A Lancashire housewares manufacturer has donated storage boxes to a local veteran's charity who provide accommodation and support to ex service men and women.

What More UK manufactures metal and plastic housewares of all kinds, from around the sink items to garden, garage and office wares.

Company director Tony Grimshaw was invited to tour Healthier Heroes in Burnley, a veteran's charity established in 2018.

The charity helps ex-servicemen and women overcome social isolation, homelessness and improving mental health and wellbeing in the veteran community.

Tony said: "I'd like to encourage other businesses within East Lancashire and Burnley in particular, to donate as much as they possibly can to this establishment.

"The people, the recipients of the services of this place, have given parts of their young lives and it's time to pay back, so give what you can."

Tony, who served in the military, was so impressed with the facility at Bancroft House that he offered a donation of storage boxes from Wham (owned by What More).

Managing director of Healthier Heroes, Andrew Powell, said: "In the last three years, Healthier Heroes has been able to support over 200 homeless veterans, and we've got a massive waiting list as well.

"On June 22 we are holding the Armed Forces Day event at Towneley Park, so if you want to come down and support us that way, all money raised helps us to run this service because last year it cost us over half a million pounds.

"Any help and support, whether that's fundraising or donations, is more than welcome.

"Donations from our local business community would really help with our running costs, so please get in touch if there's anything you can spare.

"Thank you to Tony for his support!"
