The PEM Charitable Trust.

Who we are

As a Cambridge firm, we want to be able to support local Cambridge charities, no matter how big or small.

In 2018 we proudly launched the PEM Charitable Trust, which enables us to be more agile and to support smaller, local charities.

The PEM Charitable Trust is a registered charity (registered charity number 1181792), managed by four internal trustees – James BurrettKelly BretherickWarren Tilbury and Michael Godfrey, and one external trustee – Laurence Weeks.

The trustees work alongside our internal grant-giving committee which represents a variety of departments across the firm (who review the applications and decide on who should receive grants) and in 2022 we proudly issued our first grant!

This committee allows our employees to decide which causes are closest to the heart of the firm to really see the difference PEM can make.

What we do

At PEM, our team get involved in fundraising activities every year to help raise money for the PEM Charitable Trust to support our local charities.

We have been involved in physical challenges such as the Cambridge Half Marathon, Three Piers Challenge, Three Peaks Challenge, Hadrian’s Wall trek, and regularly fundraise through work social events such as quizzes, our Christmas party and Crufts.
