Leading European storage equipment manufacturer, Dexion Comino Ltd, has supported a charity challenge to clean, decorate and re-organise the ‘Men’s Nearly New’ Department in an outbuilding at the Sue Ryder’s hospice in Nettlebed near Reading. The company donated some Bruynzeel Sysco shelving to the 2-day Charity Challenge, which was co-ordinated by BAE Systems as part of its graduate development programme.
The Bruynzeel shelving units, each measuring 1.2m wide, 400mm deep and 2.11 high, were fitted with six shelves. They have replaced previous, dilapidated shelving to create a more organised and aesthetically pleasing environment where shoppers and volunteers can easily locate clothing.
Sales are held in the outbuilding every three weeks and help contribute to the £1.4 million needed each year by the charity to run the hospice. Sue Ryder did not have the funds to maintain the building and it had fallen into disrepair and needed some major works to be carried out including the updating of the ‘Men’s Nearly New’ section.
Now, thanks to Constructor Group’s Bruynzeel shelving as well as the cleaning and repainting of the area by the team from BAE and the installation of four new changing cubicles, the ‘Men’s Nearly New’ department is now spotless and organised and will help increase sales which had fallen due to the its dark, damp and cluttered environment.
Richard Moss, Managing Director of Constructor Group says: "We were only too pleased to help with this Charity Challenge as it is for a extremely worthwhile cause and involves the participation of business and the local community. Sue Ryder Care is a remarkable national charity which deserves everyone’s support".
