DOUGLAS-BASED Event Lighting Services and UK sound equipment firm Fuzion have donated a portable PA system to Braddan Primary School after hearing of their plight when their old PA system stopped working and the children were left without a facility for their school stage shows.
ELS company owner Justin McMullin heard of their misfortune from a friend who has children at the school and immediately offered them help.
He said: ‘I made a call to long time friend Tony Torlini at Fuzion who supply us with specialist sound equipment and explained what had happened and that we would really like to help the school out by means of a donation
‘Tony loved the idea and arranged for a Mi-Pro portable PA system to be sent to us at no cost.’
The PA system includes a wireless handheld microphone and built in CD player as well as the ability to use it purely on battery power making it ideal for use in classrooms etc for music lessons or in the hall for shows.
Justin added: ‘It can also be pulled along on the built in wheels just like a suitcase making it easy to transport around the school.
‘It’s a great pleasure for us to be able to donate the PA system to the school at no cost and thus ensure that the children can still play music and have the use of a microphone etc for their shows.’
Headmistress of Braddan School Louise Oates said: ‘I can’t thank Justin and the team at ELS and also Tony from Fuzion enough for their very kind generosity.
‘It’s a lovely gesture that the children will be very grateful to them for and will hopefully get lots of benefit from.
‘It’s very rare for firms to donate much needed equipment free of charge especially given the current financial climate.’
