Charity and Community
At Pen our people take great pride in supporting charities and community projects through fundraising and volunteering while helping to raise awareness of some great causes.
Over the years we've undertaken many challenges, from lockdown stepping to running marathons, competing in triathlons and pedaling our bikes all over the country. And it's not just about pushing ourselves physically - we've given our minds a workout too with regular quizzes, bake-offs, fun and games taking place around our offices as we aim to raise as much as possible.
Our charity partners - 2021
In 2021 Pen employees voted to continue with our support for Pancreatic Cancer Action and Willow Foundation as our two corporate charity partners. Pen's own Charity Committee has been set up to focus our efforts.
