As nice as it is, we aren’t just in business for the money. It might sound a bit hackneyed to say but we really do want to make a difference. Taplanes is proud to be a member of Made in Britain and we care about making a difference locally, whether that is by providing decent jobs, buying from other local businesses where possible, minimising any negative impact on the environment, being a good neighbour or supporting local charities.
We also want to make a positive impact further afield where we can, by sponsoring customers, suppliers and employees in their own charitable endeavours, and by raising funds and awareness of projects chosen by the people who work at Taplanes. Our corporate fundraising cause is the Toilet Twinning Project, which aims to bring toilets to everyone, everywhere. During 2019, Taplanes twinned its first toilet with a project in Mali, West Africa; which coincidentally is the first African country where we have supplied shower cubicles. We intend to twin many more toilets throughout 2020 and will be encouraging suppliers and customers to join us in this fantastic cause.
Keep an eye out for news on our 2020 Three Omega challenge – fundraising and fun within the Yorkshire Dales as teams race to get a Taplanes Shower Cubicle up a hill.
