Supporting textiles students

Jo Webster (Urgo Customer Services Manager) handing over the dummies to Programme Administrator, Amy Page-Ward.

At Urgo Medical UK&I we feel very connected to and proud of our local area. Nearly two-thirds of our head office and industry employees live within the local area, so it’s important to us that we find ways in which we can help support the people and organisations around us.

After some tailor’s dummies were used in a team-building activity in our January sales conference, we thought that there would be no better way to give them a second lease of life than donating them to support students with their textile studies.

We donated these to our neighbours at the School of Design and Creative Arts at Loughborough University earlier this year and they were gratefully received.

We hope the students find this donation useful and would love to welcome them for a visit of our hosiery factory in Shepshed in the future so that they can see industrial textile manufacturing first-hand!
