Established in 2012 as the charitable arm of Allen Lane Interim & Permanent Recruitment, the Allen Lane Trust financially supports deprived, sick and needy individuals in the UK. These people, often individuals who are still young and trying to develop their lives, simply do not have the opportunities that many of us take for granted.

The Allen Lane Trust is looking to help these people enjoy a better life through fundraising, volunteering and financial support.

In terms of Social Responsibility, as a team we have decided to work more frequently with charities and raise more money for them. Since 2008, all of our staff have been tasked with raising much needed funds for a charity or charities of their choice through a range of events or challenges. Our 2014 events included a 245km cycle ride across Ireland, a trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Berlin Marathon, a 100km London ‘Nightrider’ bike ride and a marathon 9 hour long tennis match.

Allen Lane is not a perfect organisation - but with the commitment of our people and a clear vision of how we must shoulder our social and environmental responsibilities, we have already made real progress and intend to make much more.

Below is a collection of photos from various fundraising activities and initiatives that Allen Lane staff participated in whilst fundraising for their chosen charities in 2015.
