Franchise Owner Wins Medal

Elizabeth Screen

Elizabeth Screen, who set up the drains franchise with her husband Jim back in 1989, was awarded the British Empire Medal for all her amazing charitable work. This took place in a ceremony at the Mansion House in Newcastle and then a few days later was invited to a garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate her award.

Elizabeth created a drop-in community cafe called Martha and Mary's ' in Heaton,' just over 10 years ago. She coordinated all the churches in the area to acquire and convert an old shop premises, with the help of grants and funding from various sources, including her Dyno-Rod drains franchise.
