Whittles in the community

Annual Charity

We recognise the importance of the community in which we all work and live and we support local good causes with our expertise, encouragement and funding as appropriate. Every financial year we nominate a local charity to benefit from and to provide a focus for, our fundraising activity.

Open Road

This year, the partners and staff have chosen Open Road to benefit from our support. An established Drug and Alcohol Recovery support charity in Essex and Medway, Open Road provides services to support individuals on their journey to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
