Truckloads of support on offer for Working World

Evesham Editorial 9th Dec, 2017   0

A CARING Radford based truck hire company have dug deep to sponsor new hoodies for a local training centre for adults with learning difficulties.

MHF UK Ltd near Inkberrow specialise in demountable and tipper vehicles and have lent their support to Evesham based Working World.

Founded in 1975 by current Managing Director Martin Fernihough, the company were inspired to help another local cause following their donation of Christmas trees for both Rous Lench and Inkberrow villages.

Working World Evesham is a training centre for people with a learning disability who need a little extra support getting into the workplace.

The centre is based at the Adventure Playground in Woodlands and currently supports more than 30 clients, aged between 19 and 53 years old.

Some of their clients go on to work for other local employers, some combine a part time job with visits to Working World while others spend their time volunteering at the centre.

Helen Hurdman, project manager at Working World, said: “The clients’ old hoodies were looking a little tatty so we decided to do some fund-raising for new ones.

After speaking with Guy at MHF they kindly offered to help fund the new hoodies. It’s a real help and the clients love them.”

Guy Fernihough. director at MHF UK Ltd said: “We are more than happy to help a great local cause like Working World.

“It’s lovely to see the work they do and it’s nice to see our logo on something a little different.

“We do a lot for the local community, most of our business is nationwide but we haven’t forgotten the local area.”
