Tarmac continue partnership with NEWSAR
Company commits to further year of support for North East Wales Search and Rescue
TARMAC have committed to another year supporting a vital emergency service in Wales. The company has donated £12,000 to North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) towards the upkeep and running costs of one of its emergency Land Rovers.
The donation continues a long relationship with NEWSAR, which has worked with Tarmac to develop emergency quarry evacuation plans for all of the company’s quarries in North Wales.
The volunteer-led organization operates across north-east Wales and covers Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy, Wrexham and Powys, and regularly assists mountain rescue teams in North Wales, as well as lowland search and rescue teams in Cheshire and Shropshire.
Tarmac production manager Rob Maurice-Jones said: ‘We are really pleased that we have been able to continue supporting NEWSAR this year. The work the volunteers do is of the utmost importance and we appreciate everything they do to keep the people of North Wales safe.
‘We work closely with NEWSAR to carry out joint visits to local schools and groups in the area to give talks on the dangers of playing in quarries and deep water, and we hope our donation towards the running costs and upkeep of this vehicle will help them continue the vital work they do in our community.’
Gill Brailsford, NEWSAR’s fundraising officer, added: ‘We’re delighted with Tarmac’s donation towards the running costs of one of our fleet of Land Rover emergency vehicles. Without the support of companies such as Tarmac, we simply could not reach those most in need.’
