Volunteers to the rescue

Community Hall Final

Two teams of volunteers from Television Centre have helped a Shepherd’s Bush non-profit organisation to refurbish their community hall.

The Mace volunteers were supporting the Anti-Tribalism Movement, which is dedicated to working towards a society where people are judged by merit and not where they come from.

The Movement’s community hall was in urgent need of refurbishment and the volunteers spent day one pulling up the old flooring and cutting the underlay, ready for the second team to lay a new laminate floor next day.

The renovated community centre, which is located next to Shepard’s Bush Market, will again become a hub for the local area after the enthusiastic help of the volunteers.

Reece Bailey, Mace Construction Manager at Television Centre, said: “It was great to get involved helping out the local community. However, the aches and pains the next day were not so great!”

Adam Matan, Manager at Anti-Tribalism Movement, said: “We are small organisation in Shepherd's Bush with a large community hall which needed urgent refurbishments. This came to the attention of Mace which decided to provided two days of volunteering by members of their staff to fit the new floorings.  We are very grateful, thank you a million times.”
