Doing the right thing – it’s how we do business
Hull Kingston Rovers partnership
Sewell on the go has again joined forces with Hull Kingston Rovers after becoming the new sponsor of the Colin Hutton Stand.
The business previously sponsored the Family Zone at KCOM Craven Park.
Sewell on the go stores can be found close to KCOM Craven Park on Holderness Road, Maybury Road, Wyton Bar, Southcoates Lane and Howdale Road.
Safe Place Scheme
People who feel lost, confused or frightened can now seek help from Sewell on the go staff after the business gave its backing to a new scheme supporting vulnerable members of the community.
Sewell on the go is one of the first businesses in Hull to join the Safe Place scheme, which is designed to help people who have a disability, dementia, or who are vulnerable in terms of being bullied, harassed, lost or confused, while they are out and about.
Staff have been trained to help with a range of issues which vulnerable people may experience, including transport problems and support they can offer if someone is hurt, ill, scared or lost. The Safe Place scheme is run by Humberside Police and supported by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, North Lincolnshire Council, North East Lincolnshire Council, and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, Keith Hunter.
Fitmums and Friends
Sewell on the go has sponsored Fitmums and Friends in various ways.
This includes offering our forecourts as safe havens for members on their running routes, ensuring they have access to toilets, water, defibrillators and help if needed.
We have previously sponsored cycling kits for Fitmums and Friends, as well as providing snacks and drinks for their Coast to Coast cycle in July 2016.
Hundreds of meals for people in crisis
Almost 700 meals were made available to people in crisis after Sewell on the go staff and customers collected £1,000 of food to help make a difference at Christmas.
Collection points were put in place at Sewell on the go stores in Chanterlands Avenue, Sutton, South Cave and Hull West on the A63 at North Ferriby to gather donations for Hull Foodbank, which provides nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people referred to the charity in crisis.
A total of 283kg of donations were collected, which the charity said is the equivalent of 670 meals.
Additional stock was donated to the charity in February 2018.
