The conflict and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine this year was deeply shocking, and both directly and indirectly affected many of our colleagues, partners and customers. We wanted to support the people of Ukraine and help them get access to some of the basic needs, such as medical support, food and shelter. We did this by making a donation of £50,000 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (“DEC”) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Our colleagues also wanted to help through fundraising within their local communities and so we pledged to match colleague fundraising for the DEC Appeal.
As One Halfords Family, we continue to stress the importance of wellbeing and mental health to our colleagues and partners and have mental health first aiders to support as required. As the crisis in Ukraine rages on, we will continue to do all that we can to support colleagues impacted by the crisis.
