P H Pumps has always given 10 per cent of its profits to charity, but now it is giving its expertise as well.

PH Pumps in Woolpit was founded about eight years ago by Paul and Daphne Holmes and has given to charities at home and abroad.

Its latest adopted charity is the Beyton-based Doxa Project, which supports the St Monicah Fountain Academy in Nakuru, Kenya.

Daphne said: “We recently got involved with Doxa and have been supporting them financially but Paul is also giving them advice because they want to sink a borehole.

“He’s been talking to them about technical things for when they’re seeking contractors because he has been in the pumping industry for 30-odd years, so he has the expertise.

“We’re both Christians and before we started the company we gave 10 per cent of a salaries to charity, so when we started the company it was the first thing we said we’d do.”
