Argus in the community
We take our responsibility to our community seriously. We believe in being good citizens, and in supporting organisations that help people in need in the areas we operate and beyond.
Argus award grants every year to a list of charities nominated by our employees. These are organisations that are close to the hearts of individual staff members. The company will also match donations made by employees who take part in fundraising events, such as triathlons, ultra-marathons, the Tough Mudder endurance run and bake sales. This enables us to support many more charities across diverse interests.
We also participate in externally organised fundraising activities, including events run by the Carl McCain Memorial Foundation, Doctors of the World, the Histiocytosis Association and many others.
