A wonderful, generous donation from Russell Roof Tiles

Burton Soup Kitchen was overwhelmed to receive a hugely generous donation of £7,400 from Russell Roof Tiles. The Burton-based company employ a team of 150 and manufactures a range of concrete roof tiles and fittings and an extensive range of dry fix and dry ventilation products suitable for use on both new and refurbishment projects all designed to meet current building regulation requirements.

Gary Steen, BSK Chairman commented, "We were truly overwhelmed to receive such a generous donation. This amount of money will help us to fund the running of BSK for a significant period and we cannot thank them enough".

Russell Roof Tiles has spread the festive cheer by donating £7,400 each to 10 local charities this Christmas. Each of the charities, five close to each of its sites in Burton and Lochmaben were nominated by staff. The recipients are Burton and District Mind, Burton YMCA, Young Ones Burton, Burton Soup Kitchen and Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes, D&G Canine Rescue Centre, Veterans Garden, The First Base Agency, Moffat Mountain Rescue and Castle Loch Lochmaben Community Trust.

All of which support either the homeless, mental and physical wellbeing or animal welfare organisations.

The company’s Managing Director, Andrew Hayward, celebrated the work of the charities and handed out cheques.  The value of the donations came as a huge surprise to the charity representatives presents and was a record from the firm.

Russell Roof Tiles is wholly owned by Russell Building Products Ltd who acquired the business in November 2011. The company was originally founded in 1892 as Alexander Russell. Russell Roof Tiles was formed in 1986 to manufacture a range of concrete roof tiles and fittings.

Their products have been specified on projects such as a £44m regeneration project for Reading Borough Council, social housing for North Wales Housing, £22m Pannel Croft Retirement Village in Birmingham and a cutting-edge housing development near the former site of Glasgow Zoo.
