Dish­washer de­light at com­mu­nity cen­tre

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

THE TEAM at a com­mu­nity cen­tre were de­lighted when a busi­ness do­nated a dish­washer to help it pro­vide its ser­vices.

Vol­un­teers at the Brid­gend Cen­tre are car­ry­ing out changes at the premises to help meet de­mand, in­clud­ing re­fur­bish­ing the kitchen.

They thought a dish­washer would re­ally help vol­un­teers who were spend­ing time wash­ing dishes when run­ning events and ac­tiv­i­ties at the cen­tre.

They put in a call to All your Ap­pli­ances on Churchill Way, Macclesfield, to see if the firm was able to do­nate a dish­washer to the char­ity, and were pleased when they agreed.

Re­becca Lea, manager of the Brid­gend Cen­tre, said: “The manager Chris Wy­att did not hes­i­tate in agree­ing and within 24 hours it was ready for col­lec­tion and even came with a 12 month war­ranty.

“We’ve been wash­ing the many cups and plates by hand and with grow­ing de­mand it was be­com­ing quite a chore. The staff, vol­un­teers and those vis­it­ing the cen­tre can­not thank Chris enough for his kind­ness.”

The Brid­gend Cen­tre on Palmer­ston Street in Bolling­ton was es­tab­lished in 1990. It serves the com­mu­nity by run­ning a char­ity shop, tea room, talks and walks, as well as ac­tiv­i­ties such as chess groups, read­ing groups, yoga and Span­ish.

Re­becca said: “Since the cen­tre started, it has grown from strength to strength, widen­ing its ap­peal to lo­cal peo­ple as the first point of con­tact for com­mu­nity mat­ters.

“It is a com­mu­nity co-op­er­a­tive, where ev­ery­one works to­gether for the greater ben­e­fit of all.The Brid­gend Cen­tre is hop­ing to ren­o­vate the whole kitchen.

“This is an on­go­ing project so we’d like to hear from any­one who wants to make a do­na­tion.”

Call Re­becca at the cen­tre on 01625 576311, go to 104 Palmer­ston Street, Bolling­ton, or email info@ brid­gend­cen­tre.org.uk.
