Supporting Our Local Community Centre
Here at DriveWorks we enjoy being part of the local Thelwall and Warrington community and we believe that it’s really important to support others in the community whenever we can.
We are proud members of Cheshire & Warrington Growth Hub and the Warrington Business Exchange. We work with local schools, colleges and universities to inspire the next generation and help them with work experience opportunities, careers advice and certifications to help them get ahead.
Over the years we have completed lots of fundraising activities to support our community too. Our annual charity bake sales raise money for local charities, we’ve fundraised for a defibrillator to be fitted on-site for public use, supported a local dementia care home, planted trees and now we are supporting Thelwall Parish Hall.
Thelwall Parish Hall
Just around the corner from DriveWorks HQ in Thelwall, Warrington is Thelwall Village Parish Hall, a facility that is used by many residents of Thewall and surrounding areas and a key part of Thelwall’s community’s heritage. Used by members of the community, local societies and community groups such as Bridgewater players, Thelwall Morris Men, Ferry Link Club, Thelwall Preschool, Thelwall WI, Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, and exercise/fitness classes. The hall provides a space for all ages to enjoy.
As well as the clubs and societies the hall holds events throughout the year including; jumble sales, neighbourhood watch and local police drop-in sessions, bonfire nights with firework displays, Thelwall Rose Queen festival, coffee mornings and lots more.
In recent years, the Parish Hall has had a significant investment to keep the hall operating so that the community can continue to enjoy it in the future.
The Parish Hall Management Committee embarked on a programme of works to modernise and regenerate the structure and facilities.
Early in 2019, the Parish Hall Management Committee received planning permission to resurface the Parish Hall car park.

Plans for the resurfaced car park
The project will cost the Parish Hall a total of £62,000 of which they are £15,000 short. We want to help them raise the remaining funds they need and encourage other local businesses and the local community to help too.
Once finished, the resurfaced car park will provide spaces for 72 cars with no more puddles or bumpy surfaces.
Supporting Our Local Community
We have donated to the cause and will be continuing to work with Thelwall Parish Hall, local businesses and the community to raise the funds needed to finish the car park.
Every year at DriveWorks, we raise money for charities and the local community. Previously, we have raised money for charities such as local charity St Rocco’s, Bliss for babies born premature, Macmillan Cancer Support, Cancer Research UK, the Alzheimer’s Society and even funded for a defibrillator to be fitted on-site!
This year we will be helping Thelwall Parish Hall with fundraising for their car park resurfacing project as well as some physical activities such as tree planting at the Parish Hall during the spring.
