As part of our Vehicle Safety Project, in an effort to promote a positive attitude towards vehicle safety and improve the reporting of vehicle related incidents, staff were encouraged to name each vehicle and nominate local charities; this was one of the charities selected.  Fertilisers introduced a scheme whereby each works vehicle would earn £1 for charity for every day it was not involved in an incident.

The result of last year’s good efforts by the entire department has given a much needed boost for some of our chosen charities.

Here a cheque for £3,650 was handed over by FMD Day Supervisor Tony Shone to Ruth Spicer, Vice Chairman from the Oasis Centre, Ellesmere Port.

The centre is dependent on volunteers to continue their good work; Ruth has contributed to over 25 years of voluntary work here.
