Smiths Hire Teams up with McDonalds Blackpool

Here at Smiths Hire, we love a good community project. Founded in Blackpool over 40 years ago, the local area has been integral to the company’s growth and our roots here run deep.

The ‘Love Where You Live’ project aims to engage the public in changing behaviours and drives local action through fostering pride and understanding within the community. Alongside this, they are raising the profile of how important caring for local places is, given its importance to individual’s quality of life.

So when they needed a scissor lift to give a church hall turned community centre some much needed TLC, Smiths were happy to lend a helping hand.

Pictured above behind our Marketing Director David Turner and McDonald’s Area Ops Consultant Barry Howard, the scissor lift – donated by MD Thomas Smith, helped the team finish the job.

The building has many fantastic uses including theatre and dance groups, AA meetings and Sunday school and play groups. A great help to the local community in the surrounding area.
