One-offs

What's a one off?

We don’t mind getting our hands dirty. In fact, we love it.

We identify charities in our community that are in need of a helping hand and we tell them that we have 15,000 x 2 to choose from. It’s up to you to not let them down. Make a difference.

Scroll down and have your pick of stable mucking, litterpicking or another equally unglamorously sounding, but incredibly rewarding activity.
