CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility

As a socially responsible company, we are an ethically-driven company which strives to support and practice high standards of social and environmental responsibility. Our CSR Policy is fundamental to the way we work and we aim to have a positive effect on the communities around us and on our planet.

Our charity commitment
One of our key commitments is to nominate a Quest Charity of the Year which we then support throughout the year in any way we can. In 2015, we were delighted to support Levi’s Star and Levi’s Angels, twin charities run by a single management team to support children with brain tumours and their families (Levi’s Star) and bereaved adults (Levi’s Angels). These two charities do great work across the Yorkshire region and we are proud to have supported their deserving causes.

The Quest Charity of the Year 2017

We like to support a local charity each year and we are delighted to say we have 2 deserving charities this year that we will support with our fundraising activities.

Cash for Kids is Bauer Radio’s network of local charities, which operate across 22 areas around the UK. Our mission is to respond to the needs of children in our communities, and we aspire to enable all children to live life to the full and achieve their individual potential.

Each Cash for Kids charity was established to channel the caring of the local community into the welfare of their own youngsters. We use the power of our radio brands to deliver initiatives for sick and underprivileged children in our communities, to benefit local children and give the most disadvantaged a better and brighter future.

Every year we raise millions of pounds for local children and young people who are suffering from abuse or neglect, who are disabled and have special needs or who simply need extra care or guidance.

We participate in a huge variety of fundraising events both on & off air and by encouraging individuals, groups, schools and companies to jump on board, join in the fun and offer a helping hand to disadvantaged children in their own community.

With cash raised locally each charity guarantees that the generous donations made by listeners will go towards bringing hope, healing and happiness to children in their community. All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.

Whitehall Dog Rescue was set up by Brian Wheelhouse in 1992 after finding out that stray and unwanted dogs collected by dog wardens or handed in to the police had a very short time to live if they didn't find a home. The dogs were taken to private kennels who had the contracts with police and dog wardens. The dogs were put on hold for 7 days and if a new owner could not be found in this time, the dogs were put to sleep.

Brian ran a motorcycle and car sales business in Leeds and decided to try and help the plight of these poor unwanted dogs, so he converted part of his showroom and built in kennels to accommodate his new guests. A licence was sought from Leeds City council to make sure kennels came to specification. These kennels were used right up to 2004 and helped save the lives of hundreds of dogs.

The decision was made to close the car sales business as the dog rescue was taking 99% of the time. So Brian relocated to a farm in East Ardsley in Wakefield (nr Leeds) where he continues to rescue dogs from death row.

Whitehall is dedicated in its quest to save the lives of these unwanted dogs. We aim to provide the best facilities possible for our rescue dogs. We try to create an atmosphere as close to home as possible for our dogs. We work hard to rehabilitate and train the dogs and provide whatever treatment they may need.

Whitehall operates a strict NO KILL policy. No healthy dog is ever put to sleep with us, no matter what behavioral or medical problems the dog may have. If the dog cannot be rehomed it remains with us and lives out its days as part of the 'Permanent Residents Club'.
