As our business has grown beyond a regional reach, into a National platform, we are committed to giving back to these communities in the same way. Empowering people who are less fortunate than ourselves, through sport, is at the heart of all our giving.
Our Regional Charity is Cumbria Wheelchair Sports Club who offer a chance for all people with disabilities to take part in a variety of sports including; Basketball, Football and Boccia. This gives people an opportunity to meet and enjoy time together with others who have similar difficulties and provides them with a real sense of community and a support network.
Our National Charity is the Calvert Trust who offer outdoor adventure holidays for families with disabled children. They empower children and young adults to take part in sports such as paragliding, kayaking, abseiling and hand gliding, using specialised equipment and trained instructors.
In support of this charity in 2016, we have sponsored a life-size sheep for the Go Herdwick Project running throughout the summer.
As a company we believe in investing in our people with over 2,000 hours of training and development provided in 2015 alone. We are also committed to employing every member of staff on a contract basis and never use agency staff.

We help our local community by proactively serving the schools around us. We recently sponsored and attended a Bake Off event at Ullswater Community College which demonstrates our interest in the next generation of budding bakers and recognises that it is never too early to begin to look for future talent.
