Our Charity Champion award is our way of saying “thank you” to recognise all the energy, time and money the team at Think Money continue to put into our relationship.”
Think Money believes that organisations should make a difference to those less fortunate than others and shows social responsibility both locally and internationally, supporting Jubilee Action and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Payroll giving is a governmentally approved and supported form of donating. Immediate tax relief and a commitment from the Government to match donations made for the first 6 months make payroll giving a great scheme for socially involved employee.
