In a finale to their anniversary year, Russell Roof Tiles has presented a cheque for an impressive £8,000 at its recent fundraising football match for Help for Heroes.
Russell Roof Tiles’ charity football match was held at St Georges Park and was a fitting climax to the company’s 50th anniversary, which has seen the business and its customers raise over £18,000 for both Help the Heroes and Macmillan Cancer Care.
The recent charity match was made up of both Russell Roof Tiles staff and customers, including representatives from Avonside, SM Roofing, PJ Colours, Liberty Roofing, Bracknell Roofing, and Advanced Sites Services.
Other fundraising activities for Help the Heroes this year have included staff doing a Zumba fitness class, and a Russell Roof Tiles anniversary celebration in September attended by 200 guests, including an auction, hosted by BBC sports presenter, Garry Richardson, and raffle.
Dean Williams an ex-serviceman, who has several years’ service in the forces serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ireland, accepted the cheque from Russell Roof Tiles managing director, Andrew Hayward.
Williams said: “Help for Heroes is all about doing your bit, and this incredible dedication to fundraising by Russell Roof Tiles is a wonderful example of people rallying support and having a great deal of fun while they raise money for a wonderful cause.
“The money raised allows us to continue to rebuild lives, and we are truly grateful for this offer of generous support.”
Andrew Hayward, Russell Roof Tiles managing director, said: “It has certainly been a very special year for the business with so many customers, suppliers and staff all joining together to mark the 50th anniversary.
“It is fantastic that as part of the anniversary celebrations we have also been able to give something back to such great causes. Help for Heroes is a superb charity and provides essential support for the brave men and women in the armed service to aid their road to recovery.”
