Forget Me Not welcomes Kirklees Top 100 company The Myers Group as a Platinum Partner

West Yorkshire’s Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice welcomed The Myers Group to its Platinum Partners Consortium, as the Kirklees Top 100 company pledged its long-term support for the charity’s vital work across the region.

With just a fraction of the funds it needs coming from the government, the charity must raise over £5m in charitable donations this year to ensure it is able to give children and families the support they need. By making a regular financial commitment to support Forget Me Not, The Myers Group and other local businesses provide a stable and reliable source of support, allowing the hospice to plan and budget with confidence.

The Myers Group is a fourth-generation family-owned group of companies based in Huddersfield, providing products, services, and materials to the construction industry. The company, which employs over 350 people across the Yorkshire region, originates back to 1929 and is responsible for the supply of materials to some of the most iconic constructions in the country including Emley Mast, sections of the M62 motorway, Huddersfield University, and the National Maritime Museum in London.

A full-service supplier of quality products to housebuilders and renovators, Myers Group offers everything from skip hire, aggregates and Readymix concrete through to kitchens, bathrooms and timber through its four divisions: Building & Timber Supplies, Ready Mix , Skip Hire & Johnsons Wellfield Quarry.

In 2023, The Myers Group was placed at No.1 in the prestigious Kirklees Top 100 Companies 2023.

Gareth Pierce, chief executive at Forget Me Not presented a Platinum Partner plaque to James Berry, Managing Director and sibling Katie Berry, Director of The Myers Group.

James said: “Myers Group are proud and privileged to be partnered with Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, a charity supporting children with life shortening conditions and their families locally and across the West Yorkshire region.”

Every year more families come to us needing our help at the most difficult times in their lives. But we can only build a sustainable future for our charity with the help of partners like The Myers Group. We look forward to working with them!”
