Harrison Hire & Sales have a long history of supporting charities and other organisations, particularly those which are local to our branches in Malton, Hull and Leeds.
Here are some of the organisations we have recently worked with:
For over 40 years John Harrison has been a Lions Club member, with his daughter Anne, our Office Director (pictured above) following in his footsteps. The Lions Club aim to serve the community. They run events throughout the year which help improve the lives of others. One of the best known local activities is Santa's Sleigh. Many of HHS staff volunteer to be Santa's Elves every December - a very rewarding experience which raises money to support many charities.
The Lions Club welcomes new members from all areas of society. See the Malton and Norton Lions website for more information.

Our enthusiastic (and slightly crazy) engineer, Dan Ward, offered to take part in the "Hell On The Humber" endurance race which took place from 7am to 7pm Saturday 18th August 2018. Entrants run the 4 mile circuit across the Humber Bridge and back as many times as they are able. After successfully completing 8 gruelling circuits across the steel structure totalling 32 miles, injuries left Dan unable to continue. Well done Dan!
Monies raised will be split between Help the Heroes and Cottingham Tigers RFC Mini section, where Dan is a coach. If you'd like to contribute to these very worthwhile charities please visit Dan's Fundraising Page with Virgin Money Giving.
Hull Branch Manager, Allan Wall commented, "We're very proud of Dan. He started with us as a 16 year old apprentice, and it's great to see him giving back to the community". The total raised will be announced once all monies are collected.
Meet the Cottingham Tigers Mini's. These youngsters are trained by our engineer Dan Ward, who's based at the Hull branch. Harrison Hire and Sales sponsored their new kit. Some of the team are pictured below with professional Rugby League player Josh Bowden from Hull FC at the City of Hull 9-a-side tournament.
Harrison Hire and Sales have supported local clubs and community groups for many years. These include: Malton & Norton RUFC, Scarborough Beckett Cricket League, Malton Tennis Club, Young Farmers, Ryedale Youth Theatre, Malton and Norton Musical Theatre and Ryedale Special Families.
Since we started trading in 1966 Harrison Hire and Sales have aimed to support local suppliers where possible. With more products being available at the click of a button we believe it is more important than ever to buy locally and support local businesses who give us great customer service. Keeping it local also helps us to keep our impact on the environment to a minimum.
