Charitable and Green
Our activities in the community and wider world
At R M Smith Fencing Ltd we understand how important it is to support others and we enjoy giving help financially or otherwise to local good causes.
This year Janine’s son Mason (aged fourteen) shaved his head for charity and raised over £3000! R M Smith Fencing Ltd were very pleased to give Mason a donation towards that total – Murray Walker even made an appearance at the shave!
We are proud to have supported two Ringwood Comprehensive School pupils to visit Kenya to carry out work in local communities, and have supported the school with their Christmas Ball.
Three company members, Neil, Lorrae and Janine, undertook the Three Peaks 24 Hour Challenge with the support of R M Smith Fencing Ltd and raised just under £1500 for a local charity —what a fantastic sum! Janine also ran the Brighton Marathon and with further support from R.M.Smith Fencing Ltd, raised a further fantastic amount.
After being approached by the Ringwood Infant School, R M Smith Fencing Ltd every year provide the school with a driver and use of the lorry to allow the children to enter a float in the Ringwood Carnival. Floats have included a penguin float, a gnome float and a ‘Where’s Wally?’ float! What will they think of next?!
Each year we take a ‘tea date’ at the renowned Wimborne St Giles Teas, held every Sunday from March to October from 3-5pm, in the quintessentially English setting of the village hall in Wimborne St Giles. We have raised several thousand over the years we have been doing it! We have just held this year’s teas which were our best yet; we raised £700 and with the ‘match’ donation from Lloyds Bank Plc of a further £500, we were able to give £1,200 to Julia’s House in Wimborne.
WE’RE GETTING GREENER! At R M Smith Fencing Ltd we believe that the key to successfully reducing your carbon footprint is the same ethos as good business practice.
- Order only the quantities you need to complete the job
- Store and utilise surplus material on other contracts
- Minimise waste by forward planning the best and most economic use of materials
- Diesel vehicles use less fuel
- Recycle office waste—every piece of paper has two sides!
- Providing the best product for the customer means providing a product with longevity
But coupled with the above, we source materials from sustainable sources and local suppliers where possible.
