Charities We Work With
Explore our charity partnerships
At Lucam, we strongly believe in giving back to the community whenever we can. That’s why, alongside our regular recruitment services, we frequently engage in charity work. We’re proud to have worked with a number of charities since our inception, and are committed to continuing this work long into the future.
Read on to view some of our most significant charity relationships.
For James - James Bulger Memorial Trust
In February 1993, two-year-old James Bulger was abducted and murdered. In March 2011, his mother Denise and her husband Stuart set up The James Bulger Memorial Trust.
The aim of the charity is to do good work in his name. For over a decade, it has supported young people disadvantaged by bereavement, crime, hatred & bullying; rewarded those who have made a positive contribution to others or society; and supported other organisations benefiting children in similar circumstances.
Six years ago, they organised a ball on James’ birthday held at the Adelphi in Liverpool. This was the first of a yearly project for us, and they have continued to set up annual balls to commemorate his birthday.
We’ve developed a strong relationship with James’ mother Denise and Charity Manager Stuart, who launched the charity together 11 years ago. This positive rapport has led to us being trusted to work with them for so many years, even becoming the main sponsor of their annual ball.
Alongside the annual balls, we are involved with KidsFest at Sefton Park. As sponsors, several Lucam staff volunteer to organise the event (including managing the entertainment, such as the tribute bands that play).
It’s incredibly rewarding to work with a charity doing such important work, and we look forward to supporting them long into the future.
Teardrops is a St Helens-based charity dedicated to supporting the local homeless population.
As a vulnerable group in a deprived area of the country, their work is vital to increasing the quality of life for many who desperately need help. They work towards ensuring their basic needs are met before giving them opportunities to thrive, which every individual deserves to do.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we were asked by St Helens Council to set up an emergency provision for the local homeless population. We jumped at the chance to provide aid to a vulnerable group, and successfully ran the operation for as long as it was needed. On this project, we met Shauni, the Founder of Teardrops, and a fruitful relationship began. (Click here to read more about this project.)
Impressed with our work on this project, she requested that we commit our services to helping out Teardrops on several occasions. Naturally, we accepted, and have been happily working with them ever since.
Over the years, we have contributed to their food bank, organised raffles for them, and donated several important items (e.g. toiletry packs & sleeping bags).
This is a very important cause to us, and we’re fortunate to have been able to partner with a charity like Teardrops as a result of our own volunteer work.
The Steve Prescott Foundation
Steve Prescott was a St Helens rugby player whose life was burdened by Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) since he developed it in 2006. After a seven-year long struggle with the disease, he unfortunately passed away in 2013. This rare form of cancer still requires major research in order to develop an effective treatment.
The Steve Prescott Foundation was created to draw attention to and raise money for this cause. It has been responsible for organising several fundraising events, including walks, boxing tournaments, and bike rides. Funds primarily go towards Manchester’s Christie NHS Foundation Trust, one of the world’s largest cancer treatment hospitals.
Lucam has directly sponsored many charity walks to raise awareness and funds for this important cause. Recently, we sponsored one person who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, and another woman who conquered Everest.
These impressive feats draw much-needed attention to the work done by the Steve Prescott Foundation, and we’re proud to play a part in helping them achieve their goals. Rare diseases like PMP need all the attention they can get if treatments are to be found, and Lucam is always committed to improving the quality of life of those in need.
