Last month Bromak Recruitment supported a charity construction project at the Bennett Street Youth and Community Centre in Stockport. Bromak footed the bill to supply a Labourer to the charity project for four working days to help rebuild the centre after an arson attack.
In March 2014, the community centre was destroyed by two local youths, who have since been arrested. The youths set fire to a trailer parked in the car park, which spread to the centre’s storage container. Unfortunately the storage container wasn’t covered by insurance and the cost of the damage was estimated to be in the region of £40,000. Amongst other things the container included 29 specially adapted bikes.
Construction firm Willmott Dixon organised the charity project with local firms in order to restore the centre to its former glory. The regeneration includes an extension to replace the old storage container.
Cameron Berry, Operations Director at Bromak Recruitment said: “It is great to see different businesses coming together and doing what they can in order to show their support to a community left devastated following a mindless, selfish act. We’re proud to have been involved.”
The community centre first opened its doors in the 1960s, with the goal of offering a facility to the local community where they could hold events, groups and support sessions.
