Carlisle Support Services has agreed to sponsor Crimestoppers, the independent crime-fighting charity. The initial deal will be for 12 months with an option to extend this by a further two years.
Richard Chappell, Carlisle's CEO, said: “This is so much more than simply making a donation to Crimestoppers. We will be working with Crimestoppers in a number of ways to improve the way in which we get the message out there that there is an independent charity, to which you can safely and anonymously report crime.”
Business development director for Crimestoppers, Rodger Holden, added: “We are delighted to be working with Carlisle Support Services as we embark on a number of exciting projects over the coming year.”
Carlisle has a history of being involved with charitable projects and already supports the British Lung Foundation. Chappell added: “Business isn't just about delivering great services to clients; we should do more. Business is about being a part of the wider community and lending a hand to make things better, so that in the long run we all benefit.”
