Joseph Parr Middlesbrough join our Friends of the Foundation initiative

We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Joseph Parr Middlesbrough Ltd., who have committed to help inspire confidence and hope in those who need it throughout Teesside.

MFC Foundation plays an important part in supporting the local community. Working with some of the most disadvantaged areas of Teesside, the charity engages with individuals who would usually be hard to reach through the delivery of sport, education, health and inclusion projects.

Joseph Parr Middlesbrough Ltd is a leading independent Timber & Builders Merchant that has been on Teesside for nearly 50 years, supplying a wide range of top quality building, landscaping, and plumbing supplies to both trade and retail at very competitive rates. They’re proud to offer the finest materials sourced from leading manufacturers delivered free though out the North East on all orders over £40. They have a fantastic indoor showroom & sales centre that’s open seven days a week in Portrack, Stockton where you can browse at your leisure and view their large display area of decking, doors, flooring, fencing, paving and much more. Their expert and friendly staff are there to help with any project you have from laying a patio to building a house.

“Joseph Parr have had an association with MFC for many years both as corporate customers and Boro fans,” said David Anderson, Managing Director.

“I have indirectly supported some events with MFC Foundation but felt we needed to strengthen our relationship and become an official friend.

“The Foundation supports so many local good causes, many which are close to my heart and very am proud to be associated with them. As a supplier of construction materials I think we are in a unique position to offer a new angle into area’s where we can help support the Foundation in the future.”

MFC Foundation rely heavily on the generous support of our local business community to help achieve their mission. The Friends of the Foundation initiative was set up in response to corporate feedback, giving organisations the chance to become part of our business network.

With a minimum donation of £500 a year, you can help us in a number of ways, including:

  • Increasing the funding available to support disadvantaged people in Teesside
  • Assisting us to spread the word about the work we do
  • Helping us plan for the future growth of the charity

Ann-Marie Anderson, Business Development Manager at MFC Foundation added: “We’re really pleased to have Joseph Parr Middlesbrough as a Friend of the Foundation. Their valuable support is crucial for the amazing work MFC Foundation does across Teesside, and we look forward to a long and successful partnership together.”
