CRJ Donates to three charities.jpg

It has become tradition at CRJ that instead of sending corporate gifts at Christmas, we use this money instead to donate to worthy causes.


Christmas is a merry and festive period for most people, however there is unfortunately many people that struggle more at Christmas than they do at any other time of year. This is why CRJ feel so strongly about helping people in need at this time of year.


We asked our staff at CRJ to shortlist a selection of charities which we as a team then vote upon to choose our three charities. This year, following many worthy suggestions, CRJ have voted to support; Shelter UK, Dementia UK and Papyrus – prevention of young suicide with donations of £1,000 each.


Shelter UK

Shelter is the leading UK homeless charity.

“A home is a fundamental human need and a basic moral right, as vital as education or healthcare.

But in Britain today, that right is being denied to millions of people whose lives are blighted by homelessness, bad conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction.


Our strategy sets out to be a turning point, an ambitious and fearless response to what has become a national emergency. Everything we do from now on will be to defend the right to a safe home.”


  • 6 million households are denied the right to a safe home, or are threatened with losing it.
  • 4,750 people sleep rough on the street on any given night.
  • 90,000 households are stuck in unsuitable temporary accommodation, such as homeless hostels.

Dementia UK

Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through their Admiral Nurse service.

“When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.


We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.”


  • There is over 200 subtypes of dementia
  • Over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today.
  • 42,000 are people living with young onset dementia (people under the age of 65).




Papyrus is a leading charity for the prevention of young suicide.


“Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.


We exist to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.”
