Staff at catering equipment provider Nisbets have pitched in to help out members of their local community this Christmas.
Volunteers from the ‘Nisbets in the Community’ scheme spent the early part of last week painting and decorating the Avonmouth Community Centre, in the suburb of Bristol where Nisbets is based.
Recent budget cuts meant that the centre’s much-needed revamp had to be postponed, but Nisbets was able to use its community scheme to step in and save the day.
The company donated tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and glasses to the centre.
It also supplied a Christmas tree, decorations, crackers and music for a special Christmas lunch put on for 100 Avonmouth residents.
Alv Hirst, the centre’s manager, said the organisation was extremely grateful for Nisbets’ help.
“It has been an incredible week and it is wonderful that everything has culminated in this Christmas party involving a cross-section of the community,” he said. “The centre is the hub of the community and I am so pleased that this will make the difference for many months and years to come.”
