Proud of our work with charities and the local community…

Throughout our 150 year history we have supported the communities in which we do business.  Today, this is formalised into a corporate social responsibility policy, but we’ve been actively supporting our local communities for decades – before all the corporate jargon existed.  Here are a few examples of how we try to make a difference…
