Doing it for the kids

Flannery Plant Hire is raising money for BBC Children in Need with the help of two specially-branded spotty machines.

Flannery Plant Hire is offering for hire the special telehandler and mini excavator, with all the rental charges being donated to the BBC Children in Need charity.

The machines first mission has been to support a huge team of volunteers and develop a new base for Surfability UK. It is the UK’s first-fully inclusive surf school. Surfability UK currently supports more than 500 people from across the UK and gives disabled people the opportunity to take to the waves.

With the help of DIY SOS: Big Build volunteers, the Flannery Spotty Machines are currently renovating Surfability’s current space – a run down
and disused bus shelter that has no electricity or water amenities – turning it into a well-designed surf suit and board storage unit. We all look forward to the show airing in November during BBC Children in Need Appeal week.

Patrick Flannery, Flannery Plant Hire Managing Director, explains:
“We are proud to support the DIY SOS: Big Build team for the second year running with machines for the duration of their charity build. Our Spotty Machines are already hard at work in Swansea and will continue to raise money for BBC Children in Need over the coming months. As a company we are very proud to support this great cause and we are very grateful to our suppliers, including JCB, for supporting this initiative.”The Flannery Spotty machines are now available to hire with all of the rental charge being donated to the charity. As well as going out to customer sites, the machines will be used at fundraising events to raise more money in aid of BBC Children in Need (a registered charity no. 802052 in England and Wales and SC039557 in Scotland) and all of the proceeds from these events will be donated to the charity.

Flannery founder and Chairman Patrick Flannery will be hitting the road on his bike to cycle the equivalent distance between the two furthest apart Flannery depots (Wembley and Aberdeen) a total distance of 537 miles.
The Flannery team will tackle the famous Thames Bridge Trek in October and take part in a virtual pub quiz to unite their fundraising efforts together.
