Lucite International’s passion for excellence in Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) continues to be rewarded.

Cassel site’s strong safety performance is recognised by an award scheme which benefits local charities.  Provided that specific injury, environmental and health criteria are met, an award is donated to local charities, making a real difference to the community surrounding the Cassel site.

Recently, a donation of £500 was made to the Cystic Fibrosis Fund based in James Cook Hospital. The charity supports local children and young people with cystic fibrosis in many different ways, be it to buy individual items for personal use, e.g. a nebuliser or to buy equipment for the use of in-patients on the paediatric wards.

Derek O’Donnell from Cassel nominated the charity as his granddaughter Lucy suffers from cystic fibrosis and has benefitted in many ways from the organisation’s support.


Other charities which have benefitted from the Cassel SHE Recognition Scheme in the past include: Butterwick Hospice, Baby Bereavement Support Group, Hartlepool and District Hospice and Alison’s House, Alzheimer’s care & support, Zoes Place, Daisy Chain, Snaps, Away Out, Little Princess Trust, Ward 14 of James Cook Hospital and many more.
