Lark Supporting Charities
Our charity work
At Lark, we believe in enjoying what we do, and are privileged to be able to give something back. Our committed and motivated staff raise money for a number of charities, which we as a business also look to support with matched funding.
We are committed to helping our staff to raise money for charitable causes. To help generate as much money for these good causes we, as a business, support all charitable undertakings by matching any funding raised. It’s our way of giving back.
LARK STAFF CHARITY EVENTS
Our staff love throwing themselves into a variety of fun fundraising activities, from the more run of the mill (quiz nights, dress down days and bake sales) to the more extreme challenges (marathons, skydiving, white-collar boxing and mountain climbing).
The Not forgotten association
While we support many worthy causes, Lark’s chosen charity partner is the Not Forgotten Association (NFA).
This fantastic, but small and (sadly) underfunded, charity is a unique national tri-service charity that provides entertainment, leisure and recreation for the serving wounded, injured or sick and for ex-service men and women with disabilities.
Lark recently helped The NFA secure £5,000 of funding via a winning submission to theAviva Community Fund. This money will be of great help to The NFA in its plans to continue to bring its support to their local community.
