Charity & Community
At Crown Paints, we’ve always taken our commitment to charity and the local community seriously. In fact, since 2010 we have raised an amazing £110,000 for our various chosen charity partners, all of which are handpicked by the staff here at Crown. New partners are decided based on causes that are close to the heart of us all here at Crown Paints. We have a dedicated charity team who are passionate about raising funds and organising events.
Children with Cancer UK
We’re proud to have worked alongside Children with Cancer UK since 2016, the leading national charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. The team here is incredibly passionate about helping them to raise funds for life-saving research. An astonishing 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK alone. To put that into perspective, that’s 10 families each day receiving the most devastating news possible.
East Lancashire & Dovehouse Hospices
We also work alongside charities in the local community at our Darwen base. East Lancashire Hospice and Dovehouse Hospice, two fantastic facilities that service the local community and rely on donations and charity to continue the inspirational work they carry out. Both facilities cater towards those with life limiting illnesses, providing the best possible care and offering families support during such a traumatic time. These two hold particularly close meaning for many at Crown Paints who have seen the amazing work they do in our local area first hand.
The Hempel Foundation
Our parent company, Hempel, take a strong lead on Corporate Social Responsibility and the Hempel Foundation is the company’s charity foundation, currently supporting the education of 40,000 children across 22 projects worldwide.
Each year, Hempel offers employees the opportunity of a lifetime to visit and volunteer at one of the Foundation’s supported projects, with the 2014 volunteer group heading to Indonesia in September! Keep an eye on the ‘Our Newsroom’ section for photos and updates of the trip.
