The Allan Burton Memorial Foundation – the nominated charity for TIP-ex 2016

Latest News | 10th Mar

Reflecting its industry – leading significance, each year the TIP-Ex Show features a nominated charity which has the specific aim of raising money for good causes, the said charity inevitably having a direct relationship with the tipping industry.

Last year, it was the Lighthouse Club. For 2016, it is the Allan Burton Memorial Foundation.

The founder of Thompsons, the late Allan Burton was a great supporter of children, helping and encouraging them in all sorts of ways to find their place in the world. After his passing, the Burton family set up the Foundation in his memory in order to help children – and their families – cope and hopefully overcome really serious conditions such as cancer. This way, Allan’s lifelong commitment can continue and go ever forward.

To date, the Foundation has raised over £65,000 with the monies being variously distributed to leading charities including CLIC Sargent, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Macmillan Cancer Support and Pancreatic Cancer UK.

To all our contributors, we say a heartfelt ‘Thank You.’

For this year’s Harrogate Show, we want to go a whole stage further, really putting the Foundation in the public eye.

To do this, we have created our own advert – bright, colourful and life – affirming. It’s attached to this news release. The advert will appear in areas of the commercial vehicle press, at the Show and in other ways too.

Naturally, the advert is all about raising funds for people that really need our help and support, so we ask you to consider whether you can join us in our efforts.

If so, the Foundation has its own website, where you can find more details about the Foundation, who to speak to and how to donate.

Lastly, we’d also ask you to please forward this press release to as many of your friends and business contacts as you can!

Our sincere thank you
The Burton Family
