Charity project royally received

Published:  03 July, 2014

A charity for disabled children received a royal visit after the refurbishment of its garden was completed with the help of a donation by Integrated Services (IS), part of Wolseley UK.

Integrated Services donated £2,500 worth of materials to Building for the Future. The charity, founded in 2007, aimed to raise enough money to fund a community centre for disabled children and their families in Wokingham borough.

IS teamed up with Interserve after the charity requested help to develop the outdoor space. IS' donated materials included fencing and artificial turf.

The building, named 'Our House', was officially opened in in Twyford on 6 May, 2014 by the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Ian Bridgford, area trading manager south at IS, said: “Integrated Services has partnered with Interserve for around 6 years and we have a very good working relationship with them. So, when they approached us to supply materials for a project they were involved in, we were happy to help. IS is involved in several charity projects at the moment as part of our on-going strategy to provide help and support to our local community.”
