Morganstone is committed to supporting the communities within which all of it’s projects are delivered and regularly participates and organises events to support the local communities where it delivers its contracts.
In July 2015 Site manager Ben Aubrey of the Imble Lane development, Pembroke Dock organised a charity cricket match. The match was kindly hosted by Pembroke Dock Cricket Club.
Pembroke Dock Cricket Club is adjacent to the Imble Lane development which is being constructed in partnership with housing provider Pembrokeshire Housing Association.
The aim of the match was to raise money for Autism Fledglings, a charity that specialises in early intervention for children with autism and pervasive developmental disorders. A total of £800 was raised on the night. Money raised was to support treatment for a little girl in Pembroke Dock, who has Autism and attends Autism Fledglings.
Staff at Autism Fledglings use a verbal behaviour approach and pivotal response training, which focuses on motivating children to learn. Staff are very hands on so that they can work with the children to teach them that learning is fun.
The event was a great success as it not only provided support treatment for a little girl with autism but also helped to link and integrate the site with the local community, by supporting the local cricket club adjacent to the site.
The Site manager has since received a thank you letter from the little girl’s mother letting him know that the funds raised have helped her progress and develop.
