Giving Back to the Community

Cathodic Protection Co Ltd has been established in Grantham for 66 years, and most of the staff are from the Grantham area.  So it was fitting that the company wanted to give something back to the community that has been home since 1950.

Last Christmas the company was given a gift of an iPad from a supplier, which was raffled off to Grantham staff to raise money for local charity.  And today Managing Director Rob Holden was delighted to hand over a cheque for £190 to Grantham & District Poverty Concern’s founder, Ruby Stuckey.

The charity was established in 2001 following concerns about the number of homeless people in the area who were hungry and short of money.  Today, the charity works with five local churches to provide a day centre where those in need can have a hot meal, shelter, company, a listening ear and help in contacting agencies.  The project is funded entirely by public donations and by gifts of food and toiletries.  As well as the homeless and impoverished, the charity also works with elderly people who need immediate support because of circumstances they find distressing, such as inadequate heating.

Rob Holden explained, “As a company that has been established in Grantham for so long, it’s only right that we look on our own doorstep when donating to a worthy cause.  Ruby and her team of volunteers work incredibly hard to help those in need, and we are glad to help them in their efforts.”
