Mansfield timber firm announce new charity partnership

STAFF at Howarth Timber & Building Supplies in Mansfield have announced a charity partnership which aims to raise thousands for disabled children living in the area.

The Chesterfield Road North builder’s merchant is the latest branch of the Howarth Timber Group to support Caudwell Children, which provides practical and emotional support for disabled children.

Staff at the branch will be taking part in different fundraising events over the coming months in a bid to support the charity as well as their local community.

Mansfield branch manager, Andy Morrison said: “As a charity Caudwell Children are a breath of fresh air; they are a national charity that cares about local communities.

All of their management and administration costs are covered by an annual donation, meaning that all of the money we raise will go towards helping children in our area and to me nothing could be more important.”

Fundraising events will range from a 12 hour walking challenge to branch coffee mornings as employees are encouraged to get involved in various fundraising activities whilst finding out more about the work of the charity.

Caudwell Children already have a strong presence within the Mansfield area, having supported families from the area throughout their 13 year history.

Head of Public Relations, Ben Sutcliffe, said: “We are all very excited to be announcing this long term partnership with the Howarth Timber Group. With branches in 28 different locations, the partnership provides us with the opportunity to really connect with local communities and spread the word about the help Caudwell Children can provide for families with disabled children.”

Howarth Timber and Caudwell Children will be joining forces for the next three years. All of the money raised by the Mansfield branch and its employees will allow the charity to continue providing practical and emotional support for children within area. To date Caudwell Children has provided services worth over £23 million to thousands of children with nearly 500 different medical conditions.
