We were delighted to receive this unique plaque recognising our contributions to Community Foundation for Calderdale at their 25th anniversary presentations last night. Thank you.
Pennine-Pack Ltd has donated over £12,000 to the Community Foundation over the last seven years. The kerbside Fund that supports employment and environmental causes has been the main recipient, but following the 2015 Boxing Day Floods Pennine-Pack made a donation through the Community Foundation to Project Colt to help them to replace their vehicles and this year we have supported the Watermark fund with 1% of our management fees from 2016.
After the 2015 Boxing Day floods, the Community Foundation raised over £1.5 million from businesses and the community. This has been match funded by the Government to give a pot of over £3million to help Calderdale residents and businesses to get back on their feet. It is unlikely that this could be matched again, so the Community Foundation’s Watermark Fund will be particularly to Calderdale as it is collecting funds in preparation for any future floods.
