St James the Great Church
Steve’s local church, St James the Great Church Haydock, needed funding for various projects. Initially Steve Caunce Limited provided sponsorship of a marquee for outside events but after lead flashing was stolen from the roof the church needed thousands of pounds to be raised to carry out vital repairs; a donation by Steve Caunce Limited was made of prizes for fund raising events.
King George VI Park
Steve became chairman of the Friends of King George VI Park, Haydock following a sponsorship of prizes for the best logo for the Friends Competition at Legh Vale School. Living all his life in close proximity to the park he is keen to preserve and promote the park for the use of everyone living in Haydock.
Stroke Association – St Helens
Steve Caunce Limited make donations to the St Helens Communication Group for the Stroke Association. The Stoke Association is the only national charity solely devoted to stroke, both in the community and in funding research programmes. Without the support of general donations and raffle prizes they would be unable to continue the work they do.

Not only does Steve make donations to charities and groups throughout the North West he also gives up his own time to help mentor individuals looking to start their own businesses. Through St Helens Chamber Steve meets with people in the early stages of starting a business to provide encouragement and guidance about their business idea and helps them to develop a business plan.
