Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

A fun day held by Terex Trucks raised £2200 for St An­drew’s Hospice.

The Mother­well-based man­u­fac­turer of rigid and ar­tic­u­lated haulers held the event at their base in the town.

With over 1000 staff mem­bers and their fam­ily and friends in at­ten­dance, it fea­tured fun ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing face paint­ing, magicians, climb­ing walls, buck­ing bron­cos and many more fair­ground at­trac­tions.

Di­rec­tor and gen­eral man­ager of Terex Trucks, Paul Dou­glas, said:“our gala day is an op­por­tu­nity for us to in­vite our staff and their fam­ily and friends on site to have a fun day out as well as a way for us to say thank you for their hard work through­out the year.

“There was lots of in­ter­est in the fac­tory tours and we had fan­tas­tic feed­back from those who walked the shop floor. It is great to know that many peo­ple left know­ing a bit more about what we do here.”

A char­ity raf­fle raised £2200 for the hospice, with win­ning prizes in­clud­ing an overnight break at the Dakota Ho­tel Euro­cen­tral and lunch vouch­ers for the Moor­ings ho­tel in Mother­well.
