Our Charity Partners
FDM strongly values giving back to our community. Working together towards a philanthropic cause helps to give perspective and unity to us as an organisation. We participate in a number of charity events, campaigns and initiatives every year at both at the regional and international level.
FDM and Anthony Nolan’s partnership works to save the lives of people with blood cancer by matching volunteer donors to those in desperate need of a stem cell transplant. Our aim is to increase and diversify the Anthony Nolan register by raising awareness and encouraging our employees to join, hopefully leading to a lifesaving match. You can read more about our unique partnership in our blog here.
“We are delighted that Anthony Nolan has been chosen as FDM Group’s charity partner. By working together to add much-needed diversity to the register we will improve the chance of everyone finding the match they need. Together, we hope to give more people with blood cancer and blood disorders a second chance of life.”
– Henny Braund, CEO from Anthony Nolan
Walking with The Wounded
Walking with the Wounded offers assistance to service leavers who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assists them in maintaining their independence outside of the military. FDM sponsors and takes part in numerous fundraising events throughout the year including Walking with the Wounded’s annual Cumbrian Challenge and Walking Home For Christmas.
“FDM have shown their continued commitment to the Armed Forces covenant and their work with ex forces by turning up in numbers at our Cumbrian Challenge each year with bag loads of enthusiasm and good cheer. Their ongoing commitment has raised more than £30k to date to support the men and women for whom transition out of the military is not easy and who struggle with mental health issues, become unemployed, homeless or caught up in police custody.”
– Ed Parker, Founder Walking With The Wounded
