Heywood Pension Technologies, Christie fundraisers

Heywood Pension Technologies is a pensions solutions company based in Altrincham. They have been supporters of The Christie charity since 2019.

In 2020 and 2021, Heywood Pension Technologies were awarded the silver award by the Charitable Giving agency for their phenomenal payroll giving scheme.

Payroll giving is an easy and tax-efficient way of making regular donations. It provides The Christie charity a vital, regular source of income which comes out of your pay before tax. This means the charity receives a lot more than you personally give.

Generous payroll givers like the team at Heywood Pension Technologies enable us to plan ahead and continue our work towards a future without cancer.

“At Heywood, we pride ourselves on being a socially responsible employer, and payroll giving is one of a number of ways in which we are able to fundraise for The Christie.
“The Christie provides vital services to our local community, supporting people during some of the most difficult times of their lives. Many of our staff, along with their friends and family, have been helped by The Christie at some point and payroll giving provides an opportunity for us to give something back to this very worthwhile cause.
“I have found payroll giving a great way to donate to The Christie – it’s so simple to set up and is processed automatically each month so requires no effort on my part. Our company matches donations, and tax relief is added on top, so the donation that The Christie receives is much bigger than the net amount it costs me.”

  - Louise Donohue, Operations Director at Heywood Pension Technologies

“At Heywood, we have a personal connection to The Christie, with several colleagues and their families having received treatment from them over the years. Payroll giving enables us to act collectively in supporting a cause which is close to our hearts, and it is always encouraging to hear about the difference we are making together.
“On a practical level, payroll giving also makes it easy for me to ensure I get the maximum tax relief on my giving, so that as much money goes to the charity as possible.”

  - Joseph Denniss, DevOps Engineer at Heywood Pension Technologies
