It is a charity close to our Managing Director, Mark Robinson's, heart as they are committed to making a difference in local communities by supporting young people to achieve their goals through jobs, education and training.

      Last year our Director's took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks raising a whopping £10,000 for the charity in what proved to be a challenging but rewarding experience.

      This year we have embarked on the Million Makers Campaign. A team of volunteers from across the Vantage family have joined forces for an entrepreneurial journey. You can find out more on that below.

      RHS Harlow Carr We have a great working relationship with RHS Harlow Carr.

      We are really pleased to be able to support The Royal Horticultural Society in their 'Greening Grey Britain' campaign. This campaign aims to educate people on the environmental impact of paving their driveways and offers up alternatives to paving that enable you to utilise the space whilst staying green.

      We have a Hybrid vehicle in permanent placement as part of their 'Greening Grey Britain' installation. This enables the team to educate their visitors with a real life example of how they can encourage wildlife into their gardens and prevent flooding by making informed choices when designing their own gardens.
