ABL Business focus on supporting businesses to grow but we also embrace the importance of giving back to the community and supporting those who need it. One of our key values is ‘being human’, and you can’t be human if you don’t use your commercial advantage for a wider positive purpose.
Take a look at what we’ve been up to, if there’s something you think we can get involved with that you are doing let us know!
This year the ABL team has decided that we’ve had enough treats and that we would like to do something for someone who needs it more this festive period. Rather than buying each other Secret Santa presents we have selected to take part in the KidsOut ‘Giving Tree’ buying toys for children in local refuge homes. Without Giving Tree, these children may not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas.
We have a Giving Tree up in the office if you would like to join in. Next time you come into the ABL office simply select a tag with the gift you would like to purchase. Gifts need to return to the office by Thursday 12th December.
