Thousands raised 'tanks' to Marsh Industries appeal
Published:  28 June, 2017

An ingenious idea to help raise money for merchants' own local charities from Marsh Industries is now running successfully in more than 200 branches across the UK, raising thousands of pounds for worthy causes close to merchants' hearts.

Over 200 Marsh mini tanks are on display on trade counters and are now filling up with cash. Every merchant that participates can choose which particular local charity should receive the donations collected in the tank.

"The idea is such a simple yet ingenious one: our Appeal Tanks really do catch the eye and encourage conversation and donation. We know that thousands of pounds have already been handed over to local hospitals, hospices, community groups and national charities from merchants across the UK."

The campaign will run throughout 2017, so interested merchants can still get involved. Merchants can email to get hold of a Marsh Merchant Appeal Pack and start raising money for the causes that mean most to them. Each tank holds around £350 in one pound coins and can be emptied and refilled many times over. Each Marsh Appeal pack contains a mini Tank, counter display and, as a thank you from Marsh, special merchant discount vouchers.

Marsh Industries is a leading designer and UK manufacturer of water and wastewater treatment products for British and European markets.
