Established in 2013 by Ray, Rose, David and Linda Grocott, the Trust provides support to charities and organisations in the community close to Grocontinental’s headquarters.
The Trust’s inaugural project was the funding of a new £1 million state-of-the-art medical centre in the North Shropshire village of Prees. The project was led by Ray Grocott who acted after the surgery in the village was threatened with closure following the retirement of the local GP whose home accommodated the previous surgery.
Opened in April 2015, the new practice includes consulting rooms, nursing space, treatment areas, dispensary, waiting room and offices. There is also space to accommodate future growth of the practice.
