Croyland continues to provide vital community support for sports clubs, charities and local projects.
Throughout the lockdowns and challenges of the pandemic the team at Croyland has helped numerous organisations and charities at the heart of the community.
Donations and sponsorship are just some of the generous ways Croyland has helped make a difference for hundreds of local families locally. By regularly offering support Croyland helps ensure these important community organisations and good causes can continue to operate throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
Croyland has helped to make a difference in many ways including providing regular monthly donations to Rushden Food Bank which so many people and families rely on. Croyland boosted their food and product donations throughout the pandemic, including December, with monthly donations continuing throughout 2021. Croyland’s community support was recently highlighted by BBC Radio Northampton, which staged a live broadcast at its Rushden showroom.
With lockdowns taking their toll on communities everywhere and with annual events, like the Christmas party for children at Higham Town F.C. cancelled, Croyland stepped in to ensure they could still bring some festive cheer for the young players. More than 140 children were delighted to receive their own bumper bag of sweet treats as a gift from Croyland.
Players at AFC Rushden & Dimonds Youth were also thrilled to be supported by Croyland who become one of their kit sponsors at the start of the football season and followed this up with a donation for the club's Christmas raffle.
Croyland Car Megastore's General Manager, Mark Swindells, said: "Croyland is extremely proud to help so many fantastic community causes and clubs as part of our ongoing local support. When operating a business within the town we believe it is paramount to be able to demonstrate our support for our local community.
“We have all faced a challenging 2020 and we recognised how important it was to help ensure all the community clubs and charities, like the local food bank, are able to operate and continue to be there for the hundreds of people and families who rely on the vital services and support they provide. Croyland is at the heart of the local community and we will continue to support these and many other worthy causes throughout 2021 and beyond.”
Mark Cullen, Chairman of AFC Rushden & Diamonds Youth, expressed the club’s gratitude to have sponsors like Croyland pledging their support alongside providing access to the services of Croyland’s marketing agency, Rocket Creative.
He added: “Croyland is a very well-known brand within the town. We have the pleasure and good fortune to count their General Manager Mark Swindells as one of our coaches, which has led to us gaining support from their marketing company as well as access to a host of other opportunities, which we hope to make use of in the coming months and years. We recently raised funds through a Christmas draw which Croyland allowed us to hold in their Rushden showroom in the presence of their mascot Cooper. A huge thank you to Mark Swindells.”
