MANAGERS from Leek United spent a day helping to make a blooming difference to the lives of tenants at a supported living centre in Cheshire.
Eleven colleagues from throughout the Society’s branch network took part in a‘Make a Difference Day’ at Rossendale Hall – home of The Rossendale Trust* – in Sutton, Macclesfield.
The Branch Managers were tasked with planting up hanging baskets and making A-frame boards to display them for sale to the general public, all of which helps to raise funds for the Trust.
Macclesfield Branch Manager Veronica McNeil – who organised the visit to Rossendale Hall – said: “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, which hopefully benefited a wonderful community facility and was a great team-building exercise for ourselves.
“The Trust very kindly provided us with the space to hold our monthly Branch Managers meeting, after which we joined some of the tenants in planting hanging baskets and constructing display boards.”
Karl Downing, PR, Media and Fundraising Officer at The Rossendale Trust, added: “It was a wonderful day, and we are very grateful to Leek United for helping to make such a positive environmental impact for our tenants.”
The Rossendale Trust provides supported living for adults with a learning disability in tenanted apartments across seven sites in the Macclesfield and Buxton areas.
The Trust helps its tenants to live as independently as possible, to make their own choices and enjoy being a part of the communities around them.
It also provides for people, in some cases, with additional physical disabilities and other conditions such as Autism and Asperger's Syndrome.Back to news
