Our Corporate & Social Responsibility
For many years, as long as businesses served their communities, economies were able to function effectively for the good of wider society – this meant people could live longer, healthier, and more prosperous lives.
However, in recent decades there has been a steady estrangement in the relationship between economic progress and societal requirements, which has, unfortunately, left many vulnerable portions of society behind.
At Anglia Translations Ltd, we know that businesses need to help to bridge that ever-widening gap between economic growth and those that have been left in the dark.
We know that to do this, the responsibility starts with us to drive change that can once again evolve our economies to make our society a more inclusive place.
How Are We Doing This?
Although we have never actively advertised our philanthropic efforts up until now, we’ve always understood our responsibilities to give something back to communities both at home and abroad.
We’re proactive in donating both time and money to organisations that mean something to our company and the individuals that make us what we are.
Here are some of the organisations that we’ve recently worked with:
Anna’s Hope is a leading brain tumour charity for children in the East Midlands. The charity is committed to offering hope to children and young people who are diagnosed with brain tumours.
The charity raises funds that can help to transform the lives of children with brain tumours who require support and rehabilitation during and after their treatment.
Our Managing Director Mary Gilbey has been a long-time supporter of this fantastic cause, and volunteered to help wrap Christmas Presents for the charity in 2019 in the Peterborough shopping centre.
In March of 2021, we also chose Anna’s Hope to be our Charity of the Year, and we will donate a portion of our profits at the end of our financial year to help Rob and Carole continue the work they do in memory of their daughter Anna, who passed away in 2006 from a brain tumour. We also aim to raise funds throughout the year by getting involved in some fun events.
Little Miracles is a charitable foundation that offers a helping hand to families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and conditions that are ultimately life limiting.
Little Miracles offers these children a place to play, socialise and create friendships, whilst offering their families access to the support, advice and care they need to prosper.
At Christmas time 2020, since we couldn’t send out the usual gifts to our corporate clients, because many were working from home, we made the decision to donate this money to Little Miracles instead.
Translators Without Borders
Traducteurs sans Frontières is a charitable foundation formed in 1993 in France by translation experts Lori Thicke and Ros Smith-Thomas.
Translators Without Borders, as is it now known, seeks to match the world’s absolute best translators with charities across the globe in order to get boots on the ground in areas impacted by natural disaster, famine and war.
This means that these communities have the right information they need on health, education, nutrition, and other vital literature that could often spell the difference between life and death.
At Anglia Translations Ltd, inspired by the incredible work these translators do for oppressed and suffering communities, we made the decision to contribute to this amazing cause and we are proud to be an official Bronze Sponsor.
