In a corporate partnership with the NSPCC, Midland Lead signed a commercial agreement, allowing £1 of every tonne of lead sheet sold in the months October and November 2007 to be donated to the children’s charity.
In early December Midland Lead signed a cheque for £5,000 and presented it to the NSPCC staff working at the Nottingham ChildLine call centre.
Midland Lead director Boudewijn Tuinenburg said, “The response we’ve received has been very heart-warming. We have even got some customers directly donating money and sending us cheques for the NSPCC.”
NSPCC community corporate manager Jenni Cowlishaw added, “We greatly appreciate the support of Midland Lead and the fantastic amount they have raised to help us to be there for even more children who have nowhere else to turn.”
