That warm fuzzy feeling...
At Ben Johnson Ltd we’re keen to support our local community and good causes that come across our path. When a contact of ours put us in touch with York mentoring charity The Island, we knew we’d love to help.
The Island is a registered charity, which provides a mentoring service to vulnerable 8-13 year olds in York. By linking young people with fully-trained volunteer mentors, the charity are able to offer them consistent, one-to-one support over a period of 12 months.
We heard they were in need of some task chairs, and as that’s kinda our “thing” we were able to help them out free of charge, meaning they could save valuable resources for their most important work. Maria from The Island got in touch to say thanks:
“My name is Maria and I am emailing on behalf of The Island charity that you so kindly donated office chairs to.
May I begin by saying thank you and how extremely grateful we are for your donation. It has made a huge difference to our office environment, as we are all able to now sit and work in comfort!
As I am sure you can imagine, the opportunity for us as a small charity to replace all our office chairs was something that we did not see possible so were making do with the second hand chairs we had. The expense saved is money that will provide funding for activities and sessions that our mentors and young people complete each week.“
Don’t you just love helping people out?
