NEWBURY Football Club’s clubhouse in Faraday Road has been given a much-needed sprucing up by a team of volunteers from Vodafone.
Around 25 employees from the telecoms giant, whose HQ is based in Newbury, took part in the team challenge organised by Volunteer Centre West Berkshire.
The group tackled the task of improving the outside of the building by repainting the exterior and fixing new plastic cladding, breathing new life into the facility.
The Vodafone Foundation also contributed towards the cost of the materials and equipment used on the day.
Team member Annette McGowan said: “The day was a huge success.
“The transformation of the outside was fantastic.
“The team worked very hard to achieve the results we got.
“Many thanks to the volunteer centre for helping to arrange the day and to local suppliers – HSS Hire, Buildbase and The Fascia Place – for ensuring we had the tools, materials and equipment needed to make it happen.”
As well as organising volunteer days, Volunteer Centre West Berkshire also offers direct services for elderly, infirm and vulnerable people, including Newbury Community Car Scheme, Newbury Handybus, Newbury Shopmobility and Village Agents.
