Creative agency donates 20 hours to charity per employee for 20th anniversary

Creative agency donates 20 hours to charity per employee for 20th anniversary

Nottingham-based creative agency, The Dairy, has committed to supporting a host of local charities as part of its 20th birthday celebrations - with each member of the team committing 20 hours to a charity or local cause of their choice.

The Dairy has been providing creative marketing services to clients across the UK since 2002, with its MD and founder Nigel Rowlson having enjoyed a 40+ year career within the industry.

The agency is celebrating its 20th year in 2022 and to mark the occasion, each member of the team has agreed to donate 20 hours of time to a chosen charity in order to give back to local communities.

The Dairy has always provided pro bono work to a handful of organisations, with Footprints CEC and the Friary included in the list of local names previously supported.

The business has now unveiled the list of charities and organisations it will be supporting for its landmark 20th  birthday.

Two employees will be donating time to work in West Bridgford’s Cancer Research store, while two more will spend time gardening and manicuring the grounds at Maggie’s - a specialist cancer support centre next to Nottingham’s City Hospital.

The team will also be donating time to support Stonebridge City Farm in Sneinton, Oxfam, Notts County Foundation and Nottingham Rugby Club.

The total number of hours donated to charity once all pledges are complete will total 160.

For the agency’s Managing Director, Nigel Rowlson, giving back to local communities is the least the team can do in the current climate as it celebrates 20 years of delivering creative marketing services.

“We all know that with the cost of living crisis, as well as a host of other factors playing a detrimental role within our communities right now, it’s never been more important to support others and give back where possible”,

“Pro bono work and supporting charities is in our DNA as an agency. We’ve always had a CSR policy which the team gets behind and loves to support, so we felt that while we celebrate such a big moment in The Dairy’s history, it was also a good time to make a significant additional pledge to local organisations and do a good deed that would go down in history. We hope that the time donated across the team is of real value to each organisation involved.”
