Rank and its brands have a long history of community involvement and charitable fund-raising.

Our venues are often cited as ‘community hubs’ – particularly our Mecca bingo venues. We challenge all of our teams to consider what they can contribute to the communities that they serve.

This takes the form of charitable fund-raising for local and national causes, the use of our venues for community events and participation in local business and community organisations, amongst other activities.

Rank Cares

During 2017/18, Rank celebrated its fifth year with its charitable partner, Carers Trust. Rank employees continued with their fantastic efforts and raised a total of £0.4m in the year. We are delighted to say Rank has now raised over £2m since the start of the partnership and this has been down to the passion and commitment demonstrated by our colleagues.

Rank’s fundraising efforts include a wide variety of activities from cake bakes to sponsored team challenges.

During 2017/18, the Rank Cares programme has supported carers through a grant-giving programme which has resulted in 673 carers receiving support since the partnership started.

Employees also give up their own time to volunteer at local carers’ services across the UK. A total of 516 volunteer hours were completed by Rank colleagues in 2017/18.
