Charity begins on site with Allied Glazing Systems

25th Jul 2019 | Posted In Company, Project updates

Allied Glazing Systems’ installation team has been on site at the build of Aflex Hose’s new factory, head office building and technical centre in Huddersfield since mid-June. Our customer is the Principle Contractor GMI Construction and they have an initiative to supporting the communities in which they work, the Allied team is very pleased to support this good work by donating much needed items to a local food bank, The Welcome Centre. The GMI Project Manager for all of the above buildings is Charlie Bagnall (on the right, receiving Allied Glazing Systems’ donation from Craig Mason) and he is coordinating support from GMI Construction and its’ various subcontractors.

The Welcome Centre is one of the largest food banks in the North of England and last year gave out enough food to provide over 220,000 meals to those in need. The charity provides not just food, but also toiletries and other essentials, along with much needed advice and guidance to help families at this particularly difficult time of year when children are off school and more support is needed.

Aflex Hose invents, develops and manufactures the widest, most technically advanced range of PTFE lined flexible hose products in the world. From raw materials to finished hose assemblies, its hoses and end fittings are manufactured at factories in the UK and the USA.

Craig Mason, an Allied Glazing Systems installer, has been on site installing windows to the first floor of the office building and was proud to hand over the food parcel on behalf of the wider team. Through donating a food parcel, Allied Glazing Systems hopes to offer relief to a family who needs it.

If we have inspired anyone to donate a food parcel to The Welcome Centre, here you will find a list of all the items which are in short supply. Find out more about the work The Welcome Centre does here and how it is helping families across the North England.
