Did you know we have a social value fund?
You may have also heard it called community benefits, they mean the same thing and are both designed to generate benefits for our communities, customers, and local economy.
We recently asked our customers to vote on their top projects and we are pleased to be able to support 12 projects this year. The projects being supported by one of our contractors, Travis Perkins, through their social fund this year are:
