SPAR UK partners donate hours of employee time to support youth project in South Wales

 

An army of 40 volunteers from Blakemore Trade Partners has donated 520 hours of employee time supporting a youth project in South Wales.

South Wales, 2017-Jul-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — Volunteers from the division’s Trading Department rolled up their sleeves and spent two days regenerating the Fernhill Youth Project, Mid Glamorgan in South Wales.

Employees were tasked with painting the communal and kitchen areas inside the centre, restoring and painting a wooden memorial bench, turning over a large area of land for the project to use for vegetables, and build six work benches. In addition, employees used their IT expertise to clean up the youth centre’s IT software. The team also donated an iPad Mini and 32” flat screen TV to the project.

The Fernhill Youth Project provides a safe, warm place where young people can socialise, have fun, try new activities, learn new skills, help create trust and respect for each other and their community. The project offers a variety of opportunities enabling young people to grow in confidence, increase self-esteem and participate in practical and physical activities that they would not be able to experience otherwise.
