Seasons Greetings from Briggs of Burton

With awards, multiple successful project including our first malt whiskey distillery in China and the brand new Pharmaceutical Systems Assembly opening, 2023 has been a great success for Briggs of Burton.

In this season of giving, we’re delighted to announce that Briggs of Burton, is giving back to the communities and charities that matter to us and the people we work with. Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) underscores the importance of making a positive impact on communities near and far.

In actively engaging in CSR initiatives, we contribute to the well-being of society and set a precedent for the positive role businesses can play in addressing critical issues. Briggs of Burton remains steadfast in its dedication to making a meaningful difference in the communities we serve.

Community Sponsorship Days

In addition to these festive season donations, we continued to support and encourage our team members to take community sponsorship days, a Briggs initiative which allows our colleagues to use up to three days a year to help the community.

We’re excited to share Yuri and Ed’s stories:

Edward Gould, Global Technical Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent

Edward Gould opted to use his community sponsorship days for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in order to help facilitate collection box distribution across the area. He is a member of the British Legion and provides support to drop off and collect the poppy appeal boxes to enable collection of any donations.

I am one of hundreds of volunteer Poppy Appeal Organisers around the country organising the Poppy Appeal on the ground. All to continue to raise vital funds for the work of the Royal British Legion in providing a lifeline for serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. -Edward


We’re happy to share that Yuri’s community sponsorship day was a success.

The people and the children there were so happy for the donation! -Yuri

Yuri Belen applied to the community sponsorship for support of a local not for profit organisation that helps to support families in times of need. The program allowed for $500 USD to be donated in September in order to purchase food for their food bank. Find out more about what Nariz Roja do here.
