The move came after the company’s Managing Director Simon Hunter adopted a cat from the centre in Eglinton, and had pledged to help out with uniforms.

Anna Hyndman from the centre said: “All the uniforms have water-proof bottoms, t-shirts, shirts, insulated jackets.

They are all embroidered with the Rainbow logo as well, and staff here are over the moon with them. They really look the party.

“This has saved us hundreds of pounds and they were very, very generous to do this for the centre.”

Ms Hyndman said staff at Hunter’s were more than helpful, and were brilliant and tailored everything to the needs and measurements of each of the staff members.

“They even sent samples. They are just really nice people and this is a local business based there in Springtown which have done something very good for the local community so we want to say a big thank you to them for their kindness and the very professional service.”

Hunter Apparel Solutions Ltd provide a wide range of uniforms and specialist clothing across various sectors and industries.

Earlier this year, Hunter Apparel scooped an unprecedented top 3 UK industry awards.

During the awards ceremony at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, John Miln CEO of the UK Fashion & Textile Association presented Simon Hunter with awards across the top industry categories which included; Best Business Manager, Best Managed Major Contract, and Best Bespoke Work-wear Uniform Design.
