News of the Craven Foundation hits the press

This week saw news of the Craven Foundation hit the Manchester press, with Business Desk sharing Craven’s pledge to support disadvantaged children and young people have a better future. 

Each year, The Craven Group will select a handful of deserving causes to support – with time, mentoring, employment opportunities and donations.

Since its launch in January 2018, The Craven Foundation has already lent support to three deserving causes: Learning Point, a community initiative that aims to improve numeracy and literacy; Jimmy Egan’s Boxing Academy, which is at the heart of the Wythenshawe community and keeps local kids off the streets; and giving primary school children in Salford the chance to watch a super league rugby match.

The first financial donation of £1,000 by the Craven Foundation goes Jimmy Egan’s Boxing Academy, an organisation close to Dermot’s heart. The boxing centre is run by a team of volunteers who, as well as being avid boxers, are dedicated to teaching children and young people respect, discipline and manners.  

The Craven vans look the part!

At Craven we’ve been busily working away to make sure everything looks the business, including a new fleet of vans, our yard and offices.

Here’s two of the latest Craven Scaffolding vans, just before they head off to the next project.
