MKM Redcar carves a name for itself

MKM Building Supplies has been presented with a commemorative sculpture by the Friends of Redcar community group as part of the town’s annual Sand Sculpture Festival.

While the installation is only temporary, the sand art – which can endure for up to six months – celebrates the business and its contribution of sixty tonnes of sand, which played a vital role in bringing the seafront to life as part of the event. The Festival is widely regarded as the official start to summer and brings visitors from far and wide.

Usually seen in Weston-super-Mare, a team of artists travelled north for the second year to create a series of incredible sculptures.

MKM Redcar is heavily involved with several community projects, teams and organisations and was a major supporter of the same event in 2015. Carl Quartermain, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Leisure, Chair of Friends of Redcar and Organiser of the Kick Off the Summer event said: “Thanks to MKM, we all had a fabulous weekend. The donation of 60 tonnes of sand meant we were able to attract the current European Champion to create one of the sculptures, making this a truly world class event.

“The purpose of the event is to enhance the prosperity of Redcar, to bring growth and visitor economy to Redcar and to inspire other event organisers to stage their own events. I would like to thank manager Scott McCabe at the Dormanstown branch of MKM for understanding the message from our very first meeting and delivering his promises over and beyond the call of duty.”

Scott, Branch Director for MKM Redcar, added: “As a branch we feel particularly passionate about supporting the town in as many ways as possible. This event is an incredible opportunity to bring visitors to Redcar and showcase what we can offer for the summer season, not only that but it is fantastic for the local community and the economy. Seeing our logo become part of the Festival has been incredible – these guys really are very talented and it’s definitely a novel use of our building sand!”
