Made in the Midlands raise £750 for Save the Children

Uncategorized

Made in the Midlands are delighted to announce that we raised £750 for Save the Children in celebration of Christmas Jumper Day. The money was collectively raised at our Christmas drinks celebration at Hotel Du Vin, Birmingham.

At the event, we hosted a charity raffle in association with Threeway Pressings, who regularly complete charity work alongside cancer charities throughout the year. Threeway announced that they would donate a Bullbarrow full of alcohol to the eventual winner of the raffle.

Managing Director of Threeway Pressings, Philip Stanley stated: “This is a fantastic achievement from Made in the Midlands members. We eclipsed last year’s total comfortably and it is great to show people that manufacturers are a very proud collective of people that do a lot for charity throughout the year.”

The winner of the raffle was declared as the Managing Director of Hucknall Sheetmetal, Jason Thorpe. Hucknall are a first tier supplier to the Aerospace Industries and also supply into the Transport, Environment, Energy, Food and Drink and Health Care sectors.

Made in the Midlands Managing Director, Jason Pitt said: “It is great to see Midlands manufacturers working as a collective for the benefit of a great charity in Save the Children. We all contributed towards raising £750 for the charity and we we will continue this competition as a Christmas tradition. It’s a brilliant time to have fun with the members and gives them a chance to win a great prize from Threeway Pressings.”

We would like to thank every member or non-member for their participation in our charity raffle for Save the Children. We would also like to thank Threeway Pressings for supplying the prize, as great local charity ambassadors within our membership group.
