Charity Commitment

We are committed to supporting worthwhile causes where we can and, this year, we have asked our employees to nominate charities they would like to support. After carefully considering all suggestions, we are delighted that The Config Team will be supporting Alzheimer’s Society and Mind during 2020.

Starting the year as we mean to go on, we have already pledged to donate £400 to the charities from some events that we organised at the end of last year, including our own version of Movember and our very popular Christmas Fuddle.
