Employees at the Head Office Beverley-based carpet and upholstery and disaster restoration specialists Chem-Dry swapped their desks and computer keyboards for paint rollers and shovels as they headed out into their local community to give a helping hand.
The group spent the day re-painting playground games and potting planters at Cavendish Primary School, while others got stuck in with a spot of painting at charity funded drug-support organisation Compass UK in Hull, as part of the business’ Corporate Responsibility programme.
With the generous support of local organisations such as Coletta and Tyson, coupled with donations from family and friends, the group were self-sufficient, enabling them to source all the tools for the jobs themselves.
Nicola Whitham, Assistant Head Teacher at Cavendish Primary, said:
“We are so grateful that Chem-Dry took the time to help prepare planters and paint our playground markers. We don’t receive funds for such work so we really appreciate their kind generosity. Since Chem-Dry’s visit, we have planted bulbs in time for Spring, with the help of parents and family, and have made good use of the ground markers to teach the children road safety and other useful life skills.”
