Hippo Raises £1,012 For Cancer Research UK

At Tembé we take pride in supporting different charities in all manner of ways.

Our latest idea was to create a ‘pink’ product that could be sold to raise awareness and money for Cancer Research UK.

One in Three people will be diagnosed with a form of cancer and because of this the chances are that we will all know of someone who has suffered due to the dreadful illness.  Cancer Research UK do fantastic work in the fight against cancer. For each roll of Hippo Heavy Duty Pink Tape that Tembe sold we made a donation creating a grand total of £1,012.

We simply could not have done this without the support of our wonderful customers and end users. So a massive thank you from everyone at Tembe.

Your donations have all been greatly appreciated and also acknowledged in Builders Merchants News! Well done everyone! –

“Tembé DIY & Building Products has raised £1012 for Cancer Research UK after selling Hippo’s pink version of its heavy-duty tape.

Andrew Baker, marketing director of Tembe DIY & Building Products, said: “Cancer is that dreaded word spoken, almost everyone has been touched by it in some way, be it a family member or a friend, it can strike at any age, young or old. Tembe and our customers are proud to continue doing our part to help raise money for a cure.”

Sheila Jennnings from Cancer Research UK accepted the cheque at Tembe’s head office in Doncaster, along with Mr Baker and Siobhan Connor, head of PR at the company.

Ms Jennings said: “If we had the world I wanted we would have a cure for cancer. Tembe DIY and its customers are now part of finding that cure, because of the fundraising.” “

We also had a write up in Professional Builder Magazine –
