Clugston Distribution Services is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2012 – as part of the Clugston Group – by raising £75,000 for a number of charities.
Employees from the company, which recently announced it was expanding into the fuels distribution market with a £500,000 investment in 4 new 44-tonne fuels tankers, will be participating in a number of fund raising events.
Taking place throughout 2012 fund raising activities include, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, a 38 mile cycle ride from Lincoln to Boston and a 10 kilometre swim.
Clugston Distribution, together with the rest of the Clugston Group, will also be pledging savings made throughout the year from the introduction of energy saving and carbon reducing technologies, which form part of the company’s plan to develop and implement a sustainable strategy for the future.
Recent green initiatives include the installation of photovoltaic panels at the company’s offices in Scunthorpe and the installation of new technology – within the logistics fleet – which promotes fuel and carbon efficient driving by providing drivers with real time in-cab alerts about their driving style.
Clugston Distribution general manager David Heath said: “Clugston has a long tradition of raising funds for good causes.
“Everyone in the company is looking forward to raising £75,000 for charities that have been nominated by our employees.”
