BROMLEYS is celebrating after winning a business award which recognises the firm’s commitment to its staff and involvement in the wider community.
The firm won the corporate social responsibility accolade at the Pride of Tameside Business Awards, with the category sponsored by New Charter Group.
The awards were presented at a gala dinner at Dukinfield Town Hall, hosted by BBC Radio and TV presenter Andy Crane.
In their comments, the award judges said they were impressed with Bromleys for its investment in staff and across the wider community.
“They have a breadth of involvement in local good causes, supporting with time, skills and money, backed up by a genuine engagement of staff in these projects,” the panel said.
Bromleys provides free legal surgeries each week at its offices in Ashton and monthly at a local women’s centre.
The firm is sponsoring Curzon Ashton FC’s home shirts this season and is raising money for The Anthony Seddon Fund, which supports people with mental health problems.
Bromleys also backs a number of other charities and provides work experience and placements for students at Clarendon Sixth Form College in Ashton.
Bromleys’ marketing associate Carol Parker has joined the Ashton Town Team’s executive committee as treasurer, helping promote the town’s social, economic, cultural and environmental regeneration.
Meanwhile, Bromleys’ commitment to staff was recognised earlier this year with the retention of its Investors in People Gold status.
Mark Hirst, senior partner at Bromleys, said: “We are proud of our strong ties with the communities of Tameside and are passionate about helping others, by giving up our free time as well as through sponsorship, donations and sharing knowhow.
“We take our corporate social responsibilities seriously while having fun at the same time, and our activities help to boost staff engagement across the firm.
“We are delighted to be recognised for our commitment with this Pride of Tameside business award.”
