Cloudberry Pursuits awarded Social Enterprise Mark
The award gives assurance to customers that we are trading to benefit people and the planet
Cloudberry Pursuits CIC (part of which is Cloudberry Medical) has just been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark. This national award scheme is designed for social enterprises who prove their social or environmental intentions are genuine against a set of qualification criteria.
The Social Enterprise Mark helps people to identify award holders, understand what they do and (hopefully!) encourage buying from them. The award gives assurance to customers that we are trading to benefit people and the planet.
Cloudberry Medical during 2012-2013 donated over £4.000 of discounted time to provide training to individuals, charities and voluntary groups. The individuals who benefited were mainly young people, volunteers and those working for charities.
As well as supporting Mountain Rescue in the UK we are also adopting Community Action Nepal as a charity (No: 1067772). The mountain people of Nepal’s middle hills make up the bulk of the porter work force, who have enabled so many people to enjoy the Himalaya, but who so often receive little in return. As an outdoor focussed company we decided to help CAN support community health, education and income generating projects. Cloudberry will be donating to this important work based on how many people attend our courses.
