Cranswick Charitable Trust
We place great emphasis on improving the quality of people’s lives, both at home and abroad. We continue to support the regions in which we operate while strengthening our philanthropy work to provide humanitarian assistance to those facing conflict.
In 2023 the Group donated £500,000 to the Cranswick Charitable Trust (CCT), a grant making charity governed by a separate Board of trustees. This donation has been used to help with ongoing relief and aid efforts related to the Ukraine conflict, including sending aid to those affected in Ukraine as well as supporting refugees repatriated to the UK. Seven charities have benefited so far, including the UN Refugee Council, The Refugee Council, UNICEF, Red Cross, Plan UK, The Norfolk Community Foundation and The Lincolnshire Community Foundation.
The CCT has also made donations to UK-based charities to help ease food poverty, support eating disorders and provide respite for families with children that are suffering from life-limiting illnesses. These include Magic Breakfast, The Felix Project, the Beverley Cherry Tree Centre, SEED Eating Disorder Support and Ruddi’s Retreat.
