Representatives from The Window Company (Contracts) were at the opening of the new Moat Foundation Community Hub in Maldon to see just what a difference their £10,000 donation will make to some of the most vulnerable groups in and around the Essex town.
The award-winning commercial window and door installer donated the money when it was appointed to Moat’s window and door replacement framework last year, to support its charitable Foundation. It has now been used to help set up and furnish the hub and provide the IT equipment needed to deliver everything from job clubs to digital skills workshops and employability sessions.
There are more Moat homes within Maldon than in any other local authority area and a significant older population whom it is hoped will be able to benefit from the services and activities being planned at the hub
Chairman of The Window Company (Contracts), David Thornton, said: “We’re very proud to back Moat and its Foundation in their mission to make a lasting impact in the communities where we work alongside them. This newest hub has the potential to be a hugely valuable resource and we’re delighted to have been involved.”
As well as the donation, The Window Company (Contracts) is also providing work placements and supporting community events to benefit Moat residents within the wider region covered by the framework, which includes Essex, London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
