CSH Transport with Blackburn City Council, New Ground & John Everiss Design 2012 - 2015
CSH Transportís Stuart and Christine Haworth have worked to create art and inspiration in the local community by improving and sponsoring some of Blackburnís urban spaces. As an industrial region surrounded by some of the UKís most beautiful countryside some of Blackburnís inner-city have benefitted from regeneration brought about by John Everiss Design, New Ground (a social enterprise organisation operating in the East Lancs region) in association with Blackburn City Council.
In 2014 and 2012 CSH Transport sponsored the development of two sculptural landscape projects that both now welcome visitors exiting Blackburnís M65 motorway. John Everissís Reach Out design won a Gold at the Royal Horticultural Societyís Chelsea show in 2014 and now occupies a prominent area on the access road to Blackburn Royal Hospital. The 2013 RHS Tatton Park Gold winning landscape sculpture Natural Forces in Challenging Times is installed on the principal access point welcoming visitors to Blackburn Royal Hospital.

Fireflies and Fireflies West 2001 - present day
The Fireflies Tour was established in 2001 in recognition of relativesí and friendsí battles with Cancer. Five friends Ė Jake Scott, Adrian Moat, Nick Livesey (Directors at RSA Films), Tim Page (MD, The Quarry) and Chris Haworth (CSH Transport) Ė cycled from Geneva to Cannes to raise money for leukaemia research.
Over the last 15 years the ride has grown to hundreds of riders who have made the challenging journey from Geneva to Cannes across the high Alps ó raising a total of more than £1.7m for leukaemia research and treatment.
Following the success of the Fireflies Ride in Europe Bryan Farhy organised the Fireflies West ride cycling from San Francisco to Los Angeles again raising funds for cancer research. Founder of CSH Transport Stuart Haworth and his son Chris have both completed the ride, Stuart raising and donating five thousand pounds towards further blood cancer research and development in 2011.
4th Battalion, Parachute Regiment 2015/16
In 2015/16 CSH Transport has been proud to be an equipment sponsor to the 4th Battalion Parachute Regiment ski team. The 4 Para ski team is perhaps the most successful of Infantry ski teams and has proven success over many years both at an individual and team level in British Army Skiing.
An entirely new team came a very creditable second overall out of some 300 competitors at the British Infantry Championships in the French Alps, Jan. 2016. The aim of skiing in the army is to enable officers and soldiers alike to compete, face new challenges, such as skiing at up to 80mph, and also to develop independence along with team building skills for each soldier whilst based in a foreign country.
The present day Battalion is the successor to several Parachute Battalions which were all raised in 1947, although it can trace its history back to units raised during WW II.
