Vol­un­teers help build a bet­ter fu­ture at trust

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A TEAM of man­agers from a build­ing so­ci­ety put down their pens and grabbed trow­els to help out at a Sut­ton char­ity.

The group of 11 from Leek United Build­ing So­ci­ety spent the day work­ing in the gar­dens at the Rossendale Trust, which sup­ports adults with dis­abil­i­ties.

They were tasked with plant­ing up hang­ing bas­kets and mak­ing A-frame boards to dis­play them for sale to the pub­lic, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the trust.

Veron­ica McNeil – who or­gan­ised the visit to Rossendale Hall and is man­ager of the Mac­cles­field branch – said: “Ev­ery­one thor­oughly en­joyed the day, which hope­fully ben­e­fited a won­der­ful com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity and was a great team-build­ing ex­er­cise for our­selves.

“The trust very kindly pro­vided us with the space to hold our monthly branch man­agers’ meet­ing, af­ter which we joined some of the ten­ants in plant­ing hang­ing bas­kets and con­struct­ing dis­play boards.”

Karl Down­ing, PR, me­dia and fundrais­ing of­fi­cer at The Rossendale Trust, added: “We are very grate­ful to Leek United for help­ing to make such a pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact for our ten­ants.”
