West Norwood based firm Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd is continuing to generously support local community projects with donations totaling £45,000.
It has made a £20,000 donation to Rathbone Youth Centre's Inspiring Learning Project. This is the second year of a three year commitment. As Charline King, Head of Children and Young People' Services says, "We would like to thank Winn and Coales for their long-term support. This three year funding from Winn & Coales has been crucial in enabling us to be able to offer long-term mentoring and education support. The three-year funding enables us to build and strengthen our relationships with the young people and their families, to be fully embedded with our community and partner schools and to provide continuous support over time to young people to make progress with their learning."
Also, in response to the cost of living crisis, Winn & Coales has made a £25,000 donation to Norwood and Brixton Foodbank. As energy bills and food prices rise, more and more local residents are being pulled into crisis. The Foodbank is facing significant growing need in what is likely to be a very busy winter. This donation will enable the Foodbank to lease an electric van and hire a driver for a year so as to expand the number of home deliveries they can make to clients that find it difficult to make it to the centres. This will be particularly beneficial to elderly and disabled clients.
