Our Patrons

Patrons support our work by providing vital funding for the annual Blue Patch Sustainable Business Awards and other projects.


The most critical issue of our time is climate change so we’re overjoyed that Thrive Renewables PLC is a gold Patron. Thrive Renewables safeguard the planet by connecting people to sustainable energy.

MD Matthew Clayton as to why they picked us: “Thrive Renewables exists to connect people to clean energy projects, providing a rewarding relationship with the UK’s transition to a cleaner, smarter energy system. We identify with Blue Patch’s mission to connect up vibrant, sustainable businesses across the country. We are both raising consciousness and empowering a growing community of individuals to bring about change.”

Naturesave Insurance, founded in 1993, is the UK’s leading green and ethical insurance provider. Blue Patch is delighted to welcome our very own insurers as gold Patrons.

“Naturesave’s ethos is to use insurance to promote sustainability, so we are delighted with our Blue Patch partnership and hope that we can help their community of creative businesses become even more sustainable” Nick Oldridge, Naturesave.

Naturesave insures some of the UK’s greenest homes, organisations and individuals. They have been awarded most ethical insurance company status by the Good Shopping Guide and are recommended by Ethical Consumer magazine. Their commercial activities fund their registered charity, The Naturesave Trust which, to date, has raised over £750,000 for green causes across the UK.




Hamptons International, established in 1830, is the latest Blue Patch Patron. We’re delighted to see the Planet Positive initiative, creating an office culture that’s forward looking and welcome them warmly as silver Patrons.

At Hamptons International, making a difference and ‘doing our bit’ is an important part of our business, which is why last year as part of our 150th year celebrations, we launched an internal initiative called Project Planet. This is our ongoing commitment to improving the impact we have on the environment – together we can make a difference.

Reliance Bank is a full service bank, but it’s also much more than that. As part of The Salvation Army, their mission is to serve customers and communities with compassion and integrity. They don’t see money as an end in itself. But do know that money has the power to change lives. In the right hands, it can be a force for good. This is why they became Blue Patch patrons, to support sustainable and social impact SMEs. In 2020 Reliance Bank sponsored the Blue Patch Social Impact Award.
