Isle Of Man indie takes charity back to school

Mantons adds £1,000 toy and book donation to fundraising total

 

The generous team at indie Mantons has added to its charitable efforts with a donation of over £1,000 worth of toys and books to the Isle Of Man card and gift retailer’s local school.

“After winning national awards including Community Business Of The Year and Responsible Business Of The Year and having previously raised over £30,000 for the Manx community, we’re pleased we can continue to bring benefits to our community,” said Chris Beards, who owns Mantons with wife Debbie.

For this effort the books and toys came from the Port Erin shop’s stock for the children to use both in lessons and break times at Arbory School in the nearby village of Ballabeg which Chris’ daughter and grandchildren attended.

“I’ve always liked to help the school as much as possible,” Chris added. “I even used to coach the school football teams!

“I’d like to thank all our amazing team members and our fantastic customers who have helped to make this possible with their support. As well as continuing to improve our service and product offering, the Mantons team plan to keep on fundraising and helping the local community well into the future.”

And Chris, Debbie and the staff are now looking for their next fundraising project with the aim of boosting their total to £35,000 for local organisations including Crossroads Care, Isle Of Man Arts Council and The Isle Of Man Post Office, as well as the Disasters Emergency Committee and Red Cross to help the people of Ukraine.
