The Wilton Centre has raised more than £900 for this year’s Royal British Legion’s North East Poppy Appeal.

The collection among the office and laboratory workers based at the Teesside science and business park was helped by four members of the Royal Signals, including one who played the bagpipes in the Wilton Centre’s 350 seat Lakeside restaurant.

“We would like to thank all of the more than 60 businesses based at the Wilton Centre and their people who contributed to the Poppy Appeal, and to the Royal Signals who gave up their time to help us,” says Steve Duffield, Site Director at the Wilton Centre.  “Our occupiers are always keen to support our charity efforts generously.”

Wilton Centre is a leading, privately-owned science and business park located in the heart of Teesside just five minutes’ drive from Middlesbrough.  It provides a wide range of top quality office, laboratory and pilot plant accommodation at competitive rental terms with immediate occupancy.  Set in a 75 acre landscaped site, it has its own lake and boasts 1,600 free car parking spaces.
