2023: A year of Fundraising for True Honour

Join us as we reflect on a successful year of fundraising for True Honour

Earlier this year, IMCD UK was pleased to announce that True Honour was selected as our designated charity to support throughout 2023. 

Join us as we reflect on a successful year of fundraising.
True Honour
True Honour work to support survivors of honour-based violence and forced marriage, pledging to help as many victims of abuse as possible. Working closely with agencies across the UK and internationally, and using the first-hand experience of victims, they hope to educate people and provide them with a better understanding of the signs to spot to prevent abuse before it takes place. 
True Honour’s approach includes thorough training initiatives, raising awareness, and providing a shielded and empowering support system for victims.
IMCD UK partnered with True Honour in the hope that, by working together, we can empower victims and create the positive change that is needed to create a more inclusive society.



IMCD UK supported this venture with a range of fundraising events and challenges:

1000km Walk
On May 18th, 60 IMCD UK employees undertook a collective 1000km walk. For 49 members of the IMCD team the adventure took place through the scenic countryside of the Surrey hills, with the remaining 11 team members taking part in their corresponding locations across the UK.

Choosing our 2024 Charity
As part of our ongoing desire to give back - a key value at IMCD UK – we are now in the process of selecting our chosen charity for 2024.

Once again, all IMCD UK employees will be given the opportunity to put a charity of their choice forward for potential selection. After receiving the nominated charities, colleagues will vote for the charity that resonates with them the most.
The charity that gets the most votes will go on to be supported by IMCD UK throughout 2024.
