Target Windows charity fundraising

Target Windows celebrates over £4million in commercial contracts and thanks residents for charity support

Target Windows is celebrating another record-breaking year after being awarded over £4million in commercial contracts.

The family-run business, based in Meir Heath, has also raised £4k for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice this year.

One of the biggest fundraisers also saw Target Windows staff Sam Plant and Nicola Green complete the Three Peaks Challenge, assisted by Director Guy Basnett, to raise £1,665 for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest peak in each of England, Scotland and Wales in 24 hours. The time taken must include the drive times between Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. Nicola and Sam completed the challenge on Friday, June 21.

Director Guy Basnett said: “We’ve had a spectacular year. Our open days have been successful, and we have won 15 projects to fit new windows and acoustic barriers at Dogs Trust rehoming centres. We continue to get a lot of business from repeat customers and recommendations, which we are really thankful for as it means we are doing something right, as all the team here work their socks off to make every install run as smoothly as possible and also look fabulous.

“Thank you to everyone who has also supported our fundraising efforts this year – you’ve been amazing and helped support local charities.”

The business has had success with its ‘Find a door as unique as you are’ campaign, letting customers know they can find their dream door in any colour.

The boost has meant the business has been able to hire several new staff, including a contracts manager, admin assistant, showroom assistant and an order processor.

This year Target Windows has chosen not to give Christmas cards or presents and has asked staff and even customers for tinned goods for the Salvation Army and food banks.

Customers can drop off any items at either of the showrooms in Stone or Uttoxeter. To arrange delivery, call Uttoxeter: 01889 566388 or Stone: 01785 811558.
