Giving to Charity & Good Causes
To serve is a very strong part of our company ethos so contributing to and raising awareness of people who are sacrificing their time and energy for the good of humanity is important to us.
There are many Charities and individuals worldwide who devote their existence to unselfish and noble activities, bringing relief to those affected by illness, poverty, conflict and natural disasters.
We love giving and are glad to support these Charities & good causes in all they do. Every month we nominate an organistation or individual to make a donation to and will show these below.
The Children's Society - April 2017
Fighting child poverty and neglect, and helping all children have a better chance in life.
The Children's Society are a national charity that runs local projects, helping children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable, and have nowhere left to turn. It is a painful fact that many children and young people in Britain today are still suffering extreme hardship, abuse and neglect. Too often their problems are ignored and their voices unheard. Now it is time to listen and to act.
They also campaign for changes to laws affecting children and young people, to stop the mistakes of the past being repeated in the future. In 2016 they worked with over 18,000 vulnerable children and young people, while their campaign wins will bring life-changing support to more than 5.6 million.
With our help, they are working to improve children's lives.

East Africa Crisis Appeal - Mar 2017

The Cancer Conflict - Dec 2016
This feature documentary follows two cancer sufferers, embarking on two very different treatment regimes.
With insights from some of the foremost experts in the field the documentary attempts to explore the question ‘why does the UK have the lowest cancer survival in Western Europe and what are the alternatives’?
The latest figures from Cancer Research show that half of all Britons will suffer from cancer at some point in their lives. Half. That’s a staggering and disturbing statistic but perhaps more disturbing is the survival rate – at just 50% it’s one of the lowest rates in the Western world.
The unavoidable truth is that something is wrong with the way we tackle cancer in Britain. Together we need to explore and challenge all areas of health, environment, treatments & belief systems and find new answers. Helping fund this documentary, set for release in August 2017, will help raise awareness of this important issue.
CD Automation are pleased to donate £100 to the funding of the Cancer Conflict Documentary.
Children in Need - Nov 2016
BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK charity.
Since 1980 it has raised over £600 million to change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK. There will be a touch of sadness surrounding this year's show, following the death of longtime host Sir Terry Wogan earlier this year - but hope to raise as much money as possible in his honour.
CD Automation are pleased to donate £100 to BBC Children in Need.
Chestnut Tree House - Oct 2016
Chestnut Tree House is a hospice for children with life-shortening conditions who are not expected to reach adulthood.
They provide support for children through short breaks at the hospice, and by offering community care across Sussex to families during a time of great need. At Chestnut Tree House they understand the effect a life-limiting illness has on the whole family so their services are here to help everyone.
