'Pulling Together' to Support Local Charity

The team at Murray Steel Products are delighted to be able to lend their support to a fantastic local cause, which will see a group of volunteers from the Tameside Rotary Club pull a canal boat 2.5 miles to raise money for the Anthony Seddon Fund’s ‘Lemonade Project’.

Murray Steel support the Anthony Seddon Fund

The challenge will take place on 9 July 2022 from 1pm, with the intrepid group starting their mammoth task of pulling the 2.5 tonne ‘Still Waters’ barge from Fairfield Junction, Droylsden to Portland Basin in Ashton-U-Lyne.

On board will be a number of Tameside Young Carers who will hopefully be able to enjoy a fun day out!

The event will raise both funds and awareness for a charity which supports mental wellbeing in the community, with the Lemonade Project specifically designed as an early intervention strategy to address a number of issues facing young people.

Murray Steel Products MD Tim Simpson said: “When we were asked if we would support this event, we jumped at the chance. Mental wellbeing is often overlooked, especially for the younger generation, so we’re delighted to be involved in a cause that is aiming to raise awareness and provide invaluable help to those that need it most. We wish them every success and will be cheering them on!”
