We began with our roots firmly embedded in the Cumbrian fells and our heritage within that community. Community is therefore at the heart of what we do. As we innovate and diversify we become connected to the local community we serve, whether it is how we source products, build buildings, work with our people or support our communities. When we opened Tebay Services back in the early 70s with 28 local staff, we quickly became one of the largest employers in the area. Today we employ over 600 across all the sites but however we expand we do not lose sight of the fact that we are a part of that community and that we need to invest back into it.
From the work that we have done over 40 years at Tebay with our Staff Community Fund, nominated charity partners, staff fund raising initiatives, donations and tin shaking to our very latest and most innovative Gloucester Services project and our work with Gloucestershire Gateway Trust to help re-energise the surrounding communities, working with local communities is integral to what we do.
