Here at British Salt, we value the importance of supporting the communities in which we operate - whether that’s encouraging local employment or supporting causes close to our hearts.

Working with St Luke's Hospice

British Salt’s charity partner is St Luke's Hospice - a wonderful palliative care provider, which is based in Winsford, Cheshire, and supports people from the moment they are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.

As a company we organise a large-scale charity challenge each year, to help raise money for St Luke’s Hospice and donate what we can to such a worthy cause.

To learn more about the incredible and essential care that St Luke's Hospice provides, please visit the website.
