High street builders’ merchant and STV Key Stockist, T.Brooker & Sons, has been awarded a Generosity Award from pest control supplier STV in recognition of the retailer’s charity contributions throughout 2014.
Over the past twelve months, T.Brooker & Sons has donated all the Core Club points earned through being a Key Stockist of STV’s brands, to Greenfingers.
Greenfingers is STV’s chosen charity and is dedicated to creating magical gardens for children’s hospices nationwide.
T.Brooker & Sons Buyer, Mike Benson said: “I am proud to have received the award. It’s the first that we have been awarded from a supplier. It now sits proudly in our head office reception for all to see.”
As part of the Core Club – an exclusive membership for retailers who stock the Core ranges from STV – T.Brooker & Sons had an option each quarter as to how to use the points earned from stock purchases.
Choosing to donate to Greenfingers was not a hard decision for buyer Mike Benson, who said: “Contributing to the charity is worthwhile and we will continue to do this – you never know what the future holds. It’s easy to donate through STV’s Core Club.”
Supporting Greenfingers for the second year running, STV has to date donated £2,118.64.
Lucy Cook, campaign coordinator at STV, said: “We are really pleased to be backing Greenfingers again and hope to raise just as much this year.
“We’ve been raising money through 5k and 10k runs as well as half marathons and company quizzes.
“It’s really nice to see Core Club members getting on board and supporting Greenfingers too”.
