Morgan Sindall donates furniture to charity

Children and young people have benefitted from donations of furniture from a London-based construction company.

Morgan Sindall handed over desks, cupboards and stationery from its former project base at Angel Gate, London, to a children and young people’s charity and a local school.

The furniture has been gratefully received by the NCB, based in Wakley Street, EC1, which supports children, young people and their families and those who work with them and also the Richard Cloudesley special day school in Golden Lane, EC1.

“We recently moved out of our former business unit at the Angel Gate complex and were left with a lot of furniture we no longer needed,” says Adrian Barnes, Morgan Sindall area director. “We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of all our working practices by recycling wherever possible and we wanted to donate the furniture to a good cause.

“The NCB and Richard Cloudesley School are both nearby and we are delighted to be able to help them make a difference to the well-being of children and young people through our donation.”

The furniture will be used by pupils at Richard Cloudesley’s secondary department. The school, graded “outstanding” by Ofsted, offers both education and health services to meet the needs of pupils with physical and associated special educational needs, including medical difficulties and language, communication and learning difficulties.

NCB undertakes around 60 projects each year to improve the lives of children and young people, especially the most vulnerable. The donation of furniture to NCB will benefit both the children and young people the charity works with and its London-based staff.
