About the Autonet Charity Committee

We have always been passionate about our people, our business and our community, and so in 2010 we launched the Autonet Charity Committee. The committee has raised over £120,000 since it’s inception and continues to show how passionate we are about giving something back to the local area.

Charity Committee funds are raised from dress down days and fundraisers and are matched by our Board of Directors. These are donated to charities nominated by our staff. In addition to these donations, the committee show their support in various other ways, including helping to promote the charities and their services, volunteer work and taking part in fundraising events.

For all charity requests, please contact
