Introducing the foundation

Launched on 22nd February 2018 at the symbolic home of our brand - the Tan Hill Inn - The Everest Lewis Golden Foundation will be offering up to £40,000 per year to aspiring individuals or groups achieve their ambitions.

Our founder

Lewis Golden was an incredible inspiration to those he met and when he set up Everest back in 1965, he soon saw his ambition of becoming the best double glazing company come to life. As a man who embraced every opportunity, our pledge is to honour Lewis’s dedication by providing limited financial support to help fulfil the goals of those with similar ambitions. So every quarter, we will select one application to sponsor in Lewis Golden's name, and give them the funding they need to work towards achieving their dreams.
