Helping to make a difference
Rapid takes its ethical and community responsibilities very seriously.
We support a number of local and national charities with a wide-ranging programme of fundraising. These include the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, Breast Cancer Now, Save the Children and MacMillan Cancer Support. Our local chosen charity is St Helena Hospice in Colchester, with whom we have worked in partnership for over a decade. We have been able to donate considerable sums to the hospice due to continuous initiatives, such as the funds received from a car parking service for football supporters using the nearby Colchester United Community Stadium. As a Spring Sponsor in 2021 we were able to help the hospice with its Virtual Ward, a vital service which allows patients to remain at home during the last weeks of life, while receiving personal care and support from hospice staff.
