Scotland’s strongest fenestration company, Sidey, has built a well-earned reputation as a passionate champion of the environment, especially when it comes to community projects.
One such project that Sidey is supporting is LAMH Recycle Ltd, a social enterprise scheme in Motherwell that provides training, volunteering and work opportunities for people facing barriers to employment.
As well as providing a monthly donation of £100 to LAMH, Sidey also gives all old IT equipment to the thriving project for them to refurbish, recycle and resell.
Items they can benefit from include PC towers, hard drives, laptops, monitors, printers, desk, chairs, filing cabinets, cupboards and bookcases.
Funds raised allow LAMH Recycle Ltd to offer customised training programmes and help to combat the range of issues that can stand in the way of finding employment, such as focused work experience, CV writing and free access to their job search computer suite.
Steve Hardy, Sidey Managing Director, commented: “We’re passionate about giving something back to the local community.
“LAMH’s policy of refurbish, recycle and resell fits in well with our own strong environmental philosophies and we’re really pleased to provide them with ongoing support.
“The support they are giving to disadvantaged people in Scotland is invaluable and we encourage other local businesses to get involved.”
