BITC 2016 Give and Gain day is an annual global annual event which seeks to involve organisations and businesses to come together and volunteer and support the communities they work within. The Give and Gain day assists community organisations, social enterprises and schools that can benefit from the support in the form of volunteer time and donated materials to complete projects that they would not normally have the funds or time to complete.
As part of this year’s Give and Gain Day RCT Homes brought together a group of partners to carry out much needed works to Bryncelynnog Comprehensive School, Beddau. RCT Homes, Morganstone Ltd, Tom Pritchard Contractors and Dulux Trade came together to renew the fence to the eco area in the school, renovate and paint an extensive area of the school railings at the front of the school and smarten up the planters in the car parking area. Much preparation took place before the day by the group partners RCT Homes, Bryncelynog School, Morganstone Ltd, Tom Pritchard Contractors and Dulux Trade in order to ensure that the works needed to take place on the day could be completed. We were very grateful for some very generous donations from materials to complete the works from Dulux Trade, Jewson, Toppers Wales, Keyline BM, Supply UK, Greenhams and Tiger Supplies Ltd.
The day was a fantastic success and a great example of how organisations pulling together can support local communities with RCT Homes, Bryncelynnog School, Morganstone Ltd, Tom Pritchard Contractors, Dulux Trade, Police Community Support Officers, Le Trucco Design, Strongs Partnerships, Hugh James Solicitors and BSC Recruitment volunteering together to complete the works. The school benefitted greatly with the works carried out by improving the facilities within the school and the overall image of the school at the main entrance.
