Cluster 16 recently got involved in a Lend-A-Hand at Areley Kings Allotments, Stouport on Severn, Nr our Kidderminster Plant. We were approached by ‘Chicken Mick’ Worrall who is a local fundraiser, (the reason they call him ‘Chicken Mick’ is because when he does his fundraising events he always wears a Chicken suit).
Mick gets involved in a lot of local fundraising and does a lot of work for the Air Ambulance. Mick approached CEMEX and asked us whether we could help him with creating some pathways around the allotments. These pathways were being created for easy wheelchair access to the raised vegetable patches.
Martin West continues: “Originally they wanted us to supply them some concrete free of charge (FOC). After speaking to Stuart Keighley we were able to help with their request. We also contacted a local Pump Company ‘Central Flow Screeds’ and they provided a pump FOC. We spoke to our IHC, Dave Watkins, who agreed to deliver the concrete FOC. On the day Simon Morris, Karl Megyesi and Mike Brannon all attended site and helped Mick and his Team lay the concrete for the pathways.
Now the paths have been completed it will really help the disabled people to look after their allotments. He thanked us for our and commitment and was also very appreciative of the concrete we had supplied to help with their project. When speaking to our guys they all said by taking part in the Lend-A-Hand they all felt good that they had managed to help the local community.
Well done guys and thanks to Simon Morris for his hard work in organising it all.”
