The local community from Stanney Grange recently expressed a need for help to improve the facilities at their local community centre.

A group of Vauxhall employees answered their call and offered the services of a willing team from Ellesmere Port’s Supply Chain group and two suppliers, Voith, and Syncreon.

The team, with paintbrushes in hand, repainted the hall, kitchen, and main function room, and then moved outside to plant trees within the gardens.

The centre is key to the local community and is well utilised as a youth club, dance studio and other youth projects, and required some much needed care and attention.

Elaine Dunn, chief officer of the Ellesmere Port and Neston Association of Voluntary and Community Organisations – EPNAVCO – said: “I would like to let you know how thrilled we are with the work done at the centre. It has made such a difference.”

Ash Evans, supply chain director at Vauxhall Motors said: “Vauxhall Motors has great links with the local community and by donating a few hours of employees’ time we have hopefully, helped the community in a very positive way.”

Joan Evans, community development worker, EPNAVCO also said: “A big thank you to all who came and worked so hard. I cannot wait for the first groups to go in this week and see it.”
