Our Community

Market Bosworth is a small, historic market town with a population of just over 2,000. Famous for the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, the town centre is a conservation area centred on a cobbled market square and surrounded by a number of fine old buildings. JJ Churchill is proud to have been part of the Market Bosworth community for 70 years.  Many of our past and current employees grew-up in the area and the success of our local community is important to all in the business. Company sponsorship activities focus around the twin priorities of local community needs and good causes with which our employees are associated.

Some of the varied areas of engagement have been:

  • Jack Oldacres’ Netherton’s Syndrome Fundraising Event – 2014
