Hanson Cement’s Padeswood works near Mold has raised £2500 for their first ever charity of the year, Action for Children at their summer fun day. The cheque was presented to the leading children’s charity at their Arosfa short breaks service in Mold.

The leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry including aggregates, ready-mixed concrete, asphalt, cement and cement related materials celebrates its 70th birthday this year and is raising funds for the leading children through a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

Hanson Cement's Padeswood works manager Murat Burakcin said:

‘Hanson Cement, Padeswood are delighted to have partnered with Action for Children as our very first charity of the year and to have kick started our fundraising with an amazing family fun day at our Padeswood Cement Works. We have numerous events planned throughout the next 12 months to raise money for Action for Children’s projects based local to Hanson in North Wales. I am personally very excited to have committed to undertake a skydive with my colleague Mike Wilson in aid of the charity.’

Nikki Booth, Action for Children’s North Wales community fundraiser, said:

‘We were absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as Hanson Cement’s first charity of the year especially as they are celebrating their 70th birthday this year. This key employer in North Wales have already been very proactive in raising money for Action for Children and the fun day was wonderfully supported by staff and the local community. To have raised £2500 was a fantastic effort and we look forward to working with Hanson on further opportunities to raise money and awareness for our key services for children and young people across North Wales.’
