As a long-established family-run business, we at Kebur believe in supporting and connecting with our local community. Over the years we have helped a range of schools, clubs and charities with projects that bring the positive power of gardens to communities.
Kebur Community Challenge award – May 2017
We announced Fernhill School in Farnborough as our chosen winner of the Kebur Community Challenge 2017 (see below). Our donation of £2000 of garden materials has gone to creating a memorial garden for Stacey Burrows, who last year tragically lost her life aged 16, while running in Aldershot. We hope the garden will be a peaceful place for pupils, friends and family to remember this talented young student and runner who was an example to her peers.
Day service garden – May 2017
We were pleased to donate much-needed landscaping materials in May 2017 to our friends Parity For Disability for their local day service garden for people with profound and multiple disabilities. We think the garden looks fantastic.
Community Consideration award finalists – April 2016
Kebur attended the Eagle Radio Biz Awards at Great Fosters in Egham and where finalists in the Community Consideration Award.
Christmas jumpers for Parity – 2015
Kebur wanted to raise money for a charity local to us. We chose to do a Christmas Jumper Day for Parity which is based in Farnborough and Camberley. Parity provides services for those with multiple disabilities. All the staff at Kebur dressed up and sold some cakes and sweets to customer. We managed to raise £155.35 for Parity!
Supporting Phyllis Tuckwell – 2015
In 2015 Kebur took part in a number of charity events, one included raising money for Phyllis Tuckwell’s Trade Fortnight. For each bag of cement sold Kebur donated 10p to charity. At the end of the two weeks the staff tallied up the cement sold. Cliff, Tony, Ellie and Christine (pictured) handed over a cheque for £250.00 to Paul Peason from Phyllis Tuckwell!
