Plumbco London Marathon Runners

If anyone had told Karl and Lucy (especially Karl) a year ago that they would be running the London Marathon 2018 and raising (to date) £10,010 for Leukaemia Care, they both would have laughed!

For those of you who don’t know Karl and Lucy, Karl (Howell) is a Plumbco director and Lucy is an integral member of staff at Plumbco’s sister company, Goodey and Howell. She works in the Wellingborough branch. Lucy is a keen runner, Karl… not so keen but shared one thing in common, neither of them had taken on the Marathon challenge before!

So what spurred the pair on?

After Andrew Goodey, managing director, dear friend and work colleague beat Leukaemia in 2017, thanks to amazing treatment that he received, it only seemed right that Karl gave something back to the right charity for helping his best-friend and business partner fight blood cancer.

Leukaemia Care provide the most fantastic support from the point of diagnosis of this horrible bloody cancer, for the diagnosed and the people who are closest to them, who can often carry a lot of emotional strain. The charity’s mission is to ensure anyone affected by blood cancer receives the right information, advice and support. And they are absolutely incredible at making sure they do this! But of course, a charity only survives with the support of others and that’s why running the marathon and raising a target of £6000 meant so much to Karl, Lucy, friends, family and everyone at Plumbco and Goodey and Howell.

So the training began and the Just Giving page was set up to receive donations right from the off! They had well under a year of training but incredibly the pair of them, through dedication and determination ran the London Marathon 22nd April 2018 Karl with the time of * and Lucy 4hours 55minutes. They both did incredibly well and have now raised, £10,010 for Leukaemia Care which is 166% of their initial target.

The donations are still coming in and we would all like to say a BIG thank you for all of the donations which are being matched by Plumbco and Goodey and Howell too. We will be absolutely delighted to handover a very large cheque to a charity close to all of our hearts and that deserve it so much.

Well done Karl and Lucy, you are both very inspiring and what you have done is simply superb!

If you would like to donate please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/karl-howell5 it would mean the world to us all.

Cheers to another Plumbco Beer Festival!

Cheers to another successful Plumbco Beer Festival!

We held our annual beer festival in a marquee at the Plumbco HQ in Wellingborough, which was bigger and better than previous years thanks to the boys at Big Top!

We were completely over-whelmed with the turnout over this two day event 27th and 28th May.

There was over 30 local real ales on offer and an exceptional Hog Roast too!

We roped in the help of some live musicians, with thanks to Luke the Drifter, the Shannondores’, The Jail Breakers and Slim 47. Who helped us make the event what it turned out to be, a bl**dy good knees up for a bl**dy good cause!

We held the event to raise money for two causes close to our hearts. The first, Glamis Hall, a community centre on the Queensway Estate in Wellingborough. It has a day centre for the over 50’s that provides community care for the residents of Wellingborough and its surrounding areas. The work they do is incredible and we have been supporting these guys for many years now, with many more years to come. Here’s a link to their website for more information: http://www.glamishall.org.uk

And secondly, the Talbot Butler Ward at Northampton General Hospital. This was chosen following our directors’ (Andrew Goodey) diagnosis of Leukaemia in 2016. It was thanks to the care he received at the hospital that he beat it following a year-long course of treatment. Andrew wanted to use the event to say thank you for the exceptional care and support he received from the hospital’s medical staff.

At the expense of some very sore heads the morning after, the event raised a grand total of £9,000 to be split between the chosen causes.

We hope to hold another Beer Festival next year too!


Christmas Jumper Day 2016

We raised more than £700 for Glamis Hall by wearing our Christmas Jumpers and asking our Facebook fans to do so too!

Karl Howell (director) decided that Plumbco would donate £10.00 for every Christmas Jumper photo that was shared to the Plumbco or the Goodey and Howell Facebook page. Little did he or we know how many photos we would receive

It was great to see the lovely folks at Glamis Hall getting involved, sending in their photos too.

We even had a couple of animals wearing their Christmas jumpers!

It was a really amazing campaign, not only to raise money, but to raise Christmas spirit too. The campaign gained a lot of interest with the press, which was fantastic, not only for us, but for Glamis Hall too. We never expected it.

Being able to hand over a substantial amount of money to the guys at Glamis Hall will just be superb. They are a community centre who provide much needed support for the elderly and can only provide that support with the help of charitable donations, so we know this money is going to go a long way!

Due to its success, we are aiming to roll this out next year too.
