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

With our current management structure in place we have continued to grow from strength to strength expanding into our current premises in November 2007 to maximise our efficiency.

KIDS support over 15,000 disabled children, young people and their families every year by delivering over 120 services throughout England. KIDS is unique; there is no other organisation dedicated to providing such an extensive range of services to disabled children and young people, aged 0-25 years, irrespective of their impairment or condition. If you would like to make a contribution, big or small, to this great charity please visit or Text AWLN55 with the amount you wish to donate to 70070, we are very grateful for all monies received.

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. 

Citadel top ten 

To celebrate the Citadel's 30th Birthday and to support the St Helens community arts programme the Citadel Top Ten was launched. Steve Caunce Limited made a donation to the Citadel to help support the work that they carry out with young carers and isolated elderly people in the St Helens area. 

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.

Moving to the present day Manager Lee Jenkinson now has a settled first team squad and with the club having endured seven years of a nomadic existence, ground sharing at Ashton Town, Ashton Athletic and Prescot Cables the excellent 3G facilities at Ruskin Drive are now up and running backed up by a strong development system featuring under 18s, under 21s and reserves managed by a top class coaching team St Helens Town are looking forward once again to a great future - Good Luck!
