Hole in one for roofing firm’s fundraiser

Published:  23 September, 2016

Russell Roof Tiles has raised over £5,500 recently at its annual charity golfing day, for its nominated charity of the year, Shropshire & Staffordshire Blood Bikes (SSBB).

SSBB is a charity offering an emergency volunteer service, providing urgent and emergency transportation of medical supplies to NHS Foundations across the region.

Andrew Hayward, managing director at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “The day was a huge success. Our aim for the whole year is to raise enough money to buy an additional bike for SSBB, which generally costs up to £10,000, and we managed to surpass half of that in one day.

“Everyone had a lot of fun and it was great to be able to get such a wide range of our customers together to enjoy the day with us and contribute to the fundraising.”

Staff from all three of Russell Roof Tiles’ factories have spent the year raising money for SSBB, hosting a variety of fundraisers including charity weight loss, a 20km bike ride, charity cricket and football matches.
