Women’s Centre Gets Brewers Boost
As a part of the Riverside College painting and decorating course, students are required to carry out vital work experience that runs alongside the course. This year, merchants Brewers have been involved in the project, with students decorating Halton Women’s centre, a safe and independent setting which offers a multitude of different services to support women of all ages in the community of Halton.
Over the course of October, the centre was redecorated by Riverside College students, which required a range of decorating supplies Brewers donated. Over 100L of paint was donated in a range of colours and finishes suitable for the rooms in both phase 1 and 2 of the project, together with a range of sundries. Over 20 students were involved with the project, both level 1 and level 2.
“With virtually no budget and a tired centre, it was a pleasure to be able to work with the college to complete the project“ said Laurence Zing, Process Support Manager for Brewers.
“Riverside College trains students to a high standard which aligns with our core values; helping our customers get the best results. We’re very happy to be involved in a project that not only provides invaluable practical experience to the students but also supports the local community. My colleagues Steven Traynor (Area Development Manager) and James Lavery (Branch Manager) have worked extremely hard to fulfil my pledge and create a fantastic collaboration with Riverside College and Halton Women’s Centre.”
