Fantastic contribution of €20,000 thanks to proactive Club member

The Grundfos Foundation (Poul Due Jensen Foundation) is a Danish foundation that is the majority shareholder in Grundfos, a world leader in pumps, water solutions and services. This year, the Grundfos Foundation has pledged 250m DKK to philanthropic purposes within three strategic areas: water, research and inclusion. As a global business with more than 20,000 employees, including a growing UK operation, it has a significant commitment to social corporate responsibility in the areas in which it operates around the world.

Looking to support projects that deliver more sustainable solutions to local communities, The Grundfos Foundation has chosen to support the HHRFC Clubhouse Project with a generous grant of €20,000.

Adam Treen (pictured with his rugby playing sons) who manages the local UK operation for Grundfos and is also a coach of the HHRFC Under 7s said, “I have watched and admired the efforts of the HHRFC Clubhouse team to put the full funding package together for the construction of a new Clubhouse at Whitemans Green and when I realised there was an opportunity for Grundfos to support the project, was very keen to show how the two organisations complemented each other’s work and objectives. I am proud to work for a company that seeks to give back to the community and excited to have been able to contribute to the success of the Clubhouse Project that will support future generations in Mid Sussex.”

Over the coming months Grundfos employees are looking to give their time to the building project and work with the local community in making this a success for everyone.

Phil Herbert, HHRFC Commercial Director added “We are grateful to the Grundfos Foundation for recognising our efforts to make the new development at Whitemans Green as sustainable as possible. We were already looking to install Grundfos underfloor heating as part of our heating solution before this opportunity for grant funding arose, demonstrating the synergy between our objectives and Grundfos as a community-minded forward-thinking operation.”

The Club hopes that this example of a business committed to delivering to its corporate social responsibility agenda may stimulate other Club members to identify similar funding opportunities from their employers, delivering benefits to all and ensuring that the HHRFC Clubhouse Project can be fully implemented in 2024.
