CUB Recognised for Community Work in March
In recognition of our community work for March Street Pride and March in Bloom, we have received an invitation to the 2016 Street Pride Celebration Evening! We are so proud to have been part of this initiative and have had great fun taking part.
As a family run business, team work and community are at the heart of what we do. We encourage a charitable and philanthropic approach and with a generous spirit, our staff have offered their supported year after year.
Some members of the team have been supporting the community and charities in their own right. They are creative in what they do and always see an opportunity to give back and support a good cause.
Natalie has received a Queen’s Guide Award which is the highest award you can attain within Girlguiding after completing a programme of achievements including services to guiding and the community.
Louis supports a charity called ‘I Run 4’ where he is paired with a young man called Michael who suffers from autism. He shares his sporting endeavours with Michael and has even sent his medals that he has won to help encourage him to get involved in sports and to stay active.
Melinda has been busy organising a bridal event and has looked at ways to support a charity called The Pheobe Research Fund so amongst other things she will be running a raffle offering the chance for the ‘brides to be’ to win their wedding shoes.
Our well established Green Team are always seeking new ways to support the community and both local as well as national charities. They are constantly busy and have had a bumper year of activity so far!
From supporting local school children in gaining vital interview and employability skills to donating computers and desks to Dragon Mobility who create power chairs for children and adults, there is no limit to the creativity and energy our team share for a good cause. That is reflected in the raising of over £3000 for charity this year so far.
We love supporting our local town and being involved in March Street Pride and March in Bloom was a real privilege. Our green fingered team enjoyed planting bulbs earlier in the year and planted hanging baskets and barrier planters to ensure the town looked pretty all summer long. We have also been part of the litter picking team hopefully becoming a positive role model for others to get involved and take pride in their community.
