It gives me great pleasure to announce that the 2019 International CSR Excellence Awards Heart of Gold Trophy was presented to our Champion of Champions…
NORTHERN GAS NETWORKS for their COMMUNITY COMMITMENT project.
Since 2016, Northern Gas Networks have been working in partnership with Leeds Community Foundation (and recently Northern Powergrid) to deliver their Community Promises / Partnering Fund. The scheme provides funding for third sector organisations to deliver a free service for customers in vulnerable circumstances.
Grants range between £1k and £10k. £200,000 has been allocated since 2016, with almost 6,000 vulnerable people benefiting directly, and seven recent projects helping many others. Longer term benefits include economic, job creation, education, social behaviour changes and financial savings for individuals.
Our congratulations to NORTHERN GAS NETWORKS and our congratulations to all the rest of our winners. A list of our Gold winners can be found here: https://lnkd.in/gJRfb6Q
