Phillips 66 thank local SSAFA division with another £1,000 donation

The Grimsby and Cleethorpes Division of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity received £1,000 from Phillips 66 Humber Refinery after Ken Weller, Operator, B-Shift White Oils made the nomination.

When asked why he chose SSAFA for the generous donation, Ken said:

From a simple food parcel to supplying white goods and furniture, or emotional support when things get tough, SSAFA works tirelessly for the Armed Forces and veterans all over the UK.

“In our area and elsewhere, SSAFA has helped many people get back on their feet after life events that have caused worry to those who signed that blank cheque to Queen and Country.”

Ken added:

Phillips 66 holds the coveted Silver Award for the help given to the Forces as they leave and go into the big world outside of the military family through the Armed Forces Covenant, and I feel proud to be an employee of this company. It just felt right that charities such as SSAFA should be supported and therefore I nominated it for a donation this year.”

Mark Trainor, Divisional Secretary of SSAFA Grimsby & Cleethorpes Division, said:

In the past few years, our division has received multiple £1,000 donations and one £2,000 donation from Phillips 66 Humber Refinery. You can imagine how delighted we were to receive another email that Ken had nominated us for another £1,000 donation which had been successful.

“Receiving another £1,000 donation is very much appreciated. On behalf of our division I am extremely grateful to Ken for nominating us and Phillips 66 Humber Refinery for their donation which will be spent – 100% of it – helping to support veterans and their families in North East Lincolnshire.”
