Season’s Greeting’s

This year we want to make an extra effort to support third sector organisations that have done so much for so many. With that in mind, we have decided not to send gifts to our valued customers and business partners this year. Instead, we’re asking you to decide which charities or community groups you would like us to support.

We have compiled a shortlist of charities that are close to the Continent 8 team. Please cast your vote below before Thursday 31 December. When all the votes are in, we’ll let you know the charities that will receive a gift from Continent 8.

Thank you and Season’s Greetings from the Continent 8 team.
