Russell Roof Tiles is the largest independent manufacturer of concrete derivatives in the UK pitched roofing market, employing around 140 staff.  

Given the extreme hardship caused by the global pandemic, Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles wanted to ensure that there were supporting as many community projects as possible. He comments: 

“2020 has been an extremely difficult year, but charities have gone above and beyond to deliver their essential services in the face of the pandemic and all the restrictions that came along with that. That’s why we are pleased to announce Russell Roof Tiles 12 Days of Christmas programme.”
