Supporting the community

As a responsible operator, we want to play our part in supporting communities near our sites as well as protecting and enhancing the local environment.

We welcome planned school and college visits, host community open days and carry out a broad range of regular community support initiatives. In addition, local charities and community groups have benefitted from the donation of money, materials and time, through our employee volunteering days.

Our approach is to prioritise support for initiatives promoting:

  • Education, skills, and wellbeing
  • Protecting/enhancing the environment
  • Supporting biodiversity and sustainability
  • Promoting the community and heritage of the area

Assistance is prioritised to groups making applications from those based within a three-mile radius of our Tytherington quarry site. To make an application for funding, material donation and/or volunteer support, please tell us about your group and/or project, what type of support you are seeking and how your project’s aims dovetail with our support initiative goals set out above.
