Zero Waste Food Share tables
We are running regular food share tables where we collect food waste from local stores, then give it out in the community locally to save it from incineration or going to animal feed.
Commercial Property Rates Mitigation & Charitable Work
We’ve a combined team experience of over 48 years in property investment and development and focus on mitigating commercial business rates and creating community spaces.
We’re totally all about the community spaces. After a successful introduction in December 2017 for the Charity Care UK to occupy a large property in Northwich, saving the landlord over 80k a year, we are continuing to make introductions of ethical charities, CIC’s and companies that are environmentally friendly and zero waste shops to landlords that have commercial property that they need rate mitigation on. Business rates are a huge financial burden on commercial landlords and charities need community spaces.

We are very open about how we operate, the ethical business/charity gets the property for a peppercorn rent, and the landlord pay a fee based on a percentage of the saving they make on the rates. Everyone is happy, the community get space and we are able to fund humanitarian projects that we support!
