Warrington Team Members Transform New Longford Families First Centre

20th November 2013

A team of handy volunteers from our site in Warrington, have helped renovate a new community centre for Longford Families First.

Longford Families First is a new Big Lottery funded project set up by The Children’s Society in partnership with Golden Gates Housing Trust to offer community based family support services.

Five of our Warrington team members took part in the interior makeover which has helped create a colourful and inviting social space for the project’s new headquarters.

The volunteers from Warrington were: Samantha Sleigh, Thomas England, Elliot Davies, David Broom and Barbara Whitfield.

The centre will offer a vibrant new social venue for a variety of groups and activities that Longford’s children, young people and families can enjoy.

We aim to undertake a variety of community volunteering and local fundraising projects across our UK sites. The Warrington team were particularly keen to support Longford Families First as it is a new initiative and a very worthwhile scheme for the local community.

Samantha Sleigh, team manager in Warrington, was one of the five volunteers who took part in the project and is looking forward to seeing the results that the new scheme can bring to the local area. She said:

“It’s so encouraging to see new projects like this take off and it’s great to get involved with such an important initiative. The whole team in Warrington are behind Longford Families First and look forward to seeing it progress.

“Being able to contribute to the opening of the project has been a very exciting experience and we are happy to help them make a difference to the lives of people in Longford.”

David Broom, another member of our Warrington team, who also volunteered his time said:

“It was a great way to come together as a team outside of work and seeing the results was a real personal achievement for us all. I can’t wait to hear what the families of Longford think of their new community centre.”
