As part of operation ‘Spring Clean’ at the Naylor Amco Plastics site we discovered hundreds of Hula Hoops which had been stored in a container by the previous owners after orders were cancelled.
We contacted Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and asked if we could donate them to schools, nurseries and child care providers in the local area, 165 emails were sent out on the Wednesday night, the response was tremendous with dozens of people turning up each hour with most of the Hoops being collected by close of business on Thursday.
We have received many emails of thanks and gratitude with photos of children (and some adults) of all ages enjoying playing with them.
“Thank you again for your very generous donation. The children are absolutely thrilled with them – in fact, I have seen a couple of staff practising hula hooping too!”
“THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU!! Very many thanks Naylor Plastics in Wath who have donated so many hula hoops and play tunnels to us today. It is so lovely when local businesses donate and support the children in their area. We saw lots of people there, all being gifted with lovely resources for the children in their care. Thanks guys. We really appreciate it.”
“Just wanted to send you an email to say thank you for the hula hoops this morning your staff we’re very helpful & it was greatfully appreciated.”
