Social responsibility is a big part of what we stand for here at Cardinal. Each year our charity committee the Cardinal Trust nominates a number of charities – local, national and international – to support. Our staff raise funds through taking part in a host of activities throughout the year, including sponsored runs and bike rides, our monthly dress down day, and many more. We feel it’s a great opportunity for our team members to bond, to engage with the wider community, and to give something back and share our success with those in need.
