Action Medical Research staff recognised for payroll giving generosity

Howard Lake | 6 June 2006 | News

Action Medical Research has been awarded a Gold Quality Mark Award by the Charities Aid Foundation in recognition of the the fact that 27% of its staff give to charity by payroll giving.

The award is given to any organisation which has more than 10% of its staff taking part in the Give As You Earn scheme, donating money to charity through the payroll.

At Action Medical Research, over 27% of staff donate through the payroll giving scheme, giving a total of almost £200 a month. Two thirds of the participants of the scheme give their money back to Action Medical Research, and others give through their pay packets to an alternative chosen cause.

Action Research Fundraiser Marcia Hibberd said: “As a charity, we are encouraging others to take part in the scheme to help us fund medical research for preventing disease and disability, and we’re delighted that we are leading by example in this case.”
