Our family business is committed to supporting our communities, both in the Yorkshire region in which we’re based and in our global supply chain. We know we depend on resilient communities for our employees, customers and suppliers – both present and future – and have a broad programme of community activities covering education, charitable giving and sustainability.
We support a broad range of community projects.
Many of our community programmes have a long history. Our Trees for Life campaign – which supports both people and planet – was launched in 1990 with a pledge to plant 1 million trees. Bettys Cooking with Schools initiative – our commitment to share our passion for good food and cooking as a life skill with the local community, particularly schools – was launched in 2001. And two years later the Cone Exchange, our community scrap store and recycling facility, was born.
Our people are essential to the success of our community work and we promote opportunities for people to be ‘hands on’ – whether that be planting trees in local woodland, sharing skills with young people via school visits, or nominating and supporting local good causes. Last year staff around the business raised £45,000 for ten Yorkshire charities. Through the Bettys & Taylors Good Cause Awards, this was match funded with an additional £45,000, which went to a variety of local good causes and community projects.
Globally we invest in projects and partnerships which address deep-rooted social and community needs within our supply chain.
