Embracing Impact: Why We’re Proud to Be a Social Enterprise in the UK

09 May 2024


In the bustling landscape of business, where profit margins often take centre stage, there exists a vibrant and impactful community that is redefining success. At Pennies from Heaven, we stand tall and proud as a social enterprise in the United Kingdom, driven not only by the desire for prosperity but by a deep commitment to positive change.

The Heart of Social Enterprise in the UK

The UK, a pioneer in recognising and fostering social enterprises, has become a hotbed for innovative businesses that strive to make a difference. With over 100,000 social enterprises contributing a staggering £60 billion to the economy and employing more than 2 million people, the impact is undeniable. #SocialEnterprise in the UK reinvested £1bn over the last year to help people and planet. On #SocialEnterpriseDay, and every day, we’re proud to be part of this growing strength in British business.

Our Unique Journey
Pennies from Heaven has embarked on a journey that goes beyond the traditional business model. We are not just selling products or services; we are crafting a narrative of collective positive change. Every step we take is guided by a dual purpose: to thrive as a business and to contribute meaningfully to society and the environment and since Pennies from Heaven started trading in 2000 we have raised £7.5m for more than 800 charities.

Shaping a Positive Culture

Companies working with Pennies from Heaven, are joining a movement much bigger than just their individual contributions; they are actively participating in a mission to build a better, more sustainable future. They are part of a community of socially driven companies who believe that the positive impact we all make together is much bigger than what we can do by ourselves. We fundamentally believe that asking everyone to donate a little bit of change, has a deeper social impact than asking a few people to donate a lot. We enable people to not just be a contributor to their own charity but a catalyst for societal betterment.

In the tapestry of business, social enterprises are the vibrant threads that weave together profit and purpose. As we stand proudly in the realm of social enterprise in the UK, we invite you to join us in this journey—a journey that goes beyond success measured in numbers, and towards a success that leaves a lasting, positive impact on the world we share.
