Our Charity Work
Each year Gorvins selects two charities for whom we raise funds through a range of activities. Selecting the right charities to partner with is very much part of our culture at Gorvins and we are proud that each and every member of staff gets behind the cause to raise funds for such worthwhile causes.
Our 2017 charities are Bowel Cancer UK and The Together Trust.
Bowel Cancer UK
Every 15 minutes in the UK someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer. That’s over 41,000 people every year. Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in the UK. However it shouldn’t be because it is treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.
Bowel Cancer UK are the UK’s leading bowel cancer research charity. They are determined to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer. They support and enable research, educate patients, public and professionals about bowel cancer and campaign for early diagnosis and best treatment and care for all those affected.
The Together Trust
The Together Trust is a charity that offers care, support and special education to children, adults and families. Their services are based in North West England and the surrounding areas where they continue to meet the needs of thousands of children, young people, adults and families
