Redwood Technologies has continued its longstanding commitment to charitable work with another donation to the Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF). On the 25th of October, directors Sean and Martin Taylor met with Joanne Stokes and Chris Barrett of the BCF at the company headquarters in Bracknell to present the organisation with a cheque for £10,000.
It was the latest in a series of contributions to the foundation on behalf of Redwood since the establishment of the Redwood Technologies Grassroots Fund in June 2010.
The BCF is committed to providing assistance to a diverse range of at-risk groups in the Berkshire community. Since their foundation in 1985, the BCF has supported a wide range of local causes with provision of advice and grants to local causes, such as improving facilities for young people and offering help to the elderly. Under the terms of the Community First Programme, the UK government will match Redwood’s latest donation for one pound in every two, taking the value of the primary Redwood Technologies fund to £75,000.
“Redwood Technologies has been operating out of Berkshire for nearly twenty years and we are very proud to be able to continue supporting our community with the help of the Berkshire Community Foundation”, said Sean Taylor, Director of Redwood Technologies.
“Even in relatively affluent areas like ours, there are those who need extra help. We are committed to helping these people and our work at a grassroots level allows us to get funding to those who really need it.”
