Ibstock is the UK’s leading manufacturer of clay and concrete building products one of the UK’s leading brickmakers and supplier of brick products, and joined as one of our corporate partners in June 2019.
They’re passionate about sustainability and are keen to work together with Shelter to help us fight homelessness, giving everyone the access to the right to a safe home.
Over the next 12 months, Ibstock plans to raise £50,000 for Shelter, with several of their employees taking part in the 2020 London Marathon.
Group Continuous Improvement & Sustainability Director Mark Brind said:
‘I’m delighted with the outcome and looking forward to formulating a strong partnership with Shelter. Community is a vital component of our Sustainability Roadmap; supporting and strengthening our communities, generating growth and opportunity is important for our future and homelessness is an increasing problem across our country.
We are uniquely positioned through our products, skills and fundraising to be able to make a difference.’
Shelter was chosen to become Ibstock’s partner by their team of charity champions. The partnership was launched with reception at Ibstock’s head office, with a celebratory lunch served by Ibstock’s CEO, Joe Hudson.
