Generous donation

Thanks to the generosity of Crane BS&U, The Somerville Foundation was recently presented with a cheque for $6,000 (£3,500).

Volunteer, Mike Hocking, kindly nominated The Somerville Foundation to receive the donation through Crane's Charitable Giving Scheme. Thank you very much Mike!

Crane BS&U has been an Ipswich-based manufacturer for nearly 100 years. Once a prominent employer in the region, the headquarters remain in Ipswich with UK-based factories in Hitchin and St Helens producing a range of valves and pipe fittings.

Each year, Crane BS&U staff are invited to nominate charities which have some form of affiliation to them and their families – particularly smaller ones that provide direct services and assistance.

Does the company you work for have a charitable giving scheme, charity of the month/year, or offer matched funding? Find out and you too could help raise essential funds for The Somerville Foundation.
