Supporting the community

We are committed to supporting the local communities in which we operate with donations of time, money and materials. 

Over the last few months, employees at Ketton works have remembered former Works Fitter David Young with donations of £250 to two of his chosen charities, Age UK and Mutts Nuts animal rescue.  

David, 64, who died earlier this year, was a shift operator who lived in Uppingham but was originally from Ketton and had worked with the company for 47 years. 

Shift Manager Chris Munton said: “Characters like David don’t come along very often. He had a rapport with everyone he met and will be sadly missed by us all.”

The company has also continued its long-term sponsorship of the Stamford Kiwanis’ fireworks night, donating £1,000. The Kiwanis, a group of businesses in the town, raise £10-12,000 from the event, which goes to worthy causes in Stamford and surrounding villages.

In addition, Heidelberg Materials was the main sponsors for a quiz night which raised more than £2,000 for Bumps and Beyond, a Stamford charity which provides free equipment and clothing to parents and caregivers in the area. 

A donation of £5,000 was also given to the Lord Lieutenant of Rutland Sarah Furness’ appeal to raise funds for a statue of Queen Elizabeth II to be sited in Oakham.
