Sukh Saini, Managing Partner of Pictons says “Our company ethos is in the importance of giving something back to the communities where we are based. We support a wide range of charities and community projects, from helping the young to aiding families and people in their senior years.

Our employees’ willingness and commitment to helping people is unrelenting. There are so many ways that we can make a valuable contribution, not only through sponsorship and fund raising but also in the giving of our time and expertise to help the people who need it.

We encourage our members of staff to actively participate not only in fund raising but also in offering their services as Trustees of local charities. We advise and guide such organisations, making them stronger and more able to help the people they have been set up to support.

“In 2015 we won the Bedfordshire FSB’s Community Business of the Year Award, this really brought home to us how important it is for us to be present in our communities. We were over the moon to win amongst stiff competition”.
