In 2012 the Clugston Group celebrated its 75th anniversary. We held many events to celebrate this significant corporate milestone and also set ourselves the challenge of raising £75,000 for a number of regional charities. In this way we were able to leave a small legacy from the year to benefit our local communities.
Our 2012 fundraising events included:
- the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
- a 38 mile cycle ride from Lincoln to Boston
- a 12 kilometre walk
- a 10 kilometre swim at Ponds Forge Sheffield (a project that Clugston was heavily involved in constructing)
- Three Day Series of Dinners & Lunches
Clugston also pledged funds from savings made thanks to the introduction of energy saving and carbon reducing technologies - all part of a Group-wide sustainable strategy for the future - such as the recent installation of photovoltaic panels at its offices in Scunthorpe, and the installation of Safer Driving Assistants on 20 vehicles in the company’s logistics fleet.
The company also held a number of commemorative events throughout 2012 involving the company’s 500 employees, retired staff, customers and suppliers.
