TURNER'S CSR AWARDS
Turner has a long standing relationship with Plan International to provide schools in Africa. As we broadcast to Africa and are experts in children's entertainment it makes perfect sense to concentrate some of our volunteering and philanthropic efforts building schools in the world's poorest countries. Working with Plan International we have so far fundraised all the money for and helped to build schools in Mali, Rwanda, Malawi and Ethiopia and the fifth African school in Tanzania will be completed in 2014. Turner helps by providing funds, giving staff time off and also pays for the majority of the trip costs with the volunteers paying the rest so all the money that is fundraised goes to the project.
Turner donates up to £18 million worth of airtime a year and together with other donations this put it into The Percent Club alongside The Body Shop, BBC and Sainsbury’s as one of the UK’s one hundred most generous companies.
