Our ‘growing potential’ project that brought together Gainsborough students and our elderly residents has won a top community award!
The project with Gainsborough Academy won the ‘Collaborative Working’ award at the Building Communities Awards.
The growing potential project which you can read about here saw green-fingered students from the Gainsborough Academy help transform the communal areas at Pillared House and Newlands Court.
The awards, which were presented by TV personality Russell Grant, were held in Nottingham and celebrated the professionalism, excellence and innovation sitting at the heart of the East Midlands’ construction and housing community in both the public and the private sectors.
Hannah Taylor-Dales, our Fundraising Coordinator, said: “It’s great to see such a brilliant partnership project get the recognition. The project helped so many people and brought a lot of happiness to our sheltered residents. This project is a great example of the positive outcomes from partnership working.”
