Spectus, part of the UK’s largest manufacturer of high quality PVC-U products, has been involved in a DIY SOS project in conjunction with fabricator EYG Windows and The Smile Foundation to support the Hull Families Project charity.
The charity offers support to families in Hull who are facing difficulty or crisis and the project involved the refurbishment of its headquarters. Its current premises presented a health and safety risk and needed an approximate £40,000 overhaul in order to bring the facility up to date.
One focus of the project included replacement of the existing broken windows. Not only were they inefficient due to their state and age, but also the cost to replace them would be expensive to the charity.
Spectus has supported the Smile Foundation with EYG for the past three years and has taken pride in being able to help the community of East Riding and Hull at a local level.
Nick Ward, Managing Director at EYG, said: “We asked our suppliers for their support towards this great cause and once we explained what it was for they were more than happy to help.
“Spectus donated the components to enable us to manufacture windows and doors which were vital for the project. We’ve worked with the company for the past two decades and have been delighted with the support it has shown for this charity.”
Chris Powell, Business Development Director at Spectus, said: “A big benefit of the project has been uniting multiple businesses to help a great cause, despite the economic conditions and the hardships that some companies may be facing.
“We hope this latest work with the charity is the beginning of a long and rewarding relationship to the benefit of Hull’s community.”
