Aran's Charities

As a company we support good causes and charities locally and nationally, an ethos that is supported by our employees who regularly participate in national fundraising opportunities and campaigns. We operate a Social Value Policy and an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework. We genuinely care about people, especially those that are most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities. Wherever possible we will aim to contribute positively in some way.

Aran have recently made charitable donations across the regions we work in to support several initiatives including:

Peterborough Environmental Charity Trust (PECT):

a charity that is helping to protect and enhance the environment, working with communities, schools, businesses and voluntary organisations to deliver projects that make a real difference to the environment and people’s lives.

PECT were delighted to receive a £5000 donation from Aran Group towards our Energy Advice service, which supports those struggling with energy bills and living in fuel poverty.

Aran Group, a leading energy efficiency company, recently announced their Corporate Social Responsibility programme, which includes support for local charities and groups – benefiting the communities in the areas they work. In Cambridgeshire, they selected environment charity PECT, with a focus on their Energy Advice service, which aligns well with Aran Group’s mission of providing retrofit solutions and supporting householders suffering from fuel poverty.

PECT’s Energy Advice service has helped over 2000 households across the region reduce their energy use and saved them an estimated total of over £150,000 so far through fuel vouchers, local support schemes and home improvement grants.

“We are delighted to support PECT and their Energy Advice service to continue to support Cambridgeshire residents minimising the impacts of fuel poverty”, says Mark Randall, Managing Director at Aran Group.

“The generous donation from Aran Group will enable us to reach more families living in fuel poverty and give them the tools and support to make their homes more efficient, which will, in turn, reduce their energy bills,” says Nikki Dekker, Domestic Energy Lead at PECT.

The Beehive in Dover

Supporting a hive of activity in our community – representatives from DDC and partners met at The Beehive in Dover today to create a buzz around a welcome funding boost.

The Beehive, in what used to be the Roman Quay pub in Dover, is a women’s second-hand clothing boutique and café, working with local services to offer support to women.

The project was presented with a cheque for £1,500, funded through Aran Insulation’s social value grant, and facilitated through DDC’s Cost of Living Community Impact Fund.

Aran has made a donation of £1500 to the Mayor of Dartford’s charity appeal for 2023-2024. This money will be used to help four Dartford based charities; Healthy Living Centre Dartford, Home Start, Dartford Lions and The Lantern Community Centre Appeal, all of which hugely benefit people living in and around the borough.
