Multi-million-pound construction company Three Sixty has donated over half its yearly profits to charitable projects in the local area.
Three Sixty made the donation to Foundations Stockport, a charitable community benefit society set up in 2019 that works with the people of Stockport to help transform the lives of those in the community.
Foundations Stockport projects include:
- Your Local Pantry, a network which helps tackle food poverty and social isolation
- Proving accommodation and intensive support to people who are homeless
- Collecting good quality furniture and gifting it to households in need
Foundations Stockport says donations from Three Sixty have already helped make a positive impact in the area, with food charity Your Local Pantry (YLP) seeing over 1,000 visits during the COVID-19 crisis.
The funding also helped the YLP team deliver 1,600 food parcels to Stockport residents who were unable to leave their home.
Roger Phillips, chair of the board of Foundations Stockport, said: “It’s a challenging time for everyone in the charitable sector, and this support from local businesses is a great example of how Greater Manchester companies and individuals are pulling together to overcome this.
“The donation will help our workers to continue to deliver essential services and support the people of Stockport.”
David Wright, chair of the board of Three Sixty, said: “We were very proud to be able to make this donation. Every Three Sixty colleague has worked hard to make the business a success, knowing that everything we do is for the community.
“40% of our staff live in Stockport with many more living in Greater Manchester and they know people who use the services of Foundations Stockport.
“We’re pleased that we have established ourselves as a ‘profit for purpose’ company which is unique for the construction and property management sector.
“As we extend our services, we hope to increase our donations in future years.”
While separate institutions, Three Sixty and Foundations Stockport are both part of Stockport Homes Group.
Founded in 2017, Three Sixty has worked on construction projects across Greater Manchester, recently launching a lettings service “for landlords who want to work with a lettings agency that have a social conscience”.
