Paving and walling manufacturer Tobermore is delighted to support the work of Barnardo’s by making a donation of £20,000, in lieu of Christmas gifts this year.

Barnardo’s protects, supports and nurtures the UK’s most vulnerable children. In 2018-2019 Barnardo’s directly supported more than 294,000 children, young people, parents and carers.

Across the UK, children continue to face complex challenges, including a growing crisis in children’s mental health. With the dedication and expertise of around 8,000 staff, 20,000 volunteers and partners, Barnardo’s work to identify vulnerable children, intervene early and support them to work towards a positive future.

Tobermore has donated funds to Barnardo’s at Christmas for several years and the company’s donations currently total over £250,000. This year’s donation will go to Barnardo’s Leaving Care Service which supports young people who have come through the care system and offers semi-independent accommodation for young people aged 16-21. Barnardo’s will help identify the right education or career path while also supporting through the peer pressures that many young people go through.
