The company were declared winners of the Raj Aggarwal Community Engagement Award. The accolade recognises and rewards retailers who are actively involved in their communities, demonstrating commitment to the local area through COVID initiatives, business, sporting or charity investments.

The company were announced as winners with award organisers revealing why they had achieved their accolade success: “Croyland Motors have taken local community engagement one step further. In addition to sponsoring a variety of local sporting teams and supporting local charities the business also provided regular contribution to local foodbanks.
