GLASS&SEALEDUNITS DANCING SHOES RAISE MONEY FOR NEW WHEELS » » MORLEY GLASS & GLAZING managing director Ian Short has helped provide Mill Field Primary School in Leeds with a new set of wheels after he raised more than £10k for children’s charity Variety. Last year, Ian trained for three months alongside professional dance partner Olivia Choi from the North Leeds Dance Academy before competing against nine other amateur dancers in Variety’s Strictly Ballroom competition. Ian and Olivia wowed the star-studded judging panel with their samba and were crowned the winners on the evening. Best of all, the charity event raised a total of £39,500, enough to fund Mill Field’s new Sunshine Coach. Serving a diverse community in an area of significant social disadvantage, Mill Field employs a play therapist to help support its students, is a member of a food waste ‘Ian and Olivia wowed the star-studded judging panel’ programme and provides a breakfast club for over 80 students. Ian said: “The last year has been a fantastic journey for me, from quitting smoking and getting fit to learning to dance and losing over six stone in weight so far. To be able to present the new coach to teachers and students at Mill Field Primary School was a wonderful conclusion to the story.” Corporate video offers perfect introduction CRL, the world leading supplier of glass hardware to the glazing, railing, architectural and construction industries has launched a new, European corporate video, giving customers a smart introduction to the company’s facilities, brand and dedicated customer service. » » IN JUST ONE AND A HALF minutes, the video gives a snapshot of the CRL Europe business, its size, reach, product range and customer service, demonstrating why the brand has been successful for over 50 years.
