Russell Roof Tiles Brings Christmas Cheer to Charities

RUSSELL ROOF TILES (RRT) is bringing the festive cheer to charities close to its Burton and Lochmaben sites this Christmas by donating a total of £55,300 which it raised throughout the year.

The company presented a number of charities with a £6,300 donation at a celebratory event held at its Burton site, set to be followed by another event at its Lochmaben site.

The recipient charities are Burton and District Mind, YMCA Burton, Burton Albion Community Trust, Winshill Neighbourhood Resource Centre, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes, and Hillfield Animal Home – all of which support either the homeless, mental and physical wellbeing, or animal welfare organisations.

Charity Challenges

Over the last 12 months, RRT and its team of 160 took part in a variety of challenges for charity including a bake-off, golf day, football tournament, paddleboarding, firewalking, climbing, plus a sponsored haircut.

In total, the company raised a total of £55,300 for its Give 4 Good initiative, exceeding its target of £50,000.

Russell Roof Tiles Managing Director and creator of Give 4 Good, Andrew Hayward, delivered the presentation to the Burton charities, revealing they would each be receiving a donation of £6,300.

Liz Omahoney from Winshill Neighbourhood Resource Centre, said: “I can’t believe it, we’re in complete shock – £6,300 is more than we could’ve dreamed of, especially at a time when it’s hard for charities to stay afloat. Now we’ll be able to continue our work and run all the events and projects we do. From everyone at the resource centre we want to thank Russell Roof Tiles and all the team again for their incredible work, it truly means the world to us.”

Andrew Hayward commented: “We try and support a spectrum of different causes that are local to our sites and are carrying out critical care within our community.

“It was a pleasure to announce how much we’d raised, and we’re humbled by the response of those we’ve donated to this year. It’s been a tough one for everyone, but with a lot of hard work, determination, and support from not only colleagues, but our friends, family, customers and suppliers, we’ve helped make a difference to our community.”
