Whittingham Riddell Make a Difference at Craven Arms Community Centre
An enthusiastic team of volunteers from the Ludlow office of Whittingham Riddell recently offered their services to help out with painting at Craven Arms Community Centre.
The Centre, now known as CasCA, is under new management with South Shropshire Furniture Scheme having recently taken on the responsibility of keeping the doors open for the community to enjoy the wide range of sports, arts and community activities that take place in the building.
Each year Whittingham Riddell give a day of their time to support a local charity and as soon as CasCA heard of the opportunity the Centre jumped at the chance to welcome the Whittingham Riddell team.
Jean Jarvis MBE, Chief Executive said, “The Furniture Scheme relies very much on voluntary effort. We are extremely grateful to Whittingham Riddell for helping us at Craven Arms. The volunteers did a fantastic job, painting the entrance area, the IT suite and several meeting rooms. Lots of people are commenting on how good the Centre looks and how welcoming it feels”.
The volunteers were supported and supervised by Ben Whitmarsh, painter decorator from Ludlow who has been working with the Furniture Scheme at Craven Arms and Rockspring in Ludlow. Ben said, “It’s incredible how much you can get through in a day with willing workers and lots of extra pairs of hands. It really has made redecorating the Centre affordable at a time when budgets are tight.”
