BMRA "gives something back" after a good year

After what has been described as a good year for the industry, members of the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA) have passed on part of the good fortune to a UK-based charity.

                                    Brookes hands the cheque over to Goosey

Through a draw and champagne auction at its annual dinner, the organisation raised £5,589.80 which it donated to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).

BMRA president Peter Brookes said: The market has been good for most of us in the metal recycling industry over the past year. We feel its important to give something back.

BMRA members have a strong record in charitable giving. Last year we were able to donate £65,000 to two childrens hospitals, following a sponsored climb of Kilimanjaro.

The cheque was presented to NSPCC corporate and events manager Jan Goosey on a site visit to Brookes company N Brookes and Brothers.

She said: The NSPCC relies upon donations such as these for over 85% of its income so this is a fantastic boost to our fundraising and we are very grateful to the BMRA for supporting our work with children and young people.
