Supporting local charities

We have always been passionate about supporting our local charities and over the past 20 years have raised over £200,000 for them. To further support charities in our community we have launched our own City Charity Incubator. This is where a small local charity will join us in our offices for 12 months, taking away some of the financial and business pressures they face.

Charity: Mums in Need

This year's Charity Incubators are:
Mums in Need (MIN)

We have supported this amazing charity for a long time so when we became aware they were to be homeless we knew we had to do something, and it is because of them we have launched our City Charity Incubator. Mums in Need aim to support mums to feel more confident and in control of their situation by gaining an understanding of exactly what they can do to help themselves and their children. MIN provide Mums with the life skills needed to overcome fears and find a way through the intimidation, emotional and psychological abuse that horrendously some women face daily.

MIN understand, care, and being experts in their field, are able to provide the support women need at this vulnerable time. The MIN team offer a tailored service to individual women, providing them with a community of fellow-survivors, experienced professionals and the support to rebuild their lives.

City aims to nurture the chosen charity and enable them to be in a greater position to do what they do best, supporting the community, with less pressure and burden than before the incubation period.

Donating citygrab delivery fees

The launch of City’s delivery app ‘citygrab’ provided a fantastic opportunity to raise funds for local charities, by donating weekend delivery fees. After raising £17,087.86 for the NHS, we dedicated each weekend throughout May 2020 to a local charity, to support them during the COVID-19 pandemic. In total, our wonderful customers raised £40,096.85 which we donated to Weston Park Cancer Charity, Cash for Kids, Ashgate Hospice, Chesterfield Royal Charity, St Luke’s Hospice and The Children’s Hospital Charity.
