Pruce Newman Shows Community Commitment

Norfolk firm Pruce Newman Pipework has presented a cheque for £15,000 to charity.

The Wymondham-based steelwork fabrication business had pledged to raise £10,000 via the EACH nook appeal business network.

It has now raised 150% of its target already, via various sporting events and fundraising activities.

Managing Director Graham Newman also ran the London Marathon in April – raising £6,000 in the process.

Graham said: “Pruce Newman are long-time supporters of EACH, as well as other local and regional charities. Over the last year we’ve made the decision to focus our fundraising entirely on EACH and I’m delighted with the contribution we’ve been able to make to the nook appeal.

“We couldn’t have achieved this without the backing of our staff, suppliers and customers, all of whom have been great sports and responded to every challenge we could conceive. They have freely donated their time, resources and money to our campaign, and I’d like to thank all of them for their incredible support and generosity.”

The nook appeal is a campaign to raise £10 million so that EACH can transform children’s palliative care for Norfolk, mainly by building a new hospice just south of Norwich in Framingham Earl.

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “Pruce Newman Pipework took so well to fulfilling their nook business network pledge and clearly had a lot of fun! The final amount raised is absolutely brilliant and we couldn’t be more grateful.

“Building of the nook started in November when the appeal hit £7 million. We’re now nearly at £8 million and it’s vital we continue receiving support from the Norfolk business community in the final stretch.”

Pruce Newman is a pipework and steelwork fabrication and installation company based in Wymondham. Established in 1970, the second-generation family business employs 140 people in the East of England and provides services to some of the region’s biggest companies in the oil and gas, energy, food processing and chemical sectors. It is one of 43 nook business network members.
