Last week, the Grimsby team at the Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm donated Christmas gifts to children in the care of North East Lincolnshire Council and women in the care of the Womens Aid in Grimsby.
Westermost Rough Ltd – a partnership of DONG Energy, Marubeni and the UK Green Investment Bank donated Lego to the value of £2,500, in time for Christmas.
The presentation, made to council chief executive Rob Walsh last Friday during a visit to the site, was an unexpected gift to the borough’s most ‘in need’ children and young people.
Site and Commissioning Project Manager Tue Lippert who presented the gifts stated: “In the team we hold a positive view of Grimsby, which has welcomed us warmly on this project. Having lived and worked in Grimsby for two years now, and operated closely with the local business community, the team at Westermost Rough wanted to give something back. There is a lot of positive activity happening in Grimsby and many possibilities for the area not only in the future but here and now. Hopefully our donations will spread some Christmas joy for local children and families.”
Rob Walsh added: “This is a wonderful gesture from a team of staff that very obviously care greatly about the community in which they are working. Our looked after children staff have collected the lego, and it will now be distributed it to our children’s homes and, if practicable, across some of our foster families too. A very thoughtful gift in time for Christmas which we are sure will get a huge amount of use over the coming months.”
