Hastoe sponsors Rural Community Business Awards

Hastoe was the headline sponsor the Plunkett Foundation's Rural Community Ownership Awards.


Hastoe was the headline sponsor for the Plunkett Foundation's Rural Community Ownership Awards on 5 December 2018.

Hosted by architect and TV presenter Charlie Luxton, the Awards were a celebration of the work of small scale community businesses to support rural communities across the UK. Hundreds of representatives from rural community businesses and organisations attended. 

As well as sponsoring the awards, Hastoe supported the People's Choice award, which was won by Bigton Community Shop.


Gavin Jones, Head of External Affairs at Hastoe Housing Association, said: “As England’s leading provider of affordable rural homes, we know there is much more to creating communities than just building homes. Community businesses often provide the only opportunity for people living in rural areas to come together. In providing work, volunteering opportunities and much needed services, they create the conditions for communities to thrive."
“The Plunkett Awards play a vital role in recognising many of the great projects, businesses and people who continue to make a positive difference in their community. Hastoe is extremely proud to sponsor the People’s Choice Award.”
