Our staff love to give their time and energy to support local charities and community efforts and The GTH Charitable Trust makes regular donations and match-funding pledges to boost donations. We choose a charity to support each year alongside many other office based events and personal challenges for causes close to our hearts. In addition to fundraising, we understand the importance of caring for our environment and are actively looking at ways to reduce our impact on it as a firm.
Charity and Community
Our Chosen Charities
Supporting Air Ambulance Charities
Air ambulance charities rely entirely on private donations to keep their key emergency services running. Over the last couple of years, our staff have taken part in a variety of events in support of Dorset & Somerset and Devon crews, and the firm has donated significantly to their vital work through its charitable trust.Learn more
Creating Tomorrow's Forests
We're delighted to partner with Tomorrow’s Forests, planting an initial 300 trees at their Charlotte’s Wood site on the Somerset Levels in 2022. In time we hope to plant another 50-60 trees each year – on average, one for every new employee.Learn more

Coast to Coast Challenge
GTH staff swapped their office attire for cycling gear as they embarked upon the gruelling Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge in aid of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. The event marked the start of Air Ambulance Week and the 600 cyclists taking part had the option of an 11-mile or 55 mile route.
