M&Y Maintenance and Construction have donated a van from their fleet of vehicles to help community based projects in Liverpool
M&Y, a subsidiary of the Regenda Group, carried out necessary repairs to the van and handed the keys to the Breckfield and North Everton Neighbourhood Council (BNENC).
BNENC is a community based voluntary organisation, located to the north of Liverpool city centre. It provides practical help, advice, support and training to some of the 15,000 residents in one of the most deprived areas in the country.
Following partnership work on a community garden, M&Y decided to donate a van from their fleet, to enable BNENC to deliver more community based projects in the area.
Gill Kelly, Managing Director for M&Y Maintenance and Construction, said: “We’re passionate about supporting the communities we work in, and this was great opportunity for us to donate a van – that had reached the end of its fleet life – to a community group that strives to make people’s lives better.”
Kevin Short, Team Leader Merseyside Neighbourhood Team at Regenda, said: “I am delighted that M&Y Maintenance and Construction were able to donate a van to this fantastic community group. This will help them expand the work they’re doing, and help more people in the Breckfield and Everton area.”
