Turner & Townsend plants seasonal card cost into charitable donation

Lydia Parnell

Global Corporate Responsibility Manager


This holiday season Turner & Townsend has decided to donate the money that would otherwise go to designing and sending seasonal cards to charities around the world.

By doing this, we support our ambition to make the difference to children and young people around the world.

This year we are delighted to announce that £15,000 will be donated to eight charities chosen by colleagues in each of our regions:

North America - Children's Defense Fund

Championing policies and programmes that lift children out of poverty and ensure they have access to health care and education.

Latin America - Save the Children

Giving children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.

UK and Ireland - Action for Children

Helping vulnerable and neglected children, young people, and their families.

Europe - Doctors without Borders

Delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care

Africa - SOS Children's Villages

Preventing family breakdown and providing care for children who have lost parental care, or who risk losing it

Middle East - Omani Bahjah Orphan Society

Inspiring hope, fighting poverty and promoting charitable work to care for orphans and people in need.


Operating in 190 countries, UNICEF provides humanitarian and development assistance to children in danger.

Australia - Youth off the Street

Supporting disadvantaged young people as they work to turn their lives around and overcome homelessness, drug abuse and abuse.

In the New Year, we will launch the second phase of our community pledge campaign and ask our teams to make a personal commitment to contribute to their community.

Don’t forget to look out for #TTwhatsyourpledge on social media, the hashtag our colleagues use to raise awareness of our pledges to help the community around us.

“I’m delighted that we’re reigniting our pledge campaign for a second year to inspire social action. Last year we received over 500 pledges from people across our global business to make an impact to local communities. We're excited to see the new commitments and contributions our people will make to their local communities in 2018.” Lydia Parnell Global Corporate Responsibility Manager
