Hudson was founded a quarter of a century ago and is marking the occasion by donating to good causes, including the financial sponsorship of 25 apprentices for 25 of its clients.

Dave Jackson, founder and chairman, said: “Charity begins at home and as a successful local company we are proud to be supporting local charities and their important work in East Yorkshire.

“We believe businesses have a wider responsibility to society and encourage other companies to give something back to their communities.”

Hudson, which supplies professional services to the construction industry, supports a number of good causes in Bridlington.

To date it has sponsored 170 construction apprentices and a full-time youth development officer at Bridlington Rugby Union Club.
