Snows does good with decking

Published:  12 February, 2015

Snows Timber is donating anti-slip decking to Calvert Trust Exmoor’s adventure activity centre for disabled children and adults.

The company will make a donation of anti-slip decking for every 40m3 of its seven softwood SnowDeck varieties sold in this decking ‘season’, starting with immediate effect. Anti-slip decking will help visitors to Calvert Trust Exmoor get about more easily, and Snows is asking customers to help it reach – and exceed – its target.

The Calvert Trust provides disabled young people and adults with opportunities to try adventurous activities they may never have thought possible. From wheelchair abseiling to accessible cycling, archery, riding and sailing, the Trust’s guests are coached by qualified, experienced instructors, proving the centre’s motto: ‘It’s what you can do that counts’.

“Customers will know their decking order is contributing to something really worthwhile,” said Snows’ sales and marketing director Mark Bowers. “We’ll be having a totaliser and Tweeting regularly on progress.

“The Calvert Trust’s values of friendship, support and the desire to help people fulfil their potential matches well with our business ethos at Snows. In the trade we’re generously referred to as ‘nice people’. We’re keen to share this opportunity for some do-gooding with customers, making sales of SnowDeck serve a wider purpose. Together we can put something back into life by benefiting others.”
