money to charity. The Veitchi group have operated the GAYE fund since 2001. Employees contribute monthly from their salary and the company matches those contributions. Since 2001, the company has donated over £185 000 to various charity organizations.
