Bury St Edmunds: Greene King backs Suffolk Foundation event
PUBS and brewing group Greene King has played host to a lunch for leading professional advisers to help the Suffolk Foundation in its efforts to encourage giving to support local charities.
Senior representatives from Ashton Graham, Greene & Greene, Ensors, Atkinson Bolton and Mills & Reeve were invited to the Bury St Edmunds company’s Brewery Tap to hear David Sheepshanks, chairman of the Suffolk Foundation, talk about successful examples of collaboration between professional advisers and the foundation.
“As a company that is committed to working closely with our local community, we are very happy to welcome the Suffolk Foundation and their guests to the Brewery Tap,” said Steve Magnall, deputy managing director of Greene King Brewing and Brands. “Over the past six years, the Suffolk Foundation has proved itself to be a very positive force for good in Suffolk through their community grants programme, and we are delighted to be able to host this event for them.”
Since its creation in 2005, the Suffolk Foundation has awarded more than �4million in grants to local charities and community groups in order to strengthen local communities and tackle social disadvantage.
“The foundation is extremely grateful to Greene King for their hospitality,” said Mr Sheepshanks.
