Corporate Social Responsibility & Charitable Engagements
True Bearing are not only committed to providing first class financial advice and excellent client service but also work hard to ensure we give back to the wider community.
Community involvement is part of our business ethos and built into our strategy. We think it's important to give back, given the fortunate position we’re in. Therefore, we want to help the local community that has supported our business since we launched in 2003.
We actively encourage all employees to nominate their chosen charities. Our staff-led CSR committee then reviews which projects we can best support.
British Heart Foundation
Staff participated in the Bag It Beat It appeal and filled 23 bags, worth £2000 for the charity
Living Waters Food Bank
Generous staff donated a range of grocery and personal care items for families in need at Christmas
Children With Cancer UK
A Valentines Day raffle raised £236 for this charity. Our staff member Rick also plans to run the 2021 London Marathon in aid of this charity
Macmillan Cancer Support
This yearly tradition continued this year despite the Pandemic. It was socially distanced and staff raised £160 for the charity through a variety of tasty bakes
Derian House Children’s Hospice
Our staff member Rick challenged himself to run 1000km in a year, raising £1,050 for Derian House. What an achievement!
Staff have also given their own time privately as well and we have had many staff volunteer with local charities such as Age Concern during the Coronavirus pandemic.
We have helped many organisations and charities over the years, below are just some of those who have benefited:
- Bury Hospice
- Chorley branch Multiple Sclerosis Society
- Chorley Help the Homeless

Last Choir Singing
Our Chairman George Critchley set up ‘Last Choir Singing’ competition in 2015 and True Bearing sponsored it for several years. Open to all junior schools in Lancashire, this annual event has some great prizes on offer and promotes the benefits of music amongst participants.
Over the last few years we have also been trying to make our business as sustainable as possible. This has included recycling as much as possible, having our milk delivered in glass bottles and asking our printers to use Carbon Trust approved paper for our stationery. This means that when you are talking to us about sustainable investments, you can be sure we are living those values too.
Sponsorship and mentoring
True Bearing has been proud to sponsor the Lancastrian of the Year Award at the Sub36 Awards for 3 years running. The awards recognise talented young business people throughout Lancashire and alongside sponsorship, our Chairman has been involved in mentoring previous years winners. Members of the True Bearing team have also been into schools and colleges, promoting careers in financial services and performing mock interviews.
