IPS Ceramics shows the way

Posted by Liam Morgan on January 22, 2018

In recent months, IPS Ceramics has been running a dress-down Friday at its North Staffordshire headquarters, and all employees have been donating a £1 every week towards a rolling fund for a designated charity.

So far, £130 has been raised and on this occasion the sum has been donated in aid of the Guide dogs for the Blind Association.

Sales director Phil Green commented: “The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association does fantastic work and, as with the other charities we support, we’re delighted to help out in any way we can. The association commits to providing a guide dog for life and a guide dog owner may have up to eight dogs in their lifetime.”

There are now over 4,700 guide dog partnerships in the UK. However, the guide dog service receives no government funding and so it’s totally dependent on other sources of money – just one reason that IPS felt it was a cause definitely worthy of support.
