The donations will equate to a minimum of £1,000 per charity, a total of £20,000.

The Omega success story
Omega began trading on March 28 1998, as a technical recruitment business from a single office in Stroud, Gloucestershire. The company was founded by three good friends Alan Beresford, James Strickland and Raymond Pugh who borrowed £24,000 from Lloyds Bank with a collective desire to set-up, establish and grow a quality recruitment business. With the youngest at 23 years old and the oldest at 26, the three friends had the desire, commitment and work ethic to succeed.
Remaining under the ownership of Alan, James and Ray, the Passionate About People Ltd group of companies has grown significantly to become a highly regarded national resourcing solutions group with 11 UK locations (inc. 6 on-site locations), and a very innovative service offering. The Passionate About People Ltd, headquartered in the South West now employs over 180 people with around 140 of those employees working in the region and has a forecast turnover of £120M in 2018.
At the core of the business is a beating heart of commitment, entrepreneurialism, ambition and desire to be the best, the most ethical, and the most revered, in a sector of tough competitors and many ‘me too’ businesses. To date, the business has never made an acquisition; our growth and sustainability has been entirely organic.
