Teams across the business, from its two sites in Burton to its one in Lochmaben, 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, which Russell Roof Tiles have fundraised for before.
Keri Lawrence, development and sustainability officer at 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, which provides urgent transportation of blood products for free to local NHS hospitals and Burton YMCA, which provides a supportive and safe environment for those who are homeless in East Staffordshire.
The Young Ones Burton, who Russell Roof Tiles has supported in 2021, and Burton Soup Kitchen, who support homeless and vulnerable people within the local community, will also be benefiting from the initiative.
Andrew Hayward from Russell Roof Tiles commented: “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.”
