At Seniors we consider ourselves to be at the heart of the community that we serve, and get involved in all kinds of local community projects.
Our staff all live locally and we believe in
supporting local jobs for local people, and we buy as many of our supplies from local businesses
as we can.
We’ve also taken our fish road show into local primary schools to educate youngsters about the benefits of fish as part of a healthy diet.
Seniors have two main charities which we support on an ongoing basis.
We’re six months into a decade long pledge to raise £2500 a year for Red Marsh School at Thornton. Six years ago when the Thornton shop was built, students and staff buried a time capsule in the foundations which in the distant future to come will tell people all about the school, local area and the Seniors family of fish restaurants, when everyone is long dead and gone!
Throughout the year, staff at the shops carry out a variety of fancy dress sessions, wearing all kinds of appropriate or just downright strange clothes in an effort to make the customers smile and collect money. For example, during Euro 2012 the staff at Thornton wore England football kits in celebration of the England game.
Once a year a big event is held around Christmas, with a target of raising around £2000.
We also support various local fundraising activities throughout the year and raised £2000 in early 2012 for Thornton tot Finlay Jackson who has Door Syndrome.
As a whole company, Seniors supports the Royal National Deep Sea Mission.
