As a major employer in its community, we understand the importance of our corporate social responsibility and recently stepped up to the plate by helping to raise over £20,000 for local charities.
As main sponsors of the Trawden Beer & Music Festival, we helped the community come together for three days of delicious food and a variety of beers and ales, all accompanied by some brilliant local music.
This year’s festival, now in it’s third year, saw us raise a record breaking £20,000 (the first year hit £10K) for four extremely deserving local charities – Pendleside Hospice, Derian House, Petal Childhood Cancer Research and the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
Glenn Dunleavey, our Managing Director, thought up the festival in his role as a member of the Colne Noyna Rotary Club and it has since become their biggest and most successful event. Glenn said: “We’re incredibly fortunate to have our offices in this beautiful village and are very proud of our local community. We welcome any chance we get to support it and the Trawden Beer & Music Festival is the perfect opportunity for us to give something back.”
The festival has grown year on year, and we have supported it from the start, not only by sponsoring and pledging, but by getting hands-on with the set-up.
“Being socially responsible isn’t only about the global issues that affect us all, it’s about the people and places right outside our door. Supporting our local charities in this way puts a smile on everyone’s face – we can’t wait for next year! ”
