Nisa Tuffins is Making a Difference Locally

Published on 06 November 2015

The Harry Tuffins Machynlleth store is supporting two local causes in a bid to give something back to their community. The Station Garage store on Doll Street, Machynlleth has donated £500 to Girl Guiding Wales and presented £300 to Machynlleth Primary School.

The donation to Girl Guiding Wales was to provide funding for a national photo competition they were operating, with the £500 used to provide cameras for the winners of each category. The cheque was presented to the girl guides at their headquarters in Broneirion, where representatives from Tuffins were also privileged to be able to see and hold The Wreath of Respect. The wreath, which commemorates those who have served in past and on-going conflicts, is embarking on a world tour before having a permanent resting place at Westminster Abbey.

Andrew Reeves, Store Manager of Harry Tuffins commented: “We have built up a good relationship with the Guides locally and have helped them a number of times through MADL. We also had another presentation to the local school, so they can buy books in Welsh and younger pupils can learn to read fluently in the language.”

The Tuffins store presented £300 to Ysgol Bro Hyddgen (Machynlleth Primary School) to allow them to purchase books in Welsh, which will allow younger students to learn to read fluently in Welsh.

In additon to the Machynlleth store, the independently run Harry Tuffins brand operates three other forecourt stores in Churchstoke, Knighton and Cleobury Mortimer. The company has made a total of 15 donations through the Making a Difference Locally charity in the last 5 months, with beneficiaries ranging from church repairs to local services providing palliative care.
