Every year Vapormatic support many charitable and community programmes, both regional and global.
Bicton Overseas Agricultural Trust (BOAT) (www.boatagtrust.co.uk)
BOAT is an organisation which provides opportunities for key educational personnel in developing countries to be trained in a wide range of agricultural and food-related topics, from the latest farming technology to best business practice.
Since its formation in 1991 Boat has followed its ethos of "training the trainers" and has now provided training to more than one hundred key trainers coming from several countries within the Developing World.
Hospiscare is a Devonshire based charity providing an all-encompassing service for people with a terminal diagnosis. All their services are provided free of charge with the support of the local community.
Charitable Giving (www.charitablegiving.co.uk)
The scheme allows Vapormatic employees to donate to their chosen charity from their gross pay, before tax is deducted.
Charitable Giving provides a range of services to support charitable giving at work and is one of the three largest HMRC-approved Payroll Giving Agencies in the country.
It is a tax efficient way of giving to charity - any PAYE liability is calculated after the Payroll Giving contribution has been deducted from gross pay, so the tax that would have been sent to the Chancellor of the Exchequer is received by the nominated charities
