AN ENGINEERING firm is celebrating five years in business by launching a scheme to help a cancer charity.
NRH Engineering of Seaton Ross, who make agricultural machinery, have painted a pseical roller in gold to signal their support for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The firm will donate £250 to the charity for every roller they sell in 2011.
NRH company director, Bev Kendra explained: “Marie Curie Nurses are worth their weight in gold which is why we have built this gold roller.
“As well as donating from sales, the machine will also be making appearances at various shows and charity events throughout the year. We hope people will support us in this very good cause for the year.
“We would like to thank Peter Winn Tyres, Witham Paints, Hydraulic Pressure Services and Kramp UK for supporting the project.”
Cheryl Barrett, area fundraising manager for Marie Curie Cancer Care said: “We are incredibly grateful to Bev and the whole team at NRH Engineering.
“Their support is a wonderful example of how local businesses can enable Marie Curie Nurses to reach more local patients, giving them the choice of being cared for at home. We wish NRH every success.”
Funds raised from this initiative will allow more Marie Curie Nurses to provide free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.
Marie Curie Cancer Care provides specialist palliative care for local patients and gives practical and emotional support to families and carers at what can be a very difficult time.
