All the businesses around the Samworth Brothers’ Group are actively engaged in supporting local and national charities through fundraising and volunteering. Many have long standing relationships with their chosen charities, and have raised thousands of pounds and given many hours of time to support their causes.
Taking place every two years, the Samworth Brothers Charity Challenge is a triathlon-style event that raises funds for our communities, while engaging our staff, customers and suppliers in an event that is both enjoyable and extremely challenging. It involves a gruelling mountain bike ride, a canoe race and a mountain walk.
The family-owned flour miller, Heygates Limited, has been supplying flour to Walker & Son for over 20 years. Its Alpha Flour – developed especially for Walker & Son – is used in all our cold pie recipes and its special culinary flour goes into the short crust pastry of all our hot pies.
Samworth Brothers Ltd operates nine food bakeries and one distribution centre in the Leicester and Melton region.
