Project 5000


Our North West team are working on behalf of Adra on their kitchen, bathroom and rewire refurbishment works.  

Adra look after 6,300 homes and provide services to over 14,000 local customers. Their goal is that these are affordable and reliable. They are the largest Social Housing provider in North Wales.  
Over the last 6 months, Contracts Manager, Steve Hands, and his team have built up a fantastic relationship with Adra by providing high-quality work and excellent customer service. 
Social Value is always at the heart of what we do, we are motivated by positive impacts made in the communities we work. 
As part of our Giving Back initiative,  we were delighted to support Adra by donating our time to a charitable project located in the heart of North Wales. 

Award winning entertainment programme Prosiect Pum Mil, presenters Emma Walford and Trystan Ellis-Morris travelled the length and breadth of Wales trying to create community projects for just £5000. During the series they create a sensory garden for local charity “Seren” at the Gwesty Seren Hotel. 
Seren was established in 1996 with the main aim of offering professional support for people with learning disabilities and is now highly regarded as one of the most innovative organisations in its field. It has, over the years, developed a package of projects and activities, all of which are aimed at enhancing the quality of life not only of the individuals with learning disabilities but their families. 
Gwesty Seren Hotel is the most recent addition to their commercial operations. Opened in 2014 the project was specifically designed to also accommodate people with both physical and learning disabilities. Gwesty Seren was and still is an innovative project, the only facility of its kind in Wales. The hotel is available for respite facility as well as providing disabled people and their families and/or carers with a holiday experience that is specifically designed for them. It is based in the middle of Snowdonia, surrounded by some of the finest scenery in the middle of Wales. 

We feel it is hugely important to create and maintain great relationships with our supply chain. 
SW Joinery is a trusted contractor we use, businesses owner Steve Donnelly was keen to become involved in the project and kindly donated his and his operative’s time also. Our contribution to the sensory garden was to create and build a pergola, after careful planning from Contracts Manager, Steve Hands, and Seren Director, Angela Middleton Jones and team, the project went ahead.  
Again, we would like to thank SW Joinery for their time in building the pergola and our team in assisting with the project.
