Plumb and Parts Center celebrates decade of fundraising

Published:  06 June, 2014

Plumb and Parts Center is celebrating after raising £600,000 for Action for Children.

As its 10-year partnership comes to a close and new charity partners are selected, the plumbing and heating specialist has handed over its final donation of £37,642.11.

Staff, suppliers and customers have all supported the charity drive in a number of ways, including sponsored walks, golf days and bike rides. Plumb Center even helped get the Action for Children logo on the Stenhousemuir FC away kit.

“We’re very proud to have raised this money for such a worthy cause,” said Plumb and Parts Center’s senior director Keith Jones. “Our suppliers, staff and installer customers have done a fantastic job, and we’re thankful to them for putting in so much effort.”

Emilia Carman, Action for Children’s head of high value fundraising, added: “Plumb and Parts Center’s fundraising efforts over the years have been fantastic and we’re immensely grateful for the dedicated support of staff and customers, which spans more than 10 years and has raised over £600,000 – a staggering total.

“This most recent cheque has been very gratefully received and will go a long way to help Action for Children give some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the country the chance of a more positive future.

“On behalf of everyone at Action for Children, and the thousands of children whose lives have changed for the better because of its support, we would like to say an enormous ‘thank you’ to Plumb and Parts Center.”
