Clugston Distribution Services is celebrating its 75th anniversary by raising £75,000 for a number of different charities. Started by the current chairman’s father in the 1930s the company has been involved in providing distribution services from the early days. The company was initially involved in the iron and steel industry, pioneering the development, use and transportation of recycled blast furnace slag from Scunthorpe’s iron and steel plants.

Clugston Distribution, together with the rest of the Clugston Group, will be pledging savings it made throughout the year from the introduction of energy saving and carbon reducing technologies, as part of the company’s long-standing sustainable strategy.

The company’s sustainable drive saw its offices in Scunthorpe furnished with solar PV and all members of its logistical fleet fitted with real time in-cab alerts to warn them about environmentally-inefficient driving practices.

In addition to donating its efficiency savings, company staff also plan to raise money by organising a number of different fund raising activities including, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, a 38 mile cycle ride from Lincoln to Boston and a 10 kilometre swim.    

David Heath, Clugston Distribution’s general manager said: “Clugston has a long tradition of raising funds for good causes. Everyone in the company is looking forward to raising £75,000 for charities that have been nominated by our employees.”
