GIVING BACK

We’re proud to be part of our local community. We believe that every business has a duty to make a positive contribution to the community in which they operate.

But it’s not a duty for us. It’s a pleasure. We’re delighted to take part and to support a range of causes and activities that help our fellow locals. 

Chipstead Football Club

Girls’ Football across Chipstead FC  

Citrus Financial is proud to sponsor girls’ football at Chipstead Football Club. We’re committed to supporting the local community, and we believe that this sponsorship is a great way to give back.

With an office in Chipstead, we were keen to help our local football club, especially as they do such a great job in encouraging girls to get involved in the sport and ensuring it’s fun. The women’s game is growing in popularity, and we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in sport, regardless of their gender.

Our sponsorship provides the U10 girls team with a full kit and rain tops and also sees the Citrus Financial brand feature on girls’ kits across the club. 

We are excited to see the girls develop their skills and continue to enjoy the game of football. We hope that this sponsorship will help to inspire other girls to get involved in the sport and to show them that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.

Friends for Families

Christmas charity appeal for Friends For Families 2022.

To help bring some Christmas cheer to vulnerable families in the Sevenoaks area, in 2022 we worked with Friends for Families, appealing for donations of new board games. 

We’re hosted a ‘Coffee & Cake’ morning on 9th November, inviting people to pop in, drop off a game, and have a coffee and piece of cake with us.  We then got on with some frantic wrapping and passed the board games  to Friends for Families who distributed them to the families who needed them the most.

Learn more about Friends for Families

Friends for Families provide direct, practical assistance to people who have been identified by Children’s Services as needing help which can’t be provided by central or local government: once they’ve received a referral from Children’s Services they step in to help to fill that gap. Any family can fall on hard times and find it difficult to manage.

A recent report by the Children’s Society and the Church of England called Not Making Ends Meet concludes that crisis support schemes run by local authorities are failing to operate effectively, with increasing numbers of destitute people turning instead to food banks and other voluntary agencies (like Friends for Families) for help. Friends for Families aim to provide immediate, targeted help to families in severe financial need.

Rugby for all: Tonbridge Juddians RFC

Tonbridge Juddians RFC is the local rugby club for our Tonbridge staff. It offers the opportunity to play rugby to all ages, sizes, genders and abilities and runs five teams, including a women’s side, and a range of children’s teams.

We’re very proud to sponsor the Club, with our support focussed on the First XV and on the Minis programme. The First XV are currently top of the National 2 South League, and we’re aiming to keep them there.

We especially admire how the Club encourages boys and girls from under 6 to 11 to play, have fun and enjoy the game, through the Minis programme. Children under the age of six are gently eased into non-contact rugby, through play and fun activities. Under sevens and eights play non-contact ‘tag’ rugby and, from the under nines upwards, the contact game is developed until you see 11 year olds train for, play and enjoy the adult game.

Community Faith and Business

We’re proud to support the parish magazine of St John’s Church at Hildenborough, and we’ve been doing this for 10 years, through advertising in the magazine and using the services of local tradespeople who advertise there, too.

St John’s believes that people matter, and we couldn’t agree more. We’re proud to belong to a community of people of all faiths or of none.
