Funding and Support

The DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme supports charities and organisations that are aligned with our goals and vision as can be seen in our mission statement. We supply grants to these worthwhile causes in the format of monetary donations, product gifting and fundraising, depending on the needs and requirements of each organisation.

All grants supplied by the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme are funded by the activities of Glasdon Group Limited, with the full support of our Founder and Chairman, Donald J Sidebottom MBE, FCIHT and the Board of Directors. In 2020 alone, this funding helped to support 108 charities and local organisations via the Glasdon Charitable Giving Committee, a number which we hope to increase year on year as a charitable programme.

You can discover success stories from some of these charitable efforts via thank you letters we have received or by reading our blog.
