Two local firms have joined forces as Galatia and its main material supplier Jacksons are building on their strong business relationship to give something back to the community in Gainsborough.

The two companies have pulled together to create a community fund, which will help local organisations and charities make vital improvements to their facilities and carry out their important work.

Jackson Building Centre, which has been working closely with the repairs and maintenance company for the last ten months, has made a pledge to donate 0.5 per cent of all Galatia’s spend with them to the new fund, which equates to almost £10,000 per year.

The working relationship with Galatia will also enable Jacksons to take on a new apprentice from the local area, who will receive in house training and the opportunity to undertake NVQ qualifications.
