09.12.2016 - Community Fund Surpasses Half a Million
2016 has been an incredibly successful year for Mick George Ltd for a whole host of reasons. The business has gone from strength to strength, posting some impressive results and claiming a number of prestigious accolades along the way.
But whilst that has been going on, the organisation has certainly not lost sight of its commitment to the increasingly growing communities in which it operates. In fact, quite the opposite. The level of support issued has coincided with the growth.
The second round of the Mick George Community Fund has recently completed with a further £275,000 distributed to local community projects and initiatives. This takes the total for 2016 to a staggering half million pounds.
The projects awarded span across three separate counties, serving a wide variety of sport and community based ventures. In summary:
- Boston Squash & Racketball Club: Changing Room refurbishment
- Friends of Somersham: Nature Reserve access improvements
- Rockingham Forest Trust: Stanwick Lakes Play Area creation
- Kentford & Kennett Village Hall: New community premises and playing fields
- Ringstead Village Social Club: Update Catering Facilities

Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Being able to provide support at any level is immensely satisfying, but for us to reach such levels this year is a tremendous effort for all involved, and is a reflection of what the business has achieved.’’
Stump continued: ‘’Over the years the business has been fortunate to be involved with some wonderful projects that have positively contributed towards the community. When selecting which applicants are most worthy, we remain completely impartial and try to vary the sectors and regions that will benefit.’’
