Giving Back



Giving Back

We aim to be a responsible neighbour in the communities in which we operate.  This includes working with local communities and their representatives in providing financial support for certain community projects and/or initiatives.

In 2017 we are pleased to say we are sponsoring for the fifth consecutive year the Young Engineers Competition in Lancashire. Creating new skills and jobs is one of our top priorities as we aim to meet the challenge of supplying cost effective, secure and safe energy for the future. There is a prize fund of £12,000 up for grabs to improve STEM facilities within schools and foster the engineers of the future.

We are also delighted to be sponsoring the AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s ‘Train Like A Pro’ football development programme for 240 young people in Lancashire opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a professional athlete, while gaining vital life skills. The programme works with 12 local partners to select young people from across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to take part in the initiative, which has been designed to provide equal and inclusive access to sports and enrichment programmes to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
