We believe it’s our moral compass to step up and help those who need it most, at a time they need it most.

activpayroll has always believed in doing the right thing, and now, more than ever before, the team has had to put that belief into practice. Despite being in the midst of a pandemic, the activpayroll team has rallied together to help raise funds for its four much-loved and well-respected charities. In previous years, we have seen people jumping out of planes, running marathons and volunteering their time, although this year is slightly different, the team is more determined than ever to give back and help rebuild the support and funds that have been lost over the last year.

We will be supporting our four deserving charities throughout 2021:

Maggie's provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.

Friends of Anchor exists to ensure North-east Scotland's cancer and haematology patients receive the best possible care, treatment and support.

Charlie House was established to supports babies, children & young people with complex disabilities and life limiting conditions in North-east Scotland.

Support in Mind Scotland works to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people affected by serious mental illness.
