Purchasing one van and a jetting machine they worked from their dining room at home.

Our Community

Steve Caunce Limited sponsor and support many different charities and groups within the North West area. 

Dementia Cafe - St Helens

In August 2019 Steve Caunce Limited have teamed up with the Dementia Cafe based at The Gerard Arms in St Helens. The cafe offers people with dementia and their carers a space to socialise in a safe and friendly environment. The group is ran by dementia trained volunteers and is on every Friday morning with activities plus free drinks and biscuits. Steve Caunce Limited are hoping to support the group over the next 12 months with their Friday morning groups and any bigger events that they may have planned.


A keen Baritone player for many years, Steve is always ready to help in any way he can to assist, making donations towards the cost of instruments, competition entries even finding locations and seating for rehearsals. Steve Caunce Limited have recently pledged a donation to Wingates Band that will allow them to perform a fund raising concert at St Georges Hall, Liverpool April 2016 in aid of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

10K Running team

Steve Caunce Limited have their own running team that compares in local North West 10k runs attempting to complete at least one every month.

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. Steve has also made a donation to the St James Beavers and Cubs group this year.  

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. As part of the company's commitment our Assistant Manager, Dominic, opened the 2018 Step Out for Stroke Day. 


For the first time this year Steve Caunce Limited are sponsoring the under 13s of the Portico Vine ARLFC Panthers. The local community team now have a new playing kit for the squad with the sponsorship allowing the club to operate and support the children as they continue to grow as people and as rugby players. 


Every year Steve Caunce Limited take part in the annual Jeans for Genes day. The staff wear their jeans and bring in a donation to help improve the lives of children with life altering genetic disorders. There are half a million children in the UK living with a genetic disorder and the money raised goes towards care, equipment and activities for the children in need.

Save the children 

Every year the staff take part in the Save the Children 'Christmas Jumper Day' were they make a donation and wear their Christmas Jumpers. The money raised then helps children around the world bringing essential health care, education, protection and food to millions who are missing out on these basics.
