Volunteers for The Noise put Kellaway's 'dumpy' bags to good use.

Kellaway steps up to help local communities

Published:  05 June, 2014

Kellaway Building Supplies recently donated and delivered materials to help a number of local community transformation schemes.

Over the May Day bank holiday weekend, 850 people volunteered as part of The Noise weekend in North and East Bristol providing 7,800 hours of time and completing over 100 community projects. Kellaway supplied the team with 25 'dumpy' bags to help move tools and collect the rubbish that was produced during the weekend.

This vital project helped transform the homes and gardens of vulnerable adults and families and undertook painting in schools and community buildings, as well as litter clearance in public spaces.

Give and Gain Day 2014 took place the following weekend and Kellaway once again provided a lorry-load of building materials for a team of volunteers from Rolls Royce Filton who were helping out at St Werbergh’s City Farm - a green oasis in the heart of Bristol that provides a range of services that engage with some of the area’s most disadvantaged residents.

“We are a local company and therefore we are delighted to help these important and beneficial local initiatives,” said Kellaway Group marketing manager Alex Priddle. “With summer on its way, we are geared up to assist our customers with all kinds of outdoor projects including fencing, paving, decking and gardening. Ensuring that we fulfil our responsibilities to the local community is something that makes us very proud.”
