Yorkshire headquartered Croda International Plc, who use smart science to create, make and sell speciality chemicals that improve lives, have been supporting the local community around their global headquarters in Snaith, England.
Homes and businesses in Snaith and surrounding villages were flooded as the River Aire burst its banks following heavy rainfall.
As longstanding members of the local Snaith and East and West Cowick communities, the FTSE 100 company is determined to help the local community. Employees from both the company’s main headquarters at Cowick Hall, and also its local manufacturing site at Rawcliffe Bridge, have been working to offer practical support to those hit by the flooding, including donations of clothes and essentials, volunteering at shelters for those evacuated from their homes, filling sandbags, as well as making financial contributions. The company has also donated £10,000 to support those who have been impacted by the flooding.
Tom Brophy, MD Western Europe, Croda said: “These floods have had a devastating impact on our local community and our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected. We are proud of the response of our employees who have come together to help the local community in Snaith and Cowick. We are pleased with the response we have had from the local community following our financial donation to support those who have been impacted. We are still looking for further ways we can provide support and are working with local community leaders to identify additional areas where we can help.”
