Social Responsibility

Ricky Richards is a family owned company that has grown to become Australia’s number one distributor of industrial and commercial textiles.

Corporate social responsibility is a broad term used to describe a company's efforts to improve society in some way. Ricky Richards is committed to giving back to the community and as a company makes solid effort to support and donate money to many not for profit organisations throughout each year.
There are two major charities Ricky partners with:
Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) since 2015

Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick (SCH) since 1996

As at May 2020, between the two partnerships Ricky has donated over $450,000 and this will continue to grow along with the numerous fun charity days hosted throughout the year with the teams.

How you can help?

Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick (SCH) since 1996
The first Friday of December each year means one thing here at Ricky and that is we give thought to those less fortunate and support our community by raising funds for the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation. On this day we donate a percentage of all sales to the Foundations greatest area of need ensuring new equipment and technologies are always in place. If you place an order on this day, you can be sure you have helped raised funds for the SCH and you will receive a certificate of thanks from the team for you to display proudly to your visitors.

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) since 2015
We have a selection of blind and awning fabrics, shade fabrics and marine materials that are in the MIA initiative and by purchasing these textiles, you will assist in the donation we give each year. We donate a percentage of sales from the below to fund a research fellow at MIA as well as being the Principal Partner for the national event, Melanoma March.
