Garador Supports Charities at Christmas

Published:  21 December, 2017

Employees at Yeovil based garage door manufacturer, Garador, have been busy in the run up to Christmas.

Over the last few weeks, the staff at the company have been setting time aside to support local charitable organisations, with a donation of food to Yeovil food bank, The Lord’s Larder, and a financial donation to St Margaret’s hospice in Yeovil.

During November and early December, food donations were gathered from staff across the business. A variety of dried and tinned products were given, including peas, beans, cereals, pastas, tomatoes and much more.

Garador’s Managing Director, Simon Hipgrave said: “I’m really pleased with the variety of food donated by the team here at Garador; everything from rice and beans through to tinned vegetables has been donated. The Lord’s Larder provides a great service in Yeovil to those in need and we are delighted to support them.”

With the food drive over, Garador continued its charitable efforts during early December with a Christmas raffle for Garador staff, Christmas jumper day and a skittles evening with all the proceeds going towards St Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil, who provide care and support to terminally ill patients and their families.

Over £285 was raised from the raffle, Christmas jumper day and skittles evening, with great generosity from the staff at Garador. Local companies donated prizes ranging from chocolates and bottles of wine through to a power washer.

Garador’s Managing Director said:“We would like to thank all of the companies that donated prizes, which helped us to run a successful raffle and most importantly, raised lots of funds for St Margaret’s hospice.”

Garador would like to thank Yeovil Buildbase, Yeovil Town Football Club, Wincanton Race Course, Jungle Jungle, Falmer Palmers, Yeovil Hobby Craft, The Manor Hotel Yeovil and Brimsmore Garden Centre Yeovil for their generosity for such a worthwhile cause.
