At Cooper Technology, we believe that every company, irrespective of its size, has a responsibility to the community and environment in which it does business. Being socially responsible and making a positive contribution to the local communities is integrated into the very core of our business objectives and strategy.
We recognise that sport can improve the quality of life of individuals and communities, promote social inclusion, improve health, counter anti-social behaviour, raise individual self-esteem and confidence, and widen horizons. In the past we have engaged with ‘Colts to Africa’, an organisation which gives youth footballers the chance, by sharing their love of football, to make a difference to the underprivileged children of Africa.
This year, we worked with Tibshelf Community School and sponsored team kits for their 20th annual football tour to the Netherlands.
