Colleagues from the Cadbury Pensions team in Bournville have been showing off their artistic flair recently by spending the day painting and decorating at the Midland Heart owned Helen Dixon House in Moseley, Birmingham.
Helen Dixon House provides safe and supportive housing for women aged 25 and over. The colleagues from the Cadbury site in Bournville helped to paint and decorate the communal areas and assisted with general maintenance work.
Judith Cross, operations manager for supported housing at Midland Heart, said:
“It was an amazing day, the team worked so hard to brighten up the corridors and communal areas; it has helped to create a warm and welcoming environment for residents and staff to enjoy.
“We presented the team with a special plaque to say thank you for their continued hard work, support and enthusiasm over the years, they have been a pleasure to work with!”
The day with Midland Heart comes as part of a longstanding relationship between Cadbury and the organisation. Last year, over 150 employees from Kraft Foods and Cadbury volunteered with the organisation as part of Kraft Foods’ Make a Delicious Difference Week.
Allan Whalley, pensions director at the Cadbury site in Bournville, said:
“Everyone at Kraft Foods is dedicated to supporting local organisations such as Midland Heart. They provide vital support in our communities and we are happy to help them in any way we can. We’re looking forward to continuing our close relationship with them and supporting on other projects in the future.”
