Glasdon Furthers Social Responsibility Efforts with Charitable Programme

Social responsibility is, and always has been, an extremely important factor to all at Glasdon. Ever since our inception in 1959, Glasdon have been actively supporting communities and championing social responsibility wherever possible.

After many years of donating to charitable causes, 2003 saw the formation of the Glasdon Charitable Giving Committee. An increase in charity workdays, local fundraising, monetary donations and product gifting saw the social responsibility efforts of Glasdon soar.

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.

Timeline of Glasdon social responsibility Development

The development of a charitable programme means that we are able to further our commitment to support charities, communities and organisations by donating even more time and money to worthwhile causes as aligned with our mission statement.

We have even been able to introduce a new grant application system, where charities and other organisations can apply directly to us to request funding for their charitable endeavours. We invite any organisation looking for funding to check our grant criteria first before applying.

Our dedicated team is made up of a board of charitable programme managers who are all passionate about social responsibility and giving back to the community. Our team meets bi-monthly to consider which activities to support.

All activities of the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme are funded by Glasdon Group Limited, with the full support of our Chairman, Donald J Sidebottom MBE, FCIHT and our Board of Directors.
