Charity in 2023 with The Graduate

As a company we love to support local charities. Our nominated Charity for 2023 has been The Lewis Foundation. They continue to provide cancer patients with the Free packs to make their struggles that little bit easier.

Sarah our recruitment coordinator offered herself as the guinea pig for an amazing challenge. Sarah took on the challenge of Abseiling down Northampton’s Express Lift Tower in September. The tower is 418ft tall and based in the heart of the town. She agreed to this challenge even though she has not abseiled since she was a kid at school. She had also had mentioned it was on her bucket list. So win win for everyone.

From signing up to the challenge in June till the day Sarah completed the challenge, we worked hard on raising as much money as possible for this fabulous charity. Additionally, we even created our own unique shirt. This offered clients and local business’ the option to advertise their business logos in exchange for a small donation. We managed to raise an amazing £805 in total. Sarah excelled at the challenge and made us all so proud of this achievement.


The Lewis Foundation is a charity close to many hearts. The foundation was set up by Lee and Lorraine Lewis after they recognised the fear, upset and loneliness faced by individuals who undergo cancer treatment. These two set up the charity and they have built an army of almost 50 volunteers and hundreds of regular supporters. They deliver over 2,500 gifts to fourteen hospitals in the midlands every month. They produce 29 different packs which include things from toiletries, colouring books, puzzles, and even miniature radios to keep patients entertained. Do have a look at their website on other ways to help.

Another year another award for The Graduate!

We were over the moon to be advised that we won the “Best Graduate Recruitment Company for 2023 in the East Midlands” earlier in the year along with “2023’s Leading Graduate Recruitment Services Provider – UK”.

Awards like this really do make us proud. Being able to help the graduates look in to the future and achieve their dreams is a real achievement.


We are happy to continue to sponsor Northampton Mavericks.  The Mavericks are a close knit group with a squad of supporters watching on the side lines from parents, partners to kids, so come along if you want to watch. It’s a great thing for kids to get involved in. They are currently planning for developing a kids squad, developing future talent in this amazing sport.
