Years of voluntary work in the local community have earned HASCAT Safety a nomination as finalist in a prestigious business award competition.

Bob Chandler and his wife Sue, who launched HASCAT Safety in 2005, have supported Keech Hospice Care for many years by developing and running zero-cost training days for their staff. Now this work has been officially recognised, with HASCAT Safety being a finalist in the Community Business of the Year category in the 2015 Business Awards organised by the Bedfordshire branch of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

“A lot of big businesses talk about corporate responsibility but we believe small business should also play their part,” explains Bob. “Keech does such incredible work and is extremely satisfying to know that in some small way we are helping others with the difficulties they face.”

HASCAT has recently started to support two other charities, Rennie Grove Hospice and Florence Nightingale Hospice, by supplying  training ‘at cost’.

But its community work does not end there; Bob is the chairman of LB Connect, Leighton Buzzard’s premier business networking group, which donates thousands of pounds to local charities every year.
