Charity Partnerships & CSR
At Recorra a commitment to charity is part of who we are, not just what we do. Founded by Friends of the Earth in 1988 but now a standalone company, Recorra has donated more than £350,000 to charity since 2001.
We recognise that helping charities to succeed is a collective effort and actively encourage customers, partners and staff to get involved!

The Children's Literacy Charity
The Children’s Literacy Charity provides specialist literacy tuition for disadvantaged children in their Literacy Labs and Reading Labs in primary schools. Without all the essential literacy skills children can fall behind at an early age and then struggle to make progress in school. The charity exists to help those children close their literacy gap, and to become confident and resilient learners.For every 15 working PCs or laptops we receive, we donate the value of one expert tutoring session for a child. In 2022, we helped support the delivery of 145 expert literacy tuition sessions, giving disadvantaged children the opportunity to catch up with their literacy.
FareShare is an award-winning food charity which redistributes unwanted food from supermarkets and food retailers and sends them to homeless centres, hostels and soup kitchens around the country.
Every time Recorra makes a collection of your food waste bins, we will donate 25p to FareShare, providing one meal for a vulnerable person.
