Laithwaites have a number of sporting clubs available to staff to join. For example there are lunchtime yoga classes twice a week in the Head Office and tennis, badminton, rugby and cricket clubs that practice regularly during their respective seasons. Virgin Wines and Averys Wine staff may join the cricket and football teams and have the option of taking up places on the London Marathon sponsored by Virgin. In addition staff are encouraged to assist with vine picking in the UK vineyards during the wine harvest. The firm also promotes charity fundraising efforts that are based on physical challenge, such as marathon rowing, long distance cycling and endurance running. Further new initiatives will commence following the engagement planning process following recent staff surveys.
