The founding investors are Booths, United Utilities, Marsden Building Society, Browsholme Hall, CKS Catering Equipment, Dewlay, DSM Accountants, Harrison Drury, James Hall & Co Ltd, Kim De Vine Financial Planning, MHA Moore & Smalley, Nybble, Obas, Panaz Holdings, Sales Geek, Star Tissue UK and Workhouse Marketing.
Rae Brooke, Executive Director of the Community Lancashire Foundation said: ‘WWe are looking for forward-thinking and proactive businesses eager to see Lancashire communities thrive, rebuild after the pandemic and beyond. Lancashire’s Investors in Community initiative creates opportunity for businesses to impact the lives of others as part of the business community’s collective effort to make a difference. “
The Community Foundation for Lancashire is a registered charity established in 2007, which has distributed over £ 16million to community groups, organizations and projects across the county. He specializes in supporting small local charities and community organizations that provide critical and expert support to the most vulnerable in the community. Often these groups are less publicly well known and therefore traditionally less well funded even if they render an invaluable service.
