Community and Charitable Giving
In 2019, we launched our new Community and Charity policy, strengthening our charitable giving across the business and enabling colleagues to volunteer one working day annually. Drax colleagues volunteered over 2,000 hours and we contributed £290,000 in 2019 through community partnerships, employee match funding, payroll giving, our community fund and national fundraising days.
Drax Power Station welcomed 9,763 visitors in 2019. Our tours are focused on learning outcomes and tailored for visitors of all ages. Cruachan Power Station in Scotland received 36,646 visitors in 2019 and offers free tours to school children and academic institutions.
