Fibrwrap UK shows its soft centre with Easter gift to Hull Charity | 30/03/2016
Fibrwrap UK, the international specialist in carbon fibre solutions for the construction sector, has donated 100 boxes of mini eggs to Hull’s Smile foundation for Easter.
With offices in Hull’s Argyle Street Industrial Estate, Fibrwrap UK found it a natural decision to make the charitable donation to local foundation, Smile – which helps disadvantaged children in Hull and the East Riding.
Smile is involved in a variety of projects, each different but with the same principle of developing a strong foundation to help families and individuals affected by a range of health and social issues.
Sarah Shepherdson, Business Administrator for the Smile Foundation, was keen to acknowledge the donation: “In a similar way to Christmas, Easter is one of those times of year when our children need to feel valued. We have had a bumper year so far, collecting over 600 eggs which will be donated to 11 different charities in Hull and East Yorkshire.
“We rely heavily on corporate donations, and do all of our own fundraising. Gifts such as this one from Fibrwrap UK are so special and make a real and immediate difference to children in our area. We would like to say thank you very much!”
Fibrwrap UK undertakes specialist projects throughout the country, with current work including complex commercial building projects in London and, closer to home, the strengthening of Peasholm Glen Bridge in Scarborough.
Andy Carroll, Operations Manager at Fibrwrap (Special Works), said: “We were delighted to make a gift to Smile foundation this Easter. It’s a wonderful local cause and because it is dependent entirely on donations, we were happy to make Easter that little more special for local children.”
