At EllisKnight International we pride ourselves as passionate fundraisers placing charity at the heart of all we do. We have had the pleasure of organising a host of successful fundraising events in partnership with our clients and our local community to support a number of outstanding charities. The EK family are also regularly encouraged to take on their own fundraising challenges with company support and sponsorship.

Awards

In 2015 and 2016 we received Corporate Charity Awards for our fundraising support of Naomi House and Jacksplace based on a 32 hour world record team rowathon we hosted in Reading and a Super Hero Family Fun Day organised by the EK Team at Wasing Park.
