The charities and causes that really matter to us.
Raising funds and awareness for a charity close to our hearts
in 2018 we will be working with The Errol McKellar Foundation which raises funds for research, plus awareness, of prostate cancer.
One of our founding partners, Steve Davies, has been battling with the illness for a long while and we know that some of those battles have been long and hard fought. So along with sending all our love and support to Steve we wanted to do something practical.
Errol has also suffered from this illness which now kills more people than breast cancer. Errol’s story is an interesting one - he went to the doctor about his snoring and saw a poster with a footballer talking about getting tested for prostate cancer. He asked for the test and discovered that his prostate had 92% cancer. He has recently been awarded the first ever NHS Hero Volunteer award recognising all his efforts, as almost 50 of his garage customers only discovered they had cancer because he offered them discounts if they could prove they took a PSA test.
Our hope is that by supporting Errol as he shares his story, it becomes a subject men feel more confident and comfortable to discuss.
A pledge to support the armed forces community
The Armed Forces Covenant is a commitment to acknowledge, understand and support those who serve or have served in the armed forces. It states that they and their families should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
TORI is proud to be a Bronze level Armed Forces Covenant supporter. Amongst other things this publicly demonstrates our respect for the armed forces, but also that we are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.
TORI is delighted to sponsor Richard Phillips Racing, based at Adelstrop Stables in the Costwolds. Martin Harvey, CEO, says he is pleased to bring his passion for horse racing to TORI, whose name appears on all racecards. "We are proud to be associated with such a talented team of National Hunt horses."
