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.”
