The Recycling Lives charity is delighted to announce that they have struck a partnership with Andrew Page for their unwanted and surplus work wear.
Andrew Page are one of the UK’s largest distributors of quality automotive components and workshop equipment. They have been an established business since 1917, and now have 109 branches nationwide, covering the majority of the UK. The firm will donate their used clothing and personal protective equipment (items such as protective clothing, helmets, and goggles etc) to the Recycling Lives charity, these donated items will then be used by the Recycling Lives residents and people working at the charity. The agreement will see a continual clothing donation throughout the year, with the first delivery arriving from Leeds at the end of January.
Dave Cole, Head of HR for Andrew Page said:
“Andrew Page has had a presence in the Lancashire Region for over 25 years and currently employing over 150 people in the surrounding areas. This relationship shows our commitment to help those out of work, by giving them the correct PPE to enable them to get on the job training and employment, that otherwise would be restrictive due to costs. This is a win-win for Andrew Page and shows our support in the local communities.”
Lisa Reed, National Health & Safety Officer for Andrew Page also added:
“This new relationship also helps us in meeting the Waste Hierarchy requirements at first tier by waste prevention.”
Neil Flanagan, Charity Director at Recycling Lives, said:
“We are so grateful to Andrew Page for providing these supplies, they will be put to good use by the residents and by anyone working for the Recycling Lives Charity. Thanks to the help of supporters like Andrew Page, we are able to continue the good work we do. Their current and future support will be vital and we are very appreciative of their support. Recycling Lives are committed to both our environmental and social impact, and with the help of Andrew Page, we can really make a difference”
