At Fenns, we believe in the power of business to create positive change in the world. As we bid farewell to a transformative 2023, where our focus was on supporting homelessness, poverty, and vulnerable children’s charities within our local community, we’re excited to unveil our ambitious plans for the year ahead. In 2024, our commitment to social responsibility and community engagement will continue to be the driving force behind our business strategy.

Sustaining Social Mobility Initiatives

Recycling for a Cause

Building on the success of our 2023 initiatives, we are amplifying our efforts to make a lasting impact on those in need. We’re is proud to announce an extended commitment to recycling customer workwear, repurposing them, and donating to homelessness charities. This year, we aim to broaden our scope, encouraging internal team members, customers, and suppliers to join us in a wardrobe clear-out, contributing to the cause of supporting homeless charities.

Greening the Workplace

In 2024, we’re introducing a recycling service for our customers, where they’ll have the opportunity to responsibly dispose of select office and business supplies. Proceeds from this initiative will be channelled towards our ongoing commitment to charities supporting homelessness, poverty, and vulnerable children.

Time is a Precious Gift

Recognising the importance of giving back, we’re dedicating a day per year for each team member to volunteer their time to local charities. This not only strengthens our connection with the community but also reinforces our commitment to creating a positive and lasting impact.

Uniting for a Cause

We’re thrilled to announce two major fundraising events in 2024 - the "Big Sleep Out" and "It's a Knockout." These events are not only an opportunity for team building but also a powerful way for us to raise funds and awareness for the critical issues our local community faces. We invite our customers, suppliers, and the entire community to join us in making a difference.

Opening Doors of Opportunity

Our commitment to providing volunteer opportunities for vulnerable members of the community remains unwavering. We’ll continue to offer positions in our warehouse and office to individuals seeking a fresh start. By creating a supportive and inclusive work environment, we aim to empower these individuals with valuable skills and experiences.

Amplifying the Call to Action

To encourage wider community involvement, we’re launching a campaign urging our customers to donate warm packs and sleeping bags for the homeless. We intend to collaborate with Brighter Futures Rough Sleeper Team to ensure that these essential items reach those who need them the most.

As we step into 2024, we’re more determined than ever to be a catalyst for change. Stay tuned to our journey towards a brighter and more compassionate future. Together, we can make a difference that resonates far beyond the confines of our business, creating a ripple effect of positive change throughout Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and beyond.
