Here’s how we have helped our communities through volunteering and fundraising.
We have a longstanding relationship with The Movement Centre, and have shown continued support through fundraising activities and donations. The charity works with children who have additional needs, which affects their movement control offering targeted training to give children more independence.
We have taken part in several fundraising challenges such as the Aico Abseil, where our colleagues were joined by businesses from across Shropshire to the scale the side of our 60-foot headquarters.

Through our Charity initiative, we are supporting Little Stars Baby Bank, a new charity, based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire; their mission is to help parents in need of essential baby items through generous donations from the community, helping to give children the best possible start in life. Since their creation in July 2020, the charity has helped 59 families and distributed over 2,500 items to those in need.
We wanted to offer our support to this wonderful initiative, beginning with the creation of marketing material, including designing a roller banner and offering our video recording equipment to film a promotional video.
After working alongside the amazing people at Little Stars Baby Bank and seeing first-hand how important their work is around the community, we have committed to our continued support of the charity through donations and colleague volunteering.
We are delighted to be recognised as a silver level Business Champion, as part of our continued support to Hope House & Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices.

“We are thrilled and delighted to have the continued support of Aico. The past 18 months have been so difficult for everyone.”
“During this time we managed to remain open to support seriously ill local children and their families during the pandemic despite our fundraising suffering as we were unable to hold events and our shops doors were closed. More than 85% of our running costs come from our local community, to know that we have incredible companies like Aico supporting us is fantastic.”
Lynsey Kilvert, Fundraising Team Leader, Hope House Tŷ Gobaith
