British Ceramic Tile supports the Air Ambulance Trust
British Ceramic Tile has pledged its support to the Air Ambulance Trust. The UK's largest ceramic and glass tile manufacturer has nominated both the Devon Air Ambulance and Yorkshire Air Ambulance as its charities of the year, with staff across the business coming together to raise funds for the publically funded charities.
Through a series of internal fundraising events and activities, the company has raised over £1300 for the charity splitting the funds between the two areas. Alongside monetary donations, British Ceramic Tile has also donated a standout project produced by Lego artist, Dave Hughes.
The manufacturer has gifted the sculpture titled '#Collaborate' to the Devon Air Ambulance with the belief its message of collaboration successfully represents the hard work and dedication behind the charity. Created by the famous Lego artist as part of last year's Clerkenwell Design Week the sculpture sees a group of people holding someone up to provide a visual representation of teamwork and collaboration, an image that resonates well with the charity.
Tracy Owen, from Devon Air Ambulance commented: "We love this sculpture. It represents our charity well, reflecting our vision, mission statement and values. Now, through an inspiring piece of art, the ethos of the charity is showcased bold and clear. We're delighted with this donation and all the funds the company has raised on our behalf."
Jayne Adamson, head of retail marketing and brand at British Ceramic Tile said: "We're proud to pledge our support to the Air Ambulance Trust. The cost to keep the trust up and running is phenomenal, so we'd like to think any contributions we make go someway towards supporting this fantastic operation."
British Ceramic Tile is the UKs leading ceramic and glass tile manufacturer. With three locations nationwide in London, Devon and Yorkshire, the company offers a design-led, market-leading portfolio of wall and floor tiles, supplying directly to national and independent tile retailers, housebuilders and specifiers, as well as exporting overseas.
