Late fines for Carrington Power Station workers mean a £1,500 cheque for a Partington foodbank
6:10am Monday 3rd March 2014 in News
A PARTINGTON foodbank gained an unexpected financial boost thanks to tardy contactors from Carrington Power Station.
A variety of contributors, including consortium partners Alstom and DF Energy, donated a £1,526.28 cheque to Trafford Assist Foodbank.
A large proportion of the donation came from a fining system implemented by the Alstom site manager, Rainer Lueoend.
Rainer said: “We have a large construction team on site from a variety of companies and multiple meetings taking place every day.
“I have always endeavoured to run a tight ship when it comes to setting up and attending meetings.
“If someone is late for a meeting then they are fined £1 per minute up to a maximum of £10, the money is collected over a period of time and donated to a worthwhile cause.
“In this case we decided to donate the money to Citizens Advice Trafford for their food bank facility that operates out of Partington.”
