SAINSBURY’S workers took a break from developing their latest store to spruce up a nearby homelessness charity.
Contractors at the supermarket, which opened this week, worked hard improving the South Birmingham Young Homeless Project, decorating fences, security grids and gates, installed security lights, fitted new signs and provided new furniture for one of the function rooms in the charity’s home at The Depot in Belton Grove.
Paul Mason, chair of trustees at the Project, thanked the team and said the employment opportunities at the store would be beneficial to the charity’s clients.
Tom Kirby, Sainsbury’s project manager, said the company had made lots of connections in Longbridge since fitting out the store and added the supermarket was keen to get involved in fund-raising activities and help out with improvement works for local organisations.
Andy Cartwright, Longbridge ward councillor for Birmingham City Council, said he had worked hard to develop links between Sainsbury’s and the community.
“I am thrilled with the employment opportunities that have been given to constituents that live in our ward,” he added.
