Learn more about our charitable support
We are proud to support a wide range of charities and communities across the UK, through colleagues’ fundraising and volunteering their time.
AMC’s core function is to support the UK’s agricultural sector with the funding it needs to consolidate, grow and diversify. However, we are keen to also back the communities in which our customers operate, so are looking to raise between £10,000 and £15,000 in 2017 to support a number of local and national charities and our Charity of the Year, Mental Health UK.
Throughout the year, colleagues from across AMC have supported a wide variety of charitable organisations, often working with local businesses and business clubs.
During 2017 we are supporting a range of different causes:
|Cake Bake for the Mental Health charity’s Blue Monday campaign
||Valentines Raffle & Tombola for the Enham Trust
||Cream Teas for the Green Ribbon charity
Cake Bake for Red Nose Day

Day to Make a Difference 2017
Every year, AMC colleagues volunteer a full day to support a local charity with much-needed manpower and time. Their collective effort has previously supported Caen Hill Community Farm, an organisation supporting people with learning difficulties. In 2017, AMC colleagues will be supporting the River Bourne Community Farm – a community-based project creating a 1960s working farm in the Salisbury area.
