The positive community impact of Shoreline and its employees has been recognised with an award’s honour at North East Lincolnshire’s Community Awards.
The area’s largest affordable housing provider clinched the Business in the Community Award at the Grimsby Telegraph’s first ever awards for supporting its community and allowing employees to do so.
So far, Shoreline employees have donated over £60,000 for a range of causes including eight local charities of the year including Crossroads, Caring for Carers, Friendship at Home, the Pink Rose Suite and Women’s Aid.
This year alone, Shoreline has presented over £8000 to Humberston Hydrotherapy Pool, slept rough in support of Sleep Easy 2013, spacehopped across the Humber Bridge, shaved heads for Red Nose Day and donated an impressive one tonne of food to the Grimsby Telegraph food parcel campaign.
Individual employees have designed a new Humberston Hydrotherapy Pool logo and completed an epic Land’s End to John O Groats cycle challenge.
Shoreline have twice hosted and taken part in the local YMCA Sleep Easy event, completed one-off campaigns for the local Gadsby Soup Kitchen, Harbour Place, the Shoebox Appeal and Wish Upon a Star and taken part in local charity events including It’s a Knockout, St Andrews Sleepwalk, the Dock Tower abseil and the Cleethorpes Smileathon.
Shoreline chief executive Tony Bramley said: “As the area’s largest affordable housing provider, we are an integral part of the local community and carry that ethos into our social activities, making a huge difference to predominantly local charities that provide such amazing services to the people of North East Lincolnshire.
“We’re proud and astonished by what we have achieved so far, it’s with massive thanks to our employees, families, friends and partner organisations.
“We’re thrilled to have won this award because the recognition comes directly from the community in which we are part of.”
Fundraising continues with RNLI – Cleethorpes Shoreline’s official charity of the year 2013/14.
