Posted: 08/02/17 by Teamwork Trust Northamptonshire - Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough
A new-look kitchen for adults with mental health needs, learning and physical disabilities has been unveiled at Northamptonshire’s Teamwork Trust – with businesses, trusts and organisations rallying together to make the dramatic transformation possible.
The charity, which provides vocational experience, activities and an education programme for its members, has been supported by a host of funders, with donations pooled to transform the kitchen in its Wellingborough centre.
Graham Marshall, operations director of Teamwork Trust, said: “A huge thank you to all our supporters who have together funded our brand new Wellingborough kitchen. Our members love the new space, where they gather for breaks, spend lunchtimes and also get to enjoy cookery classes and learn valuable independent living skills. The refurbishment has transformed this space, which is now a hub for the centre.”
The donations that made this possible include £4,000 from the Baily Thomas Charitable Fund, £1,000 from Stanton Cross/Bovis Homes, £1,000 from St. Modwen and £500 from Wellingborough Council. Bushboard generously donated the worktops and splashbacks and donations were also made by the Vicarage Farm Bingo Group and Swansgate Shopping Centre. Wellingborough based Goodey & Howell also showed their support, giving a charity discount on the fixtures and fittings.
Teamwork Trust Northamptonshire is a charitable organisation committed to ensuring everyone gets access to the same chances, choices and opportunities - whatever their individual needs or abilities. It has centres in Corby and Kettering as well as Wellingborough.
