Furness in the Community

Together we’re stronger, which is why giving back to our community is extremely important to us. Local people are at the heart of every decision we make and our teams are very active in the community through a variety of initiatives:

  • Fundraising events
  • Food bank donations
  • Volunteering days
  • Community support donations
  • Sponsorships

Boost for Barrow Foodbank

We've donated £4,000 to Barrow Foodbank to support local families during the escalating cost of living crisis.

Furness Community Donations

Rewarding worthy causes run by local people for local people.

Each month, we seek to reward the hard work local people do throughout our local communities. Our community donations initiative gives local people the chance to apply for funding to help them with the fantastic work they do for others.

So whether you need a new sports kit, want to give your youth club or nursery a lick of paint, or simply need help with a fundraising event, we could help.

Applying is easy; simply fill out the short form below to let us know about your good cause and how you’d use the money.

Applications will be reviewed each month and, if you are successful, we’ll be in touch to arrange payment.
