The family-owned company are very passionate about contributing to the local community in which they operate in. As a trusted independent builders merchant James Burrell believe that it’s right to give back to local people.

They raised over £4,250 – a figure matched by the company, bringing the total up to £8,535. All money raised will be shared equally between both charities. 50% will go to Butterwick Hospice Care, a charity who aim to improve the life of those who have a palliative or life limiting diagnosis and support them to have the best life possible in the time they have left. And the remaining 50% will go to 4Louis, a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and the death of a baby or child.

Kelly Foster, Marketing Manager said: “We are delighted to be able to support such great charities. COVID-19 and the lockdown has made it difficult to engage in our normal fundraising activities, however we were able to raise a fantastic amount of money with the support and generosity of our staff, customers and suppliers. A huge thank you to everyone who helped along the way! Our chosen charities do such amazing work, we hope our donations will make a real difference to two very worthy causes”
