News update – Whitbread staff make payroll gifts

Nearly 4,000 employees at leisure firm Whitbread have signed up to a payroll giving scheme. This is expected to allow the firm to donate £500,000 to UK charities over the year. Many employees chose to support multiple charities but the campaign showed that most staff favoured local charities. The scheme has been run in conjunction with the Charities Trust and Payroll Giving in Action.
