An example of matching charitable funds was in February 2010 when all staff were given the opportunity to work for an hour for nothing in aid of the Haiti Appeal. They raised £6000.00 which was made up of £3000 from staff with £3000 matched funds from the company. They do not have a set upper limit but decide on any limits on a case by case basis. RLB try to give each unit/office a high degree of freedom and autonomy so that they feel they "own" their programme.
