As Saint Gobain celebrates its 350th Anniversary this year, the company has developed a monthly prize draw for customers. Here, names will be picked at random throughout the year, where either a bronze, silver or gold ticket will be won and exchanged for a cash donation to charity.
In February TuffX Processed Glass won one of the Silver Tickets which entitled them to donate £100 to a charity of choice.
One of the main reasons the TuffX team opted to donate its prize winning money to the MND Association, was due to an employee at the company having recently been diagnosed with the condition. MND is a progressive disease that attacks the nerves in the brain or spinal cord, which then results in messages slowly stopping to reach the brain, so the body then gradually slows down and wastes away.
Graham Price, Managing Director TuffX Processed Glass comments, “The MND Association relies almost entirely on donations in order to continue its research for a cure to the debilitating and cruel disease.
This year the Association is holding a ‘Jump Fest’ on 21st June as part of a Global Awareness Day and we wanted to give them our support for such a worthy cause and such great work. We also wanted to give as much backing as possible to one of our own team.”
TuffX Processed Glass is a leading glass processing company specialising in toughened safety glass manufacturing.
