£2K donation for local life-saving charity

Burton-based leading roof tile firm, Russell Roof Tiles, has donated an impressive £2,000 to a life-saving charity, as part of its continued dedication to supporting the local community.

Like many businesses, Russell Roof Tiles has felt the damaging impact of Covid-19 but is committed to continue supporting local causes.

Employing 90 staff at two sites on Nicolson Way and Wetmore Lane, the manufacturer has donated £2,000 from its Community Fund to support Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity.

The charity delivers outstanding care for local people, bringing together the expertise of over 18,000 staff across five hospital sites in Derby, Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth. Each year, the trust provides funds that improve patient welfare, equipment, research and staff training.

Russell Roof Tiles’ Community Fund  was launched in 2018. It is a communal pot which benefits local charities and groups who receive a share of money to support the great work they are doing in the community. Some organisations to benefit include Staffordshire. Shropshire. Cheshire Blood Bikes and Hillfield Animal Home.

Staff from Russell Roof Tiles have cooked, swam and volunteered to generate cash for local charities and since 2015 have raised over £80,000 with support from its customers, suppliers and staff, friends and family.

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 industries due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still able to offer our support to Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity. 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.”

Tim Diggle, Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity Director added: “We are so grateful for this really generous donation. It is brilliant to see such fantastic fundraising in support of our hospitals. We know that the money raised will go a huge way in supporting our staff  and we are so grateful for this gift – it means a great deal to us.”
