Charity and community work carried out by Invictus Communications has been recognised with an award.

The firm, which is based in Derby Road, Melbourne, has been given a prestigious CSR Accreditation award in return for its staff’s efforts over the years to support good causes across the country.

They include its managing director, Jonny McPhee, who has pledged to run the London Marathon in aid of the Rosie May Foundation, a charity the company has supported for a number of years, as well as its ongoing involvement in Derby’s annual Christmas Cheer project.

Invictus was given the award on behalf of social responsibility company CSR-A by Burton company Payaro, which is a newly established ethical supplier of electronic payment systems.

The award coincides with a commitment from both companies to work together, with Invictus invited to supply the technology needed to connect Payaro’s point-of-sale machines to the internet.

It means that Invictus will be part of Payaro’s movement, which plans to use its payment systems to do good into the community.

This includes donating a percentage of every financial transaction that goes through a Payaro machine to the Buddy Bag Foundation, which is a Midlands-based charity that helps young children who are in emergency accommodation after fleeing domestic violence.

Payaro also wants to use its technology to create town centre loyalty schemes, where customers can earn points by buying goods or services at one business and then cash them in at a neighbouring outlet.

Jonny said: “We have always done our bit to raise money for good causes and help in the community when we can, so it is very rewarding to have had that commitment formally recognised.

“We are particularly excited to be a part of Payaro’s ethical approach to business because they allow us to continue our approach of forming collaborations with local companies and will put our products and services to good use by using them to raise money for charity or help communities get back on their feet following the coronavirus lockdown.”
