Social responsibility is, and always has been, an extremely important factor to all at Glasdon. We have been actively supporting the communities we operate in and contributing to worthy causes from the outset, with the full support of our chairman and Board of Directors.
After many years of donating to charitable causes, we decided it was time to go one step further on our social responsibility journey, leading to the formation of our Charitable Giving Committee in 2003. We began increasing our efforts to participate in charity workdays, donate to organisations and support local fundraising activities, as well as gifting products to charities and community groups and offering sponsorships.
In fact, 2020 alone saw us donate to a total of 108 charities and local organisations.
But we didn’t want to stop there. In 2021, we took our charitable giving to the next level by re-branding our Glasdon Charitable Giving Committee as the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme. This has allowed us to further our commitment to support charities, communities and organisations that are aligned with our aims, as can be seen in our mission statement.
Forming a charitable programme has allowed us to greatly improve on our social responsibility endeavours, meaning we can donate more, participate more and gift more. We are proud to have reached this step in our journey and look forward to continuing to have a positive impact on our surrounding communities and beyond.
