The Severfield Foundation is a registered charitable incorporated organisation. The Foundation raises funds for, and offer practical assistance to, charitable bodies throughout the UK, mainly through the activities of Severfield employees and companies.
We are encouraging employees to raise money for charity with the incentive of matched funding from the Foundation. We have also set fundraising challenges to our Group companies for 2017.
Our employees are at the forefront of the Foundation’s activities, contributing to and taking part in events. With their help, our vision is to develop The Severfield Foundation into a leading and effective charitable trust, which in turn, will help and support disadvantaged people and local communities.
Each year we will support a major ‘partner’ charity and the local charities chosen by each Group company (as decided by the staff in each location). All moneys raised will be split between one of the local charities and the Group’s ‘partner’ charity.
For 2016 and 2017 we have chosen Prostate Cancer UK as our ‘partner’ charity. We intend to help raise much needed funds and awareness of prostate cancer because our workforce is predominantly male and 1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.
The Severfield Foundation will be run by its trustees (who are all employees of the Group).
