When workers from fit-out and construction company S&T (UK) Ltd were working on the refurbishment of The Russell Hotel, WC1 recently, they found out that the nearby Marchmont Community Centre hadn’t been able to use its disabled lift for 16 months because they didn’t have the £13,000 needed to repair it.
This has meant that at least half of the centre’s older and disabled community members (upwards of 150 people) have been unable to attend computer classes, social activities and the Older People’s Forum which are held in their basement.
S&T wanted to give back to the community, so when S&T Operations Manager Ian Barnham and Senior Project Manager Steve Burgess met up with Diane Fisher, who runs the centre, they offered to repair the lift for free.
S&T representatives also revamped the centre from changing and replacing light bulbs, to donating a working printer and stationery supplies.
