Heanor Gate Science College donation from J Tomlinson
Derbyshire students are benefiting to the tune of £1,000
thanks to the cooperation of Futures Housing Group customers and the generosity
of J Tomlinson, the company that services and maintains their boilers.
J Tomlinson operates the maintenance and servicing contract
for the housing organisation, and each time the company’s staff are given first-time
access to a customer’s home to carry out work, the firm donates £1 to invest
into the community.
Now representatives from J Tomlinson’s repairs and
maintenance team and Futures Housing Group have presented £1,000 to Heanor Gate
Science College to be spent on new sports equipment for the academy in Kirkley Drive, Heanor, after the
success of the fundraising scheme.
“We are
delighted to be donating £1,000 to Heanor Gate Science College and would like
to thank customers of Futures Housing Group for their cooperation in supporting
the J Tomlinson team to carry out essential servicing, repairs and maintenance on
the boilers at their homes,” said Dave Fisher, operations manager at J
us first-time access helps us to provide the most efficient service that we can
and this donation represents a thousand times that we’ve been able to achieve
first-time access to tenants’ homes. At the same time, we’ve been able to raise
money for a good community initiative, so it’s a win, win situation all round.”
Dave was
joined by Futures Housing Group representatives Sharon Holmes, asset management
coordinator, and Jason Topley, gas surveyor, for a cheque presentation at the
at Heanor Gate Science College, Stephen Huntington, said: “We are very grateful
for the donation from J Tomlinson and would like to add our thanks to the
Futures Housing Group tenants who have supported this fundraising initiative
which will allow us to purchase sports equipment for our PE department.”
Topley, gas surveyor at Futures Housing Group, said: “The safety of our
customers is absolutely imperative and ensuring our boilers are regularly
maintained is a big part of that. J Tomlinson staff being able to gain first
time access to so many of our properties provides great peace of mind and also
saves a lot of time and energy. It’s fantastic that J Tomlinson have made this
donation and it’s great that a local school can benefit from our organisations
working together so well.”
