Wigan Plumbers Merchant Raises £5000 for The Brick

Plumbase in Wigan has donated £5000 to The Brick, and this year, the Plumbers Merchant is looking to raise even more money, with a range of fundraising activities planned for their staff and customers.


UK’s leading plumbers’ merchant, Plumbase, has 18 staff working from its Wigan branch, and for the second year running the team voted for The Brick as it’s charity of the year.


In addition to raising £5000, in 2023, from a range of activities including pie days, raffles, and stock sales, this year, the team are coming up with a host of innovative fundraising campaigns to raise even more money for The Brick.


Peter Jackson, Branch Manager at Plumbase in Wigan said: “We chose The Brick as our charity of the year, as it is important for us to support a local charity for local people. Our branch is in the heart of the Wigan community and most of our customers are also Wigan-based.


“We have seen first-hand the poverty and the devastation from the cost-of-living crisis and as a national company, we are in a good position to support the Brick.”


Keely Dalfen CEO at The Brick said: “We want to thank the team at Plumbase and all of their customers who have supported the Brick over the past year and we are delighted that the team have chosen The Brick as their charity of the year for a second year. The money raised helps people in crisis in our community and it enables us to continue to do the work we do. Without the support of local businesses, like Plumbase, we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to help families and individuals across Wigan and Leigh.”


Peter concludes: “We are extremely proud of our staff, their efforts to support The Brick, and the non-stop rallying and pushing for the funds that were raised last year. We are also proud of our customers, as they are always willing to get involved and are always willing to donate. 


“We are looking forward to doing it all again this year, and we are coming up with new ideas and more ways to raise the money that is desperately needed. We will push ourselves and we are hoping to smash last year’s amount that was raised, so watch this space!”
