SUNRISE BAKERY SOCIAL GOOD IS A COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY
Community engagement is an integral part of our business ethos. Since inception, we have supported social, educational and sporting initiatives that help to improve the lives of those in our communities. These include:
LUKIMIA KIDS CHARITY
The Lenox Children Cancer Fund - This charity aims to make a positive difference in the lives of children fighting cancer and that of their families by providing desperately needed rest and recuperation breaks. The organisation provides a range of crucial projects that offer holidays away from treatment, doctors and constant hospital visits.
Following a flood which caused devastation across the Island of Jamaica, notable in her home Parish of Portland, Erma Lewis, a former NHS nurse, started a charity to raise funds to purchase equipment for the local hospital.
For more than 20 years, Erma’s’ charity has raised millions of pounds to support multiple hospitals, clinics, schools and numerous organisations which provide assistance to some of the very poorest in Jamaica.
Sunrise Bakery was one of the first companies approached by Mrs. Lewis, and we are proud to still be on board and have continued our association to this day.
Sunrise Bakery has also supported Erma’s Caribbean War Veterans Appeal Fund, which aims to support British Caribbean ex-servicemen and women.
If you are interested in supporting Erma’s work, contact Erma at Erma.firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunrise Bakery is passionate about engaging with the next generation. We have worked with schools and community groups to deliver training and support for various initiatives including: sponsoring the Birmingham Ashanti Netball Team and assisting local poet Ita Gooden in the publication of her book of poems that was distributed to multiple schools. We also organise school visits to our production facilities as well as providing work experience for young people.
THROUGH OUR NETWORK
Through a network of local BAME owned businesses we have been able to deliver talks on entrepreneurship to young people, as well as working with a local group of young people to put on a yearly event highlighting their academic achievement.
