Wokingham Borough Community Response (WBCR) are thrilled to have received a generous donation from contractor Reds10, which will help them to continue their vital work to support the most vulnerable across the borough.
The WBCR has been set up to support those who are in need of extra help at this time. The council are working in partnership with town and parish councils, voluntary groups, community organisations and charities, neighbourhoods and individuals to provide borough-wide support.
Food and other essentials have been received from local residents and businesses, as well as monetary donations throughout the current crisis which have been vital to the success of WBCR.
Reds10, a contractor currently involved in a number of projects in the borough, including a Special Education Needs extension at Addington School and a new Dinton Activity Centre, have donated £1,250 to the WBCR.
“We really wanted to give something back to the local community during this extremely challenging time” said Michael Ruddick, commercial director at Reds10.
“Reds10 were glad to be able to help with our donation to the Wokingham Borough Community Response. It is inspiring to see how the local community volunteers and WBC leisure team are pulling together to help those most in need in the borough during this difficult time.”
Cllr Charles Margetts, executive member for health, wellbeing and adult services, said, “The Wokingham Borough Community Response has been a great comfort and support to so many of our residents throughout this current crisis and the great work that is being done has been helped tremendously by the kind donations we have received. However large or small, your donations ensure we can continue to look after the residents who need our support and we are truly grateful to everyone at Red10 and all our local businesses and residents who have donated money, food and other essentials.”
