EML Electrical donates tools to local community project


Thursday 25 October 2018



It was recently reported in the Peterborough Telegraph that popular community growing project in Peterborough, the Green Backyard has been targeted by thieves at a weekend and again a few days later.

The thieves took three power drills which are used on a regular basis, a generator and £100 cash.

Mark at EML Electrical saw this awful news and was quick to react. Mark spoke to co-founder of the Green Backyard and said he would donate these power tools for her. He purchased brand new power tools for the organisation and had these delivered to Sophie and her team within the week.

Sophie of Green Backyard said: “We would just like to say how grateful we are. It’s taken a really unpleasant situation and turned it around, reminding us just how amazing the community can be. We didn’t want share the story publicly online because it was not very good news. But we are very pleased we did and grateful to all those that have overwhelmed us with their kindness.”

Mark said: “When I found out that these power tools were only purchased because Sophie had run the Great Eastern Run to raise money for the drills it really pulled at my heartstrings. We are a relatively small business, but I felt it was out duty to help this local community project get back on their feet by donating some power tools to them.”
