Charities we support
Here at Grant, we like to give back. We’re big supporters of local and national charities, community organisations and groups, that we champion through a range of charitable fundraising initiatives. Over the years we have donated financial support and scientific equipment to several organisations in the Cambridge area and wider UK community. We’ve got a great team at Grant, who not only keep the Grant cogs turning every day, but also go the extra mile to fundraise and volunteer their time.
Melbourn Village College
In 2016 pupils at Melbourn Village College benefitted from a donation of four JB Aqua unstirred water baths. The water baths have given pupils at the college the tools to work on smart materials during design and technology lessons.
In 2016 Grant Instruments donated £201.36 to Blue Smile following a staff bake sale. Blue Smile is a children’s charity in Cambridge providing counselling and therapy for pupils in schools between the ages of 3 to 13.
RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre
In August 2015 Grant donated an unstirred water bath to RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre. The water bath is an essential piece of equipment used to warm the hedgehogs milk feed in the centre’s isolation ward.
Bottisham Village College
In July 2015, Grant Instruments donated a JB Academy unstirred water bath to Bottisham Village College. The water bath is used for scientific experiments by pupils in the science department.
Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity
In May 2015, staff at Grant organised a fundraising lunch buffet on ‘eat what you want day’ raising £100 for Shepreth Wildlife Conservation charity. The charity raised money for important wildlife conservation work both at home and abroad.
Newmarket and District Swimming Club
In 2014, the local Newmarket and District Swimming Club received a donation of a new trophy cabinet following a club refurbishment.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Grant have hosted annual Macmillan Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, raising hundreds of pounds each time.
Dragon Boat Race Festival
In 2018 and 2019, Grant have taken part in the dragon boat race, alongside holding a variety of events such as a Grant bake-off, lunchtime quizzes, summer garden party and raffles, all in aid of the Addenbrookes Charitable Trust.
