Online PR News – 15-July-2011 – – Advanced Handling, specialists in designing and manufacturing a wide array of materials handling equipment and material handling solutions in order to help companies to comply with manual handling legislation have recently become a corporate supporter of the charity ‘Tusk trust’.

The lifting solutions company have decided to donate 1% of the total sale price of their Freedom lift stacker. They also have a complete range of products - which include mobile scissor lifts, scissor tables, scissor lifts and other manual handling equipment. The company are also planning on running a number of fundraising days for Tusk following the success of their Red Nose Day ‘Bake off’ competition.

Tusk provides much needed protection for approximately 36 species of endangered animals- including the African elephant. The charity was an obvious choice because of this, due to Advanced Handling’s elephant that appears perched on top of a scissor table on all the company collateral including their website home page.

Tusk continuously strive to set up and promote community led initiatives to help secure a greater sense of security, infrastructure, healthcare services and facilities and employment through responsible tourism. In addition to this they also run various other nature based enterprises and other conservation projects too.

The charity currently employ an estimated 1,370 people who benefit over half a million other people. Lastly, Tusk also provides the much needed financial support needed to help build and improve facilities in rural schools and other educational establishments across Africa.

Advanced Handling are a corporate supporter of Tusk who currently have a range of exciting fundraising events in the pipeline, including charity ball events, and the Kenya and London marathons where the company are guaranteed a place.

Prince William is the Royal Patron for Tusk, and attends these charity events on a regular basis. Most recently the Prince had presented a television programme titled ‘Prince William’s Africa’ to mark the 20th anniversary of the animal conservation charity.

The cameras followed the Prince to Botswana, where he reveals his passion for conservation in Africa, which began when the young prince spent his gap year there ten years ago. It also reveals why he feels it’s so important to get Britain’s youth involved in doing so. As well as filming the Prince carrying out his official duties it also films him escaping in the African wilderness for a research safari.

Prince William has said about Tusk "I was delighted when asked to become Royal Patron of Tusk Trust. I have seen the Charity’s inspirational work at first-hand. To me, projects supported by Tusk – particularly those which combine the protection of endangered species with innovative initiatives for alleviating poverty in remote rural communities - show a clear way forward. Such ground-breaking conservation work aims to preserve the balance between local people and wildlife, and provides a framework of real hope for the future."
