Altrad NSG supports Derian House Children's Hospice

Posted 10 December 2012

Altrad NSG has donated £1,000 to support a festive fireworks display in aid of Derian House Children's Hospice.

Mark Tipping from Altrad NSG has decorated his house in Cottam as part of an annual fundraising effort for his local children's hospice.

Each year Mark lights up his home with sparkling Christmas decorations, inviting the local community to the big 'Switch On'.

This year Mark decided to also hold a huge fireworks display for more than 400 visitors - and Altrad NSG was delighted to support the event.

Mark secured the fireworks at cost price from Cheshire-based Highlight Pyrotechnics and Altrad NSG donated £1,000 to pay for the display.

Mark said: "The night was absolutely brilliant. Everything went to plan. Our intention was to raise £2,000 and we got that before it even started. We took £2,277 on the night, so we're looking at nearly £5,000 now. A big thank you to Altrad NSG for supporting the event which raised money for such a worthwhile charity."
