As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, Johnson Matthey plc has asked EVA to help with a small donations programme.  Johnson Matthey is a speciality chemicals company, with a chemical plant in Enfield.


Every month one local organisation will receive £500 to assist with their work in the Borough. This may, for example, help to pay volunteer expenses, hire a venue, purchase essential equipment, fund a leaflet, provide a social lunch for older people etc.


Small charitable, voluntary and community organisations are invited to put forward their ideas on a simple application form.  The forms will be entered into a monthly draw at Johnson Matthey, from which 3 ideas will be presented to employees and voted for.

You can make an application at any time to be considered for future donations.


Each month the idea with the most employee votes will receive the £500.
