Our Local Contribution

As a team working every day with people in the Harrogate, Knaresborough, Thirsk and Settle communities, we have a strong sense of our social responsibility.

We are delighted to contribute positively to local charities and we work in partnership with the voluntary sector. We are committed to maintaining effective relationships with our local communities and aim to promote a positive partnership.

Charities and voluntary organisations we support:

Saint Michael’s

This Harrogate-based hospice is a charity close to our hearts due to our shared caring ethos and the important role it plays in providing support to people affected by terminal illness within the wider Harrogate community.

We are members of the Saint Michael’s 500 club for small and medium-sized businesses, giving £600 each year to support the charity’s aim of offering more care to more people.

Springboard

Springboard is the day service offered by the Harrogate Homeless Project to give people in the area a safe place to recuperate, refuel and recharge.

We regularly support the service with fundraising activities, and match any funds raised up to £100 by our employees.

In 2015 we matched over £900 of our employees’ fundraising efforts.

Canine Partners

Our chosen charity for 2019 is Canine Partners, an organisation that trains assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. We will be doing a series of fundraising events throughout the year so keep an eye on our news page to see what we’re up to!

Pioneer Projects

In Settle, we work in partnership with Pioneer Projects, a community-based arts and health charity, to support their social and creative activities for people living with dementia. 

Pannal Sports Junior Football Club

This registered charity is over 50 years old and has more than 400 players and 22 squads from Under 5s to Under 18s. Focused on safety and fun, the club teaches football skills as well as respect.

The club has a number of coaches who follow football development strategies laid down by the FA.

We are delighted to have sponsored the latest team kit for Pannal Sports JFC.

Leeds Cares

Leeds Cares is a charity that works with Leeds Teaching Hospitals to ensure the best possible care and wellbeing across Yorkshire and beyond. With support from fundraising and donations, the charity aims to provide new healthcare services, equipment and staff, and to support healthcare research, innovation, education and training.

Continued Care is delighted to support the charity, and our director Samantha Harrison has undertaken a number of fundraising activities in aid of Leeds Cares, including completing a 52-mile Sportive as part of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Harrogate.
