Here at Harpers, we believe in giving back to the community. Over the years, we have raised money and volunteered our time for charities in the East Midlands area as well as supporting local not for profit businesses.
Our responsibilities fall into the following roles:
We need your help to donate a Cadbury's Medium Selection Box (or 2).
A message from Operation Orphan's Forget-Me-Notts project...
"As it is nearing Christmas we are starting to get ready for our Christmas selection box pack where we distribute selection boxes to children in the care system across Nottingham. This year we have more children than ever who have been referred to us, over 2500. For some children, this will be the only gift they receive this Christmas, which is why it is so important for us to do this!The selection boxes we require are:
Cadbury’s medium selection box which contains 6 items and weighs 169g.
Christmas is already hitting our shelves and each little box will have such a big impact.
The reason we ask for specific selection boxes is to keep things fair. Each child is then treated equally by receiving the same yummy selection box! If you can help us by donating some selection boxes (or donating money for us to purchase these) that would be amazing."
Harpers has introduced its “Harper Pro Bono” project, which sees the Harper Recruitment Group offer a free of charge recruitment service to a regional charity or not-for-profit organisation. “With a long history of supporting well deserving local and regional organisations, Harpers has always wanted to make sure we are giving back to the community,” said Jane Harper, Managing Director. “It’s always been very important to me personally and the team are equally as driven to ensure that we all do our part to help those less fortunate.” “We will make sure that we are always carrying at least one Pro Bono project and I’d love to hear from any organisations that feel we could be of help.” Said Jane. “We are so pleased to be currently assisting “Operation Orphan” based in Chilwell, who improve the quality of life for orphans and vulnerable children. They are a fantastic charity doing some amazing work. Some of our team members have volunteered their time to help out at their distribution centre, and we are currently undertaking an assignment to assist with recruiting a management team member.” For more information on Operation Orphan go to www.operation-orphan.org.

As part of our pro bono project, our management team lent a helping hand at Operation Orphan HQ.
The team spent the day sorting and packing warm clothing as part of their Keep a Child Warm project. The aim of the project is to collect as many good quality warm winter coats as possible and pack these, together with gloves, scarves, hats and socks and a blanket. These packs are then given out in the most desperately needy villages where children live in -30 degrees with no central heating, no coats and no indoor toilet!
