New Local Business Raises Funds for School
Ten pupils and their teachers from GANF recently attended the official open day of a new, purpose-built builder’s merchant and kitchen and bathroom showroom – MKM Sleaford. They attended to represent Friends of Sandon & Ambergate (FOSA).
Branch Director, John Padley, presented FOSA with a cheque for £765.
Creating 21 new jobs in the local area, MKM Sleaford provides a one-stop-shop for all building products, including building materials, plumbing and heating, drainage and civils, insulation and plaster board, workwear and timber, joinery and sheet materials. There’s also a stunning kitchen and bathroom showroom and outdoor landscaping display, showcasing all the latest designs, colours and trends.
John Padley said: “At MKM, our aim is to provide the best service and experience to our customers. Another critical part of our ethos is making a positive impact on the local community. As part of this, the team has committed to raising funds for FOSA – the charity fundraising arm of Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF), which caters for children with additional and complex needs.”
John continued: “As a local independent business, giving back to the community and trying to make a difference is vitally important to us. We have two members of staff that have six autistic children between them and the work that GANF do to support them (and other local families) is second to none. This is a charity very much close to our hearts and we are delighted to be supporting them.”
The children also had the opportunity to meet Avengers’ characters on the day, with Batman, Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America keeping everyone entertained!
Courtney Gray, a teacher at GANF, said: “Friends of Sandon & Ambergate is an organisation which supports GANF schools. Fundraising from local organisations such as MKM helps us improve education and enrich the lives of our pupils. We were delighted to be invited to celebrate the opening of the branch and want to thank the team at MKM for their support.”
