In 2010, the total value of our social investment was £14.3 million compared with £14.9 million in 2009. This is equivalent to 1.7% of reported profit before tax and includes direct cash donations to charities of £5.0 million and £9.3 million worth of pro bono work. These figures are based on fees the organisations would have paid for our work.
