As the UK subsidiary of a major Israeli bank, we support many charities that help wider communities in which we operate, as well as Britain’s Jewish and Israeli community.
During 2017, the Bank has been supporting central London homelessness charity, The Connection. Every Thursday, members of the Bank’s team volunteer at the charity’s base serving a hot breakfast to homeless people.
The Connection helps thousands of homeless people each year to stay off London’s streets. It provides a range of specialist services, all under one roof, to help people address their homelessness and re-enter society and live ‘normally’ again.
As well as regular volunteering work, staff at the Bank also raised money for the charity with events such as a bake sale and by donating clothes.
We also believe that sustainability is part of the community, so as well as supporting the Leumi Group’s global sustainability endeavours, we look for ways to minimise our impact by using local and ethical suppliers. For example, the Bank uses Fruitful Office as its supplier of fruit for staff. The company plants one fruit tree for every basket it delivers.
