Tarmac support Amelia Trust Farm with donation of cement

May 13, 2021

Tarmac’s Aberthaw cement plant in Wales has donated over 70 bags of Blue Circle cement to the Amelia Trust Farm, a charity which helps disadvantaged young people gain skills, confidence and experience to help them move forward at a critical time in their lives.

The cement was used for various improvement projects around the site, including posts for a new sign, pothole work, fencing and new gate posts.

The farm, which opened 30 years ago, is a countryside sanctuary for the local community to enjoy and is home to a variety of animals from rabbits and ferrets, to pigs, alpacas and donkeys.

Neil Hardy, site manager at the farm said: “The ongoing support from Tarmac Aberthaw has been vital these last few years. The latest donation couldn’t have come at a better time – there was a lot of work to be done around site!”

Stuart Escott, plant manager at Aberthaw adds: “Our partnership with this fantastic local charity goes back many years and it was a pleasure to be able to support them in such a practical way once again. I very much hope they can now get back to the farm being fully open for both the visitors who enjoy a day out there, and for the young people who benefit from attending the farm as an alternative school.”
