Durapipe UK is helping to transform the lives of disabled and terminally ill children in Staffordshire.
The leading manufacturer of high performance thermoplastic pipework systems, which has its UK headquarters in Cannock where it has been established for more than 45 years, has chosen Newlife the Charity for Disabled Children as its charity partner for the next two years.
Durapipe will be making a corporate donation for each of the two years, in addition to staff fundraising and volunteering activities.
Newlife – which is also based in the town – is the UK’s largest charity provider of specialist equipment for children with disabilities and terminal illness and has supported 959 families in Staffordshire, with equipment in excess of £1million.
Durapipe UK Commercial Director Mitchell Holmes said: “When we found out about the work that Newlife does, we were blown away, they really do make such a difference to the lives of disabled children and their families. We have always looked to support our local community and the whole team is really excited about raising money to help such a worthwhile cause over the next two years.”
Newlife Deputy Head of Community Fundraising Chris Fielding added: “We are delighted to have the support of Durapipe UK. Every penny they donate will be spent on specialist equipment to help transform the everyday activities of disabled children. It is the support of organisations like Durapipe that enables us to build on our range of practical support services which make such a difference to young lives.”
