This group was created for young people who want to make a difference.ย  They cover the areas of Lower Grange and Allerton in Bradford. This Christmas the members of the group will be making and donating Christmas gift boxes to local children. FSS made a contribution of gloves, scarves, socks and hats which can be added to the gift boxes.

Across the country many families and individuals find themselves struggling for food.ย  The last 2 years have been particularly tough.

Bradford central foodbank is part of the Trussell Trusts network of foodbanks. This network works to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

In 2019 one of our Engineering staff, Carl Jones (a veteran of the forces), introduced us to his fundraising passion, โ€œHull for Heroesโ€. The group supports veterans and their families in a myriad of ways. Little did we know when we began supporting the charity that Carl and his family would need their support. When Carl passed away in October 2019 this charity were a godsend. We will never forget the kindness and support that they gave to Carlโ€™s family In memory of him and all the other veterans who work at Fuel Storage Solutions and everywhere, will always support this charity.

Hull for Heroes is currently working on building a dedicated Veterans Village (whilst continuing to support many former forces personnel and their families). One of its biggest supporters is Nick Knowles!

Linbee are โ€œAll about the Dogsโ€. They are a group of dedicated dog lovers based in Balne looking to provide dogs with a safe haven, prevent them from being destroyed and ultimately, find them a forever home. They believe that every dog deserves a chance. Between 2014 and 202 they rehomed over 600 dogs!

Pawprints Cat Rescue was started in 2012. It is a non profit making organisation in Bradford rescuing unwanted cats and kittens and providing them with veterinary care, food, love and cuddles! It is run by a small group of cat lovers who dedicate their spare time to rescuing cats. The volunteers take cats into their homes as emergency fosters, have stayed up until 3am nursing sick cats, drive up and down Bradford on their weekends attend reports of stray cats and answer a constant stream of messages and e mails. They do this all unpaid alongside full-time jobs and families, because they all want to see these cats off the streets and happy in loving homes.
