Well done to Rebecca Rickaby, Commercial Administrator at CEMEX Marine, who has been working tirelessly during October and November making 50 Christmas puddings; hundreds of biscuits and many jars of mincemeat which she is selling and donating all the proceeds to hArt (Hampshire Art for Recreation and Therapy).
To date she has raised a whopping £308 for the charity and thereby qualifying to receive the maximum matched funding donation of £200 from the CEMEX Foundation.
hArt is a New Forest-based charity, established in 2014, which aims to improve the health and well-being of people of all ages and abilities through participation in the creative arts.
They are able to provide tailor-made projects and workshops for individuals and groups with specific challenges as well as offering sociable and recreational activities in a safe and non-judgmental environment. They offer a wide range of ways to deal with some of the difficult and traumatic challenges people face, as well as opening up enjoyable and relaxing ways to de-stress and have fun in an increasingly hectic and demanding world.
The top picture shows Lex Russell, Aggregates Vice President, picking up his (and Jesus Gonzalez’s) puddings from Rebecca and on the right is Matt Gheisari, Chief Mate on the Sand Fulmar, collecting the puddings for their on-board Christmas celebrations.
