Giving Something Back

At Sykes, we understand the responsibility we have to our wider community and strive to lend a hand in just about anything we think will make a difference! Whether through local fundraising, supporting our Charity Partner of the Year or our team charity days out, we are proud to say our entire team dedicate their time and effort to giving something back to our community!

Supporting our Community

We are passionate about giving something back!

As an employer of choice in our local area, we recognise the impact we can make in our community and are passionate about giving something back. Whether this is at our Chester Head Office or at our Sister Brands regional offices, we hold regular fundraising events throughout the year for a diverse range of charities close to our hearts!

“ I love getting involved in all the fundraising activities at Sykes, not only is it fun but knowing I am helping someone else makes it even better” Jason, Operations Trainer
“Working at Sykes is a challenging but truly rewarding environment. You won’t find a better culture anywhere else!” Sean, CRM Executive

Our Charity of the Year

We are passionate about making an impact in things that truly matter to our team. That’s why each year we ask our Sykes Family to vote and decide on our Charity Partner of the Year to receive the full backing and focus of our employees!

This year, our team have spoken and have pledged our efforts to Teenage Cancer Trust and our huge £30k target we are hoping to exceed in their name. Since becoming our chosen charity, our efforts have seen us skydive, lend a hand in their 10k run and host multiple bake sales to reach our fundraising goal, with many more fundraising events still planned!

As a company we couldn’t be prouder to focus our time and dedication to such a worthwhile charity and we continue to host regular fundraisers across the Sykes Family to reach our goal (all whilst having a little fun too). We are particular fans of a bake sale which we can always count on our team to get fully behind, as well as creating our own in-house Christmas market, hosting Bring your Dog to Work Days and dressing up in as many fancy dress costumes as you can think of.

Alongside our Charity Partner of Choice, we continuously support a number of local charities and can always be seen lending our hands to those close to home!

More on Teenage Cancer Trust

'Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words "you have cancer". They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through the toughest times they may have faced'

At Teenage Cancer Trust we know that having cancer at a young age comes with its own particular set of challenges. Our services put the needs of young people first and allow them to face those challenges together. Over 28 years we’ve learnt a lot about what it’s like to be a young person with cancer and the unique emotional, physical and practical needs that come with a diagnosis. We have a fantastic team of staff and volunteers who are inspired daily by the amazing young people who are treated on our units and via our outreach services. Young people help us decide the best way to offer cancer services and are at the heart of everything we do.
