Local repairs and maintenance provider Mears, has donated over £700 worth of old kitchen units to the Construction Youth Trust so that they can be used for training young people in construction skills.
The stock which is old and doesn’t meet the specifications for use in Mears’ contract with NPT Homes had been taking up storage space in the office until the team realised that they could be used by the Construction Youth Trust.
Chris Day, Senior Commercial Manager at Mears said "We are delighted to be able to support the excellent work of the Construction Youth Trust. The future of our industry depends on young people choosing to work within construction and we are therefore committed to helping ensure their success".
A further £300 worth of units have also been recently donated to Neath Port Talbot College which use them for the training of local apprentices.
Helen Devitt, Wales Co-ordinator for the Trust said ‘We are delighted to receive this very generous donation from Mears, we are always looking for new ways to inspire our beneficiaries and these units will be great learning materials for some of our courses. Donations like these help us continue in our mission to help young people in hard to reach communities access free construction skills training, and careers opportunities within the construction industry.’
