Community & Charity Work

Local and National Charity Organisations

Arnold Plant Hire Ltd & The Westgate Group ( is regularly involved with local and national charity organisations and good causes. We actively look for opportunities to engage with in the local community and contribute to charitable events regularly. Here are just some of the organisations we have helped:

We work with National Charities


The NSPCC lobbies the government on issues relating to child welfare and creates campaigns for the general public with the intention of raising awareness of child protection issues. It operates a helpline for anyone concerned about a child.







The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance. This year, join us as we mark the end of the WW1 centenary by saying Thank You to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

How do we help?

Since 2013 Arnold Plant Hire Ltd have run two JCB Teletruks within the hire fleet in the livery of the NSCPCC (Green) and CANCER RESEARCH UK (Pink). All hire profits for these two machines are donated to the relevant charities on a 6 monthly basis. We have topped up these donations by running charity based competitions at corporate events, for example, ‘beat the pro’ at our recent 25th Anniversary Golf Day. In 2018 we won an auction for JCB Mini Excavator with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, helping to raise £80000.00 for the Uttoxeter RBL Team.
