Cement manufacturer Lafarge Cement, landscaping manufacturer Marshalls and builders merchant Jewson have clubbed together to donate gifts to troops returning from Afghanistan.
Lafarge Cement’s northern sales team joined up with local branches of Marshalls and Jewsons to donate gift packs to the Second Battalion Yorkshire Regiment Captain Stephen Hall in a special ceremony on 23 March.
Lafarge Cement’s area sales manager David Lake and packed business manager Chris Hall led the initiative, collecting donations from colleagues and customers. Gifts included rugby tickets and a signed rugby shirt and a cricket bat.
Captain Hall, – who just happens to be Chris Hall’s brother – said: “We are grateful to Lafarge, Marshalls and Jewsons for their generous donations. The personal sacrifice made by the lads from the Battalion in Afghanistan is immense and a gift of any description goes a long way in showing them that the public supports them.”
