Powerday, the leading, family-owned waste management and recycling business, has collaborated with one of the largest family-owned construction businesses in the UK, Ardmore Group, to decorate a skip in honour of Children in Need mascot, Pudsey. The exclusive skip will be situated at the company’s Old War Office site in Westminster, London. All revenue generated from the skip will be donated to Children in Need, with additional donations made to the charity by both companies.
Bernard Byrne, Director at Ardmore Group, commented: “Children in Need does a fantastic job raising money for disadvantaged children around the UK and this year it is even more important for us all to come together and support such a fantastic cause. We’re proud to be partnering with Powerday and giving the Pudsey skip a home at our The Old War Office site.”
Edward Crossan, Vice Chairman of Powerday, added: “We can’t quite believe Tommy has volunteered to run more than two marathons in one session and I’m so proud that the rest of the Powerday team are really coming together to support him in this challenge, from our Joint MD, Liam Kearney cycling 106km over the weekend to our Health and Safety Manager, Shaun Howard running 20km. Everyone’s really doing their part. Ardmore is a loyal client of ours and we’re delighted to work with them in a fun way to raise money for a very worthy charity.”
In addition, Powerday’s Head of Finance, Tommy Leigh, is today single-handedly running 100km along with our Business Development Manager, Eamon Davitt doing the same distance but cycling – the equivalent of running between the company’s five sites. Waiting for them in the office will be the rest of the Powerday team who are aiming to double the distance between all their combined individual efforts by Friday.
