SEWAGE WORKS POUR MONEY INTO CHARITY
January 03, 2002
Each quarter Thames Water awards a health and safety award to a contractor working on one of its sites.
The latest went to MJ Gleeson Group Plc for consistently high safety standards.
To mark winning the award, the company was given £1000 to donate to a local charity.
Bosses decided to present the cheque to Wokingham District Council chairman David Swindells for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, the charity he has chosen to benefit from his year in office.
This is a national charity that trains dogs to respond to the everyday sounds that hearing people may take for granted, such as the ringing of an alarm clock, doorbell, telephone, smoke alarm, baby alarm or cooker timer.
MJ Gleeson Group project manager Tony Robinson handed over a cheque to Cllr Swindells on December 12.
Cllr Swindells said: "I am extremely grateful to MJ Gleeson for their contribution to my charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People."
