Supporting charities & our local community
We recognise and value our position within the community and regularly support organisations such as Schools & Nurseries, Churches, Societies (such as Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir) as well as individual fundraising efforts with donations and raffle prizes etc.
Here are just some of the causes and groups we support:
Bangers for Bluebell
In 2018 we are committed to participating in the “Bangers for Bluebell” initiative to support Sheffield’s outstanding children’s hospice Bluebell Wood. For this we will be creating an original recipe for a delicious barbecue sausage (we may even cook up a burger for them too) which we hope customers will buy and enjoy in their summer barbies. We will be donated a generous percentage of the sales to Bluebell Wood.
Sheffield is a sporting city and we are proud to have supported many of our local clubs over the years. Stocksbridge’s Golf, Cricket, Rugby and Tennis clubs have benefitted from our sponsorships over the years. John Crawshaws currently sponsor the junior section at Stocksbridge Park Steels FC and for 12 years (which includes the Jamie Vardy period) were their main shirt sponsor – you can still see ads around the ground and in the match day programme.
The Bone Bin
The bone bin has been a regular fixture at our Stocksbridge HQ for several years because that’s where our production kitchen is and they regularly have juicy bones left over from food preparation.
These left overs are made available to dog owners in return for a donation in the bone bin.
Over the years, this has literally raised thousands of pounds which we have donated to local charities and other good causes – such as the regeneration of Stocksbridge Leisure Centre by the local community, St Luke’s Hospice and Western Park Hospital.
In the run up to Christmas 2016 we sold charity Christmas cards on behalf of Cavendish Cancer Care and raised hundreds of pounds. Visit our Facebook page to find out more.
