Roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles, has donated £4k between two life-saving charities in Burton on Trent and Lochmaben.
Since 2015 the company’s Community Fund has raised £80,000 by the support of customers, suppliers, friends, family and staff at its sites. Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity and Dumfries and Galloway Health Board Endowment Fund have each received £2,000.
Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity delivers outstanding care for local people, bringing together expertise of over 18,000 staff across five hospital sites. Each year, the trust provides funds that improve patient welfare, equipment, research and staff training.
The Dumfries and Galloway Health Board Endowment Fund supports the improvement of health and wellbeing of communities in the area served by NHS Dumfries and Galloway.
Andrew Hayward, managing director at Russell Roof Tiles said: “At Russell Roof Tiles, we are dedicated to supporting fantastic organisations that go above and beyond to help people in our communities. “We are thrilled that during a very turbulent time for many businesses due to pandemic that we are able to offer support to two charities pivotal in the fight against the virus. The money donated is important as it will go some way in providing a vital and lifesaving service that we feel privileged to contribute towards.”
