Thomas Plant’s Custom-Wrapped Excavator Benefits Children’s Charity


The Thomas Group is a well-known group of companies providing a range of services to the construction industry, including plant hire, haulage, tool hire, accommodation, and GPS machine control services.


The company is committed to giving back to the community, and one of the charities that they have partnered with recently is the Joseph Smile Children’s Charity. The charity offers a range of services to families, including respite care, home care, and support for siblings. The charity aims to improve the quality of life of children and families dealing with life-limiting illnesses, providing them with the support they need to live their lives to the fullest.


Thomas Group’s involvement with the charity began when an employee whose child had received support from the charity suggested that they get involved. Since then, the partnership has grown, and Thomas Plant Hire has become one of the charity’s biggest supporters.


One of the ways in which Thomas Plant Hire supports the Joseph Smile Children’s Charity is through fundraising events. The company has organised various events, including charity walks, sponsored bike rides, and golf days, to help raise money for the charity. In addition to these events, Thomas Plant Hire has recently created a one-off vinyl-wrapped excavator. The excavator, which features the charity’s logo and branding, will be used on various construction sites across the UK to raise awareness of the charity’s work and generate much-needed funds.


The Volvo EC140 excavator is a unique addition to the charity’s fundraising efforts. The excavator will serve as a reminder of the important work that the charity does, helping to raise awareness of the challenges that families with sick children face on a daily basis. The hope is that the excavator will capture the attention of the public and encourage them to donate to the charity, generating much-needed funds.


Thomas Plant Hire’s charity-wrapped excavator is just one example of their commitment to giving back to the community. The company believes in making a positive impact on the lives of others, and their support of the Joseph Smile Children’s Charity is a testament to this belief. By partnering with charities like the Joseph Smile Children’s Charity, Thomas Group is setting an example for other businesses to follow, inspiring them to support worthy causes in their local area.


Ian Mcmillan, Head of Business Development for the Thomas Group, said, “Supporting the Joseph Smile Children’s Charity has been an incredibly rewarding experience for us. We are proud to be able to contribute to an organisation that does such important work for children and their families. Our partnership with the charity has strengthened over the years, and we are committed to continuing our support in the future.”


The Joseph Smile Children’s Charity has expressed its gratitude for Thomas Group’s support, stating that the company’s contributions have made a significant difference in the lives of the families they serve. The charity’s founder, Joseph’s mother, expressed her appreciation, saying, “I am overwhelmed by the support we have received from Thomas Group. Their commitment to our cause has been unwavering, and we are grateful for everything they have done to help us make a difference in the lives of sick children and their families.”


The Thomas Plant division of the Group will be exhibiting at Plantworx and has taken three stands in the indoor and outdoor Get Connected Zones and will be demonstrating Ongrade MC, machine control. Visit www.plantworx.co.uk for further information and to register to visit.
