Van Elle in the Community

From our head office, plant, transport and offsite production teams in Kirkby in Ashfield to our teams delivering over 1000 projects a year out in the field, we all strive to make a positive difference within the communities we serve.

Corporate social responsibility is high on our agenda and our teams are encouraged to take part in a wide variety of activities in addition to their day job.

Read about how we have been delivering community activities across the UK below.

The BIG Ashfield Spring Clean

In March, volunteers from across the business rolled up their sleeves and collected and disposed of 20 bags of rubbish from a public pathway near our Kirkby head quarters.

Tree Planting

Our team of volunteers helped to plant 150 sapling at Holiday Hills Park in Kirkby in February, alongside children from Bracken Hill School.

Van Elle's CSR activity for Binley Junction

A46 Binley Junction

During a project for Osborne we attended a number of stakeholder engagement sessions, providing information to more than 300 people. We also donated 20kg of biscuits to Coventry food bank.

Cancer Research UK

For our 2021/22 Charity of the Year we have taken part in Stand Up to Cancer, hosted our local CRUK rep during a Lunch & Learn session and are planning to host a fundraiser in the Spring.

Derby Ram Trail 2021

As a sponsor of the Derby Ram Trail we sponsored a ram, supporting Derby Museums’ Endowment Campaign. In addition, our in-house team designed and delivered bespoke concrete plinth bases for the rams, which we collected and recycled one the trail closed.

Teversal Titians

A kids’ football team, based five miles from the Van Elle’s Kirkby-in-Ashfield head office, started their 2021 summer league in brand new kits thanks to our donation.
