Celebrating 100 years

Carpenter Box celebrates its 100th birthday

Thank you for helping us celebrate 100 years

To celebrate our 100th birthday, our goal for the year is to give back to the community we’ve been a part of for 100 years. With the help of corporate donations and fundraising events throughout the year, we raised more than £82,000 this year for our own Carpenter Box Charitable Foundation. The charity supports small, local voluntary and community groups that are active in the Sussex area.

All profits raised during the year were donated to the CBCF, with funds going directly to local charities and organisations.

Our primary beneficiaries

Crawley Open House
Turning Tides
Red Balloon Worthing
