Nearly 80 per cent of our work force live within ten miles of their place of work, so the Company remains centered on encouraging and supporting employees to be active in their communities through volunteer work or fundraising. The Group understands the need to work with local communities and be a responsible neighbour.

Throughout the year a number of employees have been engaged in physical challenges, raising money for their local and national charities. In addition, charitable donations made by the Company at the various sites have totalled in excess of £16,000 in the year.

The group continues to be involved with the Red Lion brand, a business which donates all of its post-tax profits to forces charities.

Cranswick does not make any political donations.
