Plumbers merchants PTS got their best boots on to raise money for the NSPCC.
Staff from PTS branches in Tamworth and Aldridge raised £2,500 earlier this month after hiking 24 miles for the Company’s partner charity, the NSPCC.
Seven members of staff battled through heavy rain storms and coped with numerous blisters, all in aid of the charity which works to put a stop to child abuse. The impressive sum was raised via donations from colleagues, family members, friends, suppliers and customers, while local residents also gave money on the day, buying both charity badges and balloons from the team as they headed towards the finishing line at PTS Aldridge.
Mark Wallis, Branch Manager of PTS Aldridge who also oversees Tamworth, said: “The heavens opened early on to make the day a much bigger challenge than expected, so we welcomed the support of passers-by who donated money to our cause.
PTS named the NSPCC as its partner charity at the start of 2008. By continuing its money raising campaign, PTS aims to help vulnerable children and young people at risk of cruelty in the UK.
