On Tuesday, November 6th representatives from Lane End New Beginnings and Amey visited Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to hand over a cheque for £4,310.40 to Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
Following collaborative working at Lane End Group’s Delamere site where the company is building 166 high quality houses for Laurus Homes, we enlisted the help of United Utilities’ contractor Amey to lead the alteration and diversion of three cast iron and steel water mains.
As part of the job Amey, with support from Lane End Contracts Manager Glyn Williams, replaced the mains that have supplied Liverpool, Widnes, Runcorn, Warrington and parts of Chester since 1890.
After completion of the works which involved an 80 foot-tall all terrain crane, the aging water pipes were weighed in, generating cash which Lane End and Amey wanted to donate to Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
Kate Harrison, Lane End New Beginnings CEO, said: “New Beginnings is all about reinvesting in the communities and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital benefits families from across the North West and is very worthy cause.
“We know the charity raises vital funds to help make the hospital a world-class, patient-friendly hospital for thousands of young patients and families they care for every year, so donations like this are crucial.”
Steve Hunt, Amey’s Business Director, said: “Amey’s vision is to create better places to live, work and travel and being an active and responsible member of the communities in which we serve is fundamental to that vision.
“Having previously worked with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital we understand how much they rely upon charity donations such as this to enable them to continue the unbelievable work they do for local sick children and their families. We are delighted to have helped.”
