The Sir John Fisher Foundation
Local business activities.
The Group’s businesses are spread out all over the UK and internationally. Product and service procurement is site-specific which means many of our businesses are able to procure products and services locally to support the local supply chain, and sustain local jobs. Each business encourages and supports its employees to engage with local community projects that they care about and to make a positive impact on their local communities.
The Sir John Fisher Foundation (the Foundation) is a charitable trust founded in 1980 by Sir John Fisher (former Chairman of the Company, and grandson of the founder) and Lady Maria Fisher with the objective of distributing income, including from the significant shareholding in the Company retained by the Foundation’s trustees, to charitable causes throughout the UK, but with special regard to those based in and working for the benefit of people living in Barrow-in-Furness and the Furness Peninsula, where the Company is registered and maintains its headquarters.
