SKATEBOARDS, footballs, beauty boxes and helicopters are just some of the toys which will be landing in the hands of disadvantaged youngsters this Christmas thanks to ECF Special Alloys.
For the second year running the generous welding fabricators have offered their support to Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids, Mission Christmas appeal, buying gifts for children across the region.
ECF welder Tim Emm and his colleagues this year took their fundraising efforts to the next level and enrolled the help of fellow businesses at the annual Christmas party.
He said: “I wanted to raise even more money this year than last and knew the Christmas party would be the perfect place for this.
“I took a collection box around the tables and managed to raise over £287. I’d like to thank all the people at Mosborough Hall that night who made it possible to more than double our target.”
The money was spent on gifts for boys and girls of all ages and delivered to delighted workers at Hallam FM.
ECF Director Peter Elliott, said: “I’m so proud of the lads for once again supporting a great cause this Christmas. I was very surprised when I saw Tim on the microphone at the Christmas party, it was a very valiant approach from him which was noticed by the other companies and soon reflected in the total he collected. Well done to all the team and Merry Christmas."
