South Hook LNG’s Community Development Programme Reaches over 550 Local Projects
Over 550 individual Pembrokeshire charities, community initiatives and events have benefited from South Hook LNG’s Community Development Programme in the past five years.
Safety clothing for school children, equipment for sports clubs, environmental breeding programmes and sponsorship of numerous concerts, are just a few of the many initiatives that have received financial assistance from the Company, since 2006. Last year alone, South Hook LNG was able to assist over 170 Pembrokeshire organisations, many of these supported by numerous volunteers from across our County.
“We are proud to have been involved with so many fantastic community organisations in the past five years” says South Hook LNG’s Acting General Manager, Elvan Akkaya.
“We are part of a global value chain for the movement of energy, but our roots in Pembrokeshire are incredibly strong. We are very much a part of this community, and our aim is to support projects that echo the key values of our business, from safety and environment to education and wellbeing.”
These guiding principles have meant that South Hook LNG has become synonymous with the ongoing development of community initiatives across the County, through an active desire to build lasting relationships with the local community.
South Hook LNG is keen to continue to build upon these successes and hopes to further its support of local groups and communities. Applications are reviewed regularly by the Community Development Committee. The application form and more information is available through the Community and Learning pages of the South Hook LNG website www.southhooklng.com
