Santa swaps sleighbells for skips with Gavin Griffiths Group

Santa swaps sleighbells for skips with Gavin Griffiths Group

IN December, the team at Gavin Griffiths Group filled and delivered one of its most important skips to date – one full of gifts for Moriston Hospital Children’s Unit.

Word had reached the Griffiths team that the wards had been low on morale, even approaching what should have been a happy time of year for them. So they jumped to work filling an 8-yard skip with Christmas gifts including toys and portable DVD players that were needed for the ward itself.

The concept snowballed with the public, customers, staff and suppliers being asked to help “fill a skip” after media coverage coupled with a campaign that went viral on social media.

The skip was then delivered by Santa and his elves in a Christmas-themed lorry to Moriston Hospital.

Gavin Griffiths, Managing Director of the group, commented: “I am very proud of the whole team for coming up with such a fantastic idea which has transformed Christmas for the children, staff and families on the Children’s ward. 

“It was incredibly heart-warming to receive such an amazing response during what has been a very difficult year. I would like to thank every single person and company that supported this appeal and made it possible.”

Gavin Griffiths Group of companies, based in south Wales, has grown its operations considerably over the last few months. As an established, family-owned company providing a supply of aggregates and waste management solutions as well as skip hire, inert recycling, contracting and transport services the company are always looking to support and help the local community.
