He said:
“Being a responsible business is a reflection of the culture and values of the people within it, so I’d like to thank the team for all its efforts. But of course it doesn’t stop here; our commitment to improving the environment and local community, supporting staff and dedication to philanthropy is ongoing.”
B P Collins is involved in a range of CSR initiatives including:
- Supporting local charities and community groups through Heart of Bucks. Each staff member is given a say on who the firm should give donations to every year.
- Supporting young people through the sponsorship of Beaconsfield High School, local youth sports teams and by being trustees of Bucks SportsAid.
