Every Skip has a Silver Lining…

A Gwynedd based skip hire company has pledged to donate money to precious causes across North Wales for anyone who wants to hire one of their exclusive and limited silver skips.

Gwynedd Skip & Plant Hire Silver Skip

A couple of months ago, during a brainstorming session about how the company could effectively invest in its community, one of its directors, Stacey O’Grady-Pritchard, thought that a great way to do this would be for the Company to donate a percentage of the proceeds it makes from the provision of skip hire services to local charities –enabling the Company to make charitable donations whilst also giving its valued customers an opportunity to participate in the process.

Stacey explained:

“Whilst looking for a suitable local charity to support, I came across a number of charities which were equally worthy. It was during this difficult task of trying to choose one amongst the many that it occurred to me that the Company could support more than one charity and that we could engage our customers in the initiative by giving customers the choice of which charity the Company’s donations should go to.”

“We’re a local business which values the community in which we operate and want to show our support. We felt that the Alaw Ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd through the NHS charity Awyr las was a worthy cause, as one of our three chosen charities alongside North Wales Wildife Trust and GISDA.”

Jackie Jones, Alaw Ward Sister, explained how they spend charitable donations on the ward

“The money raised will help to fund a range of different enhanced experiences for patients with cancer such as birthday cakes for patients receiving long term care, daily newspapers for patients, overnight accommodation for a patient’s family to stay close to their loved ones, as well as bespoke wigs and new medical equipment for the ward. We would be so grateful for any pledges through the silver skips scheme”

Cath More who develops business partnerships for Awyr Las says:

“We are so grateful for all of the support we receive through the charity, Awyr Las and are delighted to partner with community investment schemes alongside local businesses such as Gwynedd Skip and Plant Hire. We look forward to supporting this unique business initiative”
