A sustainable business

Supporting communities, clubs and charities in Leeds and throughout Yorkshire


Every year we support local community groups with their projects through our Green Vision Scheme.

Morley Glass & Glazing is a committed supporter of local sport clubs and societies, with sponsorships for a number of community rugby, cricket and even dancing organisations, including Featherstone Rugby Lions, Churwell Lions FC and Freedom2Dance dance school.

Our Company Secretary Kath Short is an active member of the Rotary Club of Roundhay in Leeds and we are also a long-term sponsor of the annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival, which raised £8,500 in 2022 at their comeback festival following the pandemic to fund worthwhile projects in Leeds, as well as nationally and even worldwide.

Since it began in 2012, the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival has raised almost £60,000 for charities. Funds raised from the beer festivals have made it possible for the Rotary Club of Roundhay to back charity projects in the local community and beyond. The Lakeside café playground at Roundhay Park was one such project they were able to support. The club also installed two defibrillators situated outside Moortown Health Centre and Oakwood Surgery.

We have supported a number of good causes such as Vets in the Community, a project run by student vets at the University of Nottingham and CATCH a registered charity made up of volunteers who want to make a positive difference in their local area. Our MD, Ian Short was so impressed with the ethos of CATCH that he is now the Chair of Trustee.

Brownies Gain Green Fingers Thanks To Morley Glass

One of the most recent beneficiaries of the Morley Glass Green Vision funding, has used the money to take over and improve one of the flower beds in a local park.

The Calverley Rainbows, Brownies and Guides joined forces to put their green fingers to the test at Calverley’s Victoria Park.

This began in 2022 as part of First Calverley Brownies centenary celebrations, with those who took part planting spring bulbs, summer perennials and winter bedding plants. A number of edible bushes and fruit trees have also been planted at the Brownies’ allotment.

Initially, the girls planted and grew all the plants in suffragette colours of green, white and purple - products including peas, beans and carrots. This year however, the funding has been used to invest in a green house where tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers have all been growing nicely.

In addition to this there is now a cage where the girls are growing cabbages and Brussel sprouts which they hope will be ready in time for Christmas. Furthermore, they also learned about sustainable foraging with some of the girls taking home some of the wild garlic growing along the footpaths.

All the girls – from First Calverley Rainbows, First and Second Calverley Brownies, and First and Second Calverley Guides – have taken part in the planting programme as part of the North East England chief commissioner’s #growshoutandshare challenge for 2023. This looks at GROWing up through guiding; SHOUTing about guiding, and learning to SHARE with communities. All attributes that complement the Morley Glass Green Vision ethos.

The girls will be doing further challenges this year including the Leeds Owl trail, donating 50 items to a local food-bank, and completing 50 random acts of kindness within the community.

Yorkshire wildlife trust

Working in Partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust have launched an inspiring and ambitious campaign to bring communities together across Yorkshire to reverse nature’s decline and bring back wild places for the benefit of wildlife and people. #TeamWilder is a rapidly growing movement of people who care about the environment, and want to help wildlife thrive, not just on nature reserves, but at home, at work and in their communities.

Everyone can get involved in #TeamWilder – simply sign up at www.ywt.org.uk/team-wilder to access toolkits, guidance, support, and events to help you to be the difference nature needs.

We are always keen to hear from charities, schools and good causes in the Leeds and Yorkshire areas who may need our help. We can’t promise to help everyone but if every business took the time and effort to give back to their local communities then the world would be a much better place.
