Recycling for the future! Environmental Policies and Charity Support

Here at Maxilead Metals we like to consider ourselves not only responsible for managing your scrap metal but we also like to consider it an investment in the future. While sticking to our strict environmental policy in order to keep our carbon footprint and other sources of pollution as low as possible, we also work closely with a number of local and national charities.

It is our belief that the local community is essential to any business and that in return it is a business’ responsibility to look ensure that the community thrives. The charities we currently support are listed below:

The Steve Prescott Foundation

Steve Prescott, who played in the rugby league for St Helens, Hull, Wakefield and Ireland, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in September 2006. He was given months to live. After undergoing major surgery he was transferred for more chemotherapy treatment to The Christie Hospital in Manchester.

Following his treatment, Steve was the guest of honour at the Wigan Supporters versus St. Helens supporters charity rugby match. The Steve Prescott Foundation started as two organisations began to receive the benefits of Steve’s own fund-raising activities.

The first major fund-raising event was a 199-mile walk, which began in hull and ended at Old Trafford, Manchester. Thirteen rugby clubs were visited along the way, and a whopping £60,000 was raised.

Over £100,000 has been raised for The Steve Prescott Foundation since 2007, and Steve was awarded an MBE in the 2010 New Years Honours List for his services to Rugby League and Charity Work.

Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation

Maxilead Metals are a principal shirt sponsor of Warrington Wolves Rugby Club and we have recently celebrated extending our partnership running throughout the 2016 season. As well as being a world-class Super League side, the club runs a community program called The Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, which helps to create opportunities for young people in four areas: health, education, young people and social welfare. The charity is passionate about encouraging creativity and innovation, embracing diversity and inclusion, challenging and motivating their staff, and respecting and empowering people, something that here at Maxilead we want to commend and celebrate.

Leigh Centurions Community Foundation

Leigh Centurions are a professional rugby league football club that’s based in Leigh. The Leigh Centurions Community Foundation is run by the club to inspire the community of young people to get involved in positive activities, such as sport. The community aims to create an environment, which not only supports learning, but also improves the self-confidence and employability skills of young people, as well as encouraging them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
