We are proud to be part of a thriving community.
Our Community Programme is an integral part of NWF.
Focusing on healthy living, sport, education and children, we engage with the local community on many levels. Here is how we are making a difference...
Field to Fork
Our Field to Fork educational tours for local school children are still going
strong. Since 2008, over 1000 children have been on site to learn about the journey their food makes from the field to their fork.
Check out our Field to Fork website for a virtual tour!
We have a charity partnership with local children's charity, The Sussex Snowdrop Trust. We help the charity with produce donations for their events and fundraise across the business - from company quiz nights to ice cream and baking events!
NWF pledges to match any staff fundraising for Snowdrop and encourage our employees to get involved.
So far we have raised just over £4,800 for The Sussex Snowdrop Trust!
This year's Chichester Triathlon was a great success - it was the 11th year in a row that NWF sponsored and over 1,200 people took part, including many of our employees. We kept everyone refreshed with 250kg of fresh fruit!
Our Employee Volunteering initative is going strong!
All NWF employees are entitled to take one day's paid volunteering a year. Our HR Department spent their day at Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital to paint, clean, garden and look after the animals. We have also had teams spending their community days at the Brighton Ronald McDonald House, Chestnut Tree House and with the Manhood Wildlife Heritage.
Healthy living, sport and education are key to our Community Programme. We help sponsor Chichester Rugby Football Club, 5 Ways to Wellbeing and Chichester Priory Park.
Summer gets busy with donations of raffle prizes for fetes and thousands of bags of fresh product for local events like the St Wilfrid's Hospice annual Moonlight Walk.
Towards the end of the year we donate Christmas Trees to local schools and community centres to spread some Christmas cheer!
