Mainland Aggregates have come to the aid of a Prince’s Trust project to renovate the garden at a supported living shelter.
The company, of Willington, Bedfordshire has donated bags of valuable gravel to create a base for part of the site of Holman House in St Andrews Road, Bedford: www.mainlandaggregates.co.uk
Holman House helps up to 20 homeless people, aged 18+, who stay there for two years to build up a support network, maximise income and learn life skills as they move into their own homes. The garden is a useful environment for activities: https://socialinterestgroup.org.uk/
“The team at the Prince’s Trust are amazing and we are very fortunate to have them supporting us at Holman House,”
said Gemma Bonfield on behalf of Holman House.
Mark Williams, Team Leader at The Bedford College Group’s Prince’s Trust said:
“We’re very grateful to Scott Chambers, Managing Director of Mainland Aggregates and colleagues for their donation which has made it possible for us to work on this worthwhile project.”
Wickes kindly donated two wheelbarrows.
The Bedford College Group runs a series of Prince’s Trust Teams groups across Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire throughout the year. The 12-week courses transform young people, giving them the confidence to make life changing decisions and seize opportunities.
