Phoenix Trust benefits from community effort
Two huge packages containing portable cabins recently arrived by express delivery at the Phoenix Trust, the Milton-based charity.
When Neil Cook, group director at design and fit-out company COEL, learned that Martin Mace from Supplant, a plant tech company located on Cambridge Science Park, no longer needed the two cabins, he looked to find a way to put them to good use.
Neil knew that the Phoenix Trust required storage to keep their materials and products, secure, dry and protected and felt the cabins were the perfect solution.
With Martin kindly agreeing to donate the cabins to the Phoenix Trust, Welch’s Specialist Movements agreed to deliver them.
Neil said: “I would like to thank Martin Mace from Supplant and the team at the Welch Group for their proactive and invaluable contribution to the process, without which none of this would have been possible. The Phoenix Trust is a charity close to the heart of COEL and we are very happy to have been able to reach out to the Cambridge business community to help the Phoenix Trust in their sterling work.”
Martin, from Supplant said: “Donating the storage cabins to such a fantastic organisation was my pleasure, and I look forward to seeing them in their new home. I hope the Phoenix Trust can now keep their supplies secure and sheltered from the worst of the British weather.”
Julie Payne, at The Welch Group, said: “Welch’s Specialist Movements is one several businesses belonging to The Welch Group a company proud to be founded on ‘family values.’ This is reflected in our ethos to the local community, and so when we were approached regarding the delivery of the cabins to The Phoenix Trust, we did all we could to help. We are delighted to have been able to help the charity, enabling them in their incredible work.”
Jude Tustian, at The Phoenix Trust, said: “We are very grateful to all those involved in this donation – a true team effort, from COEL, Supplant and The Welch Group – thank you one and all.”
