Charity wastes no opportunity to make savings

Sarah Smithson, operations manager at Stick ‘n’ Step, and Neil Curtis, managing director of B&M Waste Services.

LOCAL waste collection company B&M Waste Services has pledged to support children's charity Stick 'n' Step by assisting with its waste disposal costs at its addresses in Wallasey and New Ferry. The support has been offered after it was made apparent that some children who attend Stick 'n' Step also benefit from the services at Claire House Children's Hospice, 1 of B&M Waste Services' nominated charities.

B&M Waste Services is a family run business based in Wirral. The company takes pride in supporting local charities, and giving back to the local community has formed a big part of its ethos over the years. Until now, B&M Waste Services has been providing a commercial waste and recycling disposal service to Stick 'n' Step at its centre in Wallasey and its charity shop in New Ferry. As a charity that relies entirely on grants and community and business support to fund its £350,000 annual running cost, Stick 'n' Step is always exploring opportunities to streamline costs. The new support from B&M Waste Services is expected to help the charity make an annual saving of almost £3,000, which is about the annual equivalent of one child's place at Stick 'n' Step.

Stick 'n' Step provides specialist conductive education and support services to 70 children with cerebral palsy and their families and carers across the North West of England and North Wales. Conductive education is a non medical based developmental aid, which promotes independence for those with conditions like cerebral palsy, and is not offered by the NHS. It helps young people to learn new skills such as head control, moving around independently, sitting unaided, walking and more. At Stick 'n' Step children learn for themselves how to do all of these things, whilst making friends and having fun. Elsewhere, parents can expect to pay around £3,500 per child, per year for Conductive Education. At Stick 'n' Step, it's free.

Commented Neil Curtis, MD of B&M Waste Services: "We could see that Stick 'n' Step is doing fantastic work and we know how important it is that their offering remains free of charge, to allow more families to use such an invaluable service. It is with gratitude for the great work that Stick 'n' Step does that we have offered our support. We hope our support will make things a little easier so that the charity can free up some funds to continue with the good work that it is doing."

Commented Clare Ashworth, a fundraiser at Sick 'n' Step:- "Support comes to us in different forms, each of equal importance. We always welcome the varied and new ways in which businesses think to help. Staff volunteers, promoting our cause and donating goods and services are just some ways they do this. B&M Waste Services has offered us a significant solution to help keep our running costs down and this kind of support is invaluable."
