Supporting Charity Campaigns at Simpson Millar
We are proud to support a number of charities in their bid to make a difference in their communities.
We have a number of initiatives which we support including:
At Simpson Millar we respect and value the work that BRAKE carries out supporting devastated road crash victims and campaigning and educating to improve road safety.
Our partnership with BRAKE demonstrates our commitment in supporting their fundraising efforts and to the road safety cause.
Here are a few examples of how our staff across Simpson Millar’s 11 offices have supported BRAKE and similar charities to raise funds and much needed awareness of road safety.
BRAKE - Super Heroes Day
Simpson Millar’s staff showed their support for Brake’s Super Heroes Day by dressing up as their favourite superhero to help to spread the message of safe driving across the globe. Staff from across our 11 offices joined in on the day and posted their photos across social media platforms with the hashtag #RoadSafetySuperheroes.
Brain Injury Group’s Road Safety Week
Last year, we joined the Brain Injury Group in their support of Brake’s Road Safety Week. We presented certificates and prizes to the children of St. Paul and St. Timothy’s Infant School who entered a colouring competition along the theme of road safety.

Child Brain Injury Trust - GloWeek
The Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) is the leading voluntary sector organisation providing emotional and practical support, information and learning opportunities for families and professionals affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK. Simpson Millar support their annual Glo Week initiative. Glo Week is about raising awareness of the dangers children face on our roads during the darker nights. Our staff took part last year by dressing up in bright clothes and wigs!
As part of the GloWeek initiative CBIT hold their AGloHa event, of which Simpson Millar are sponsors. AgloHa is a fund raising club night which in 2019 was held at the Tropicana Beach Club in London. With the help of sponsors and those attending CBIT managed to raise in excess of £30,000!!!
CBIT Track Day
Simpson Millar sponsored one of the cars that raced at the Charity Track Day at Blyton Race Circuit, Lincolnshire, held to raise funds for the Child Brain Injury Trust. Members of our Serious Injury team attended the event to show their support and also collect donations.

Blood bike donation
We are proud to sponsor the BMW R1200RT supplied by Roddison Motorsport to White-knights Yorkshire Blood Bikes . Whiteknights is a blood bike charity which operates in Yorkshire. The group has sixty volunteer riders, all advanced motorcyclists, who deliver urgent samples outside normal National Health Service office hours every weekday.
As the bikes are traditionally named, the bike was named ‘Dave Fields ‘ after Police Constable Dave Fields of the South Yorkshire who tragically died whilst on duty on Christmas Day 2017 .
The bike will assist in delivering vital emergency supplies around Yorkshire and North of England .
