Support for Dundee's young joiners

The company also supports causes more closely related to its business - like training a new generation of joiners...

Ian Wyllie, Dundee and Angus College

When former joiner Ian Wyllie began work as a lecturer at Dundee and Angus College, he wanted to organise two prizes, for the most-improved apprentices in the first and second year. Ian had worked with Howdens before, and knew that the company likes to help out when it can. So he approached the Dundee depot, which donated the perfect prize - a bag of tools for each winner.

Practical support such as this is one of the most important aspects of Howdens' involvement with education.
