Blue Skye Foundation
At Bruckshaws we feel passionately about supporting local worthwhile causes and this has always been intrinsic to the business and our perceived measure of success.
We set up our own Charity, The Blue Skye Foundation, when we started the business in 2001 and this has enabled us to combine supporting larger Charities who are close to our hearts with making a difference on a local smaller level, wherever possible.
Our key staff support causes that have affected them personally and so our Director, Clare Shearer, is frequently helping at events in aid of the Cobalt Appeal plus fundraising for the Vale of Evesham School, and MD Jenny Bruckshaw is often cycling in aid of either Cancer Research or the British Heart Foundation.
Christmas is always a really busy time for the Charity and we regularly make donations and gifts to the Children’s Ward at Gloucester Royal, Food for the Homeless and visits to nursing homes and hospices. The Charity enables family, friends and business colleagues to support local causes in a cohesive effective way and we love the fact that we can react quickly to situations we hear about.
