Essar’s Brainwave

A significant safety milestone at the Essar Oil Uk Stanlow refinery has resulted in a £3000 donation to the Brainwave charity’s north west centre in Warrington.

Stanlow achieved five million hours without a lost time injury and through its Let’s Give programme, which links charitable giving to safety, made the contribution to Brainwave.

Brainwave works with children with a range of conditions, including cerebral palsy, genetic conditions, Down’s syndrome, autism and developmental delay.

Matthew James, Stanlow’s operations maintenance co-ordinator who nominated the charity said: “After becoming frustrated and disappointed in the help available, having to constantly push and chase for services for our son Dylan, who has a severe global development delay, we stumbled upon Brainwave who were a breath of fresh air. We have been with Brainwave for three years now and Dylan has gone from strength to strength.”

Brainwave’s community fundraising manager Joanne Freeman was delighted to receive the funds from Essar, sending ‘a huge thanks to all the team.’
