CCG was delighted to support the launch of hub West Scotland’s Helping Hands Initiative which has been set up with supply chain partners from within the construction industry to provide skills, labour, and materials to help improve valued community facilities.
Harestanes Community Facility, in the East Dunbartonshire area of Kirkintilloch, was chosen as the inaugural project for 2017, a facility that is home to Pensioners Clubs, School Clubs, Toddler Groups, and Brownies Clubs, and regarded by locals as the heart of their community. Harestanes Baptist Church are the “Leaseholders” of The Centre and they provide cheap rents to Service Users.
CCG provided labour and materials for the project and worked alongside other companies within the supply chain that included:
Works to the Harestanes Community Facility were undertaken over the course of five days comprising fabric repairs to the walls, roof and windows as well as repairs to flooring, external doors and interior and exterior decoration. The supply chain also donated a new dishwasher, cooker and sinks which will allow further use of the kitchen facility.
Iain Marley, CEO of hWS said: ‘We are delighted that our supply chain have come together to support this fantastic contribution to a local community. Adding value to communities is at the heart of everything we do. We hope to be able to continue with the Helping Hands Initiative as an annual event and build on the fantastic success that has been achieved this year.”
Lynn Stodart, CCG Group HR Manager, said: “We were delighted to be part of this project and hope the people of Kirkintilloch enjoy their newly upgraded community facility. Much like hWS, CCG passionately supports community-based initiatives and will continue to work with our supply chain partners across Scotland.”
