Our Chosen Charities 2020
Being at the heart of our local community and helping where possible is something The Directory Group is driven to do. In previous years, our Chosen Charities scheme has been effective regards raising awareness and money for local organisations that help change thousands of lives across Hampshire.
This month, we are excited to share our new Chosen Charities for 2020 in which we pledge to support the following causes by offering free publicity within our magazines and online over the forthcoming year. In addition to this, our team will find time to volunteer in one way or another, as well as holding a fundraiser at our Petersfield based office.
