Local Causes to Benefit from £40K

Russell Roof Tiles has revealed the local charities and good causes that will benefit from its Give 4 Good project 2023.

This year the team has pledged to collectively raised £40,000 for local causes. Give 4 Good was created as part of the firm’s celebration of independence in 2022. This year its staff are ready and raring to get involved and fundraising in new and exciting ways.

Teams across the business have chosen the charities that they would like to donate to, and already have a list of events that will take place throughout the year.   

Recipients of the fundraising will include mental health charity Mind, Burton and District, who provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Russell Roof Tiles have fundraised for Mind before and Keri Lawrence, Development and Sustainability Officer, Burton and District Mind commented: “Russell Roof Tiles donations have helped to support in growing our holistic therapy, and enabled us to provide sessions to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.”

The other charities include:

Staffordshire, Shropshire, and Cheshire Blood Bikes 

Burton YMCA

The Young Ones Burton

Burton Soup Kitchen

Veterans Garden Dumfries

D&G Canine Rescue

 The First Base Agency

Lockerbie Wildlife Trust

 Moffat Mountain Rescue Team 

Andrew Hayward from Russell Roof Tiles comments “After such a successful year of fundraising in 2022, we wanted to continue to show our support this year. Our core value of supporting our local community, causes and charities is as important to our team and neighbours as it is to us. Since 2015 the team at Russell Roof Tiles has pulled together to fundraise for local charities close to their hearts and we pledge to do it again this year, with an ambitious £40,000 target.

“Over the past seven years we raised over £168,000, and I have no doubt that we’ll achieve it with the help of our customers, partners and suppliers.” 

The company has invested in charity support over the years, and since 2015 has supported over 38 different charities and causes local to its Lochmaben and Burton on Trent sites. It has hosted fundraising events, that have seen staff dance, hike, run, cook, paddle and even slim their way to raise cash. Over the years its Annual Big Quiz and its charity golf tournaments have raised some record-breaking amounts of cash.

Its first charity initiative of the year has already taken place, the weight loss challenge, to safely shed some Christmas pounds, just in time for a summer skydive!
