Russell Roof Tiles to donate £5,000 to Kenyan schools

Posted: Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

The Staffordshire-based tile manufacturer plans to raise money to help buy a new school bus for the Footprints Family charity, as well as heading to Kenya this summer to offer practical skills and support, Builders’ Merchants Journal reported.

Established in 2008, The Footprints Family provide food, clothing, shelter and healthcare to vulnerable children and young people on the south coast of Kenya.

Russell Roof Tiles started supporting the charity five years ago when its staff raised £1,600 for Footprints with a walking challenge.

This year six volunteers from across the UK including employees and partners are joining together to raise £5,000 for Footprints, and travel to Kenya for a week.

From Burton, the team is Sue Gough, Coral Hayward, and Dawn McLoughlin and from the company’s sister site in Lochmaben are Debbie Allen, Gillian Moffat, and Jacqui Summers.

Family Footprints founder, Kerry Wanjala first visited Kenya as a working volunteer in 2007.

Coral Hayward commented: “We’ve got a great team who are all committed to helping Kerry and this amazing charity which does such a huge amount to change young people’s lives. We’re all finding creative ways to raise money, like our first-ever comedy night in Burton.”
