A Co Armagh company has helped a local charity in its efforts to support young people with heart conditions.
Huhtamaki employ 226 staff locally and are involved in the yearlong ‘Recycling Rewards’ campaign, alongside Encirc and Cherry Pipes.
All of them pledged to donate £1 to charity for every tonne of paper, glass and plastic collected materials through Bryson’s kerbside box collection service, which is delivered to 170,000 households across Northern Ireland on a weekly basis.
Huhtamaki is a world leader in environmentally friendly moulded fibre packaging, using 100% recycled raw materials. Collected paper is reprocessed into high quality egg packaging and cup carriers and is supplied to McDonalds and all the main retailers in the UK and Ireland.
As a result of their efforts, they have raised the fantastic sum of £4,300 as a result.
This will now allow the Children’s Heartbeat Trust to buy 10 CoaguChek Machines for congenital cardiology services at the Royal Victoria Hospital.
These specialist machines will allow teenagers and young adults with congenital heart disease to self check their blood INR at home – avoiding trips to their GP or warfarin clinic.
This will give them much more independence and control over their condition.
Congratulations and well done to all on this superb effort!
