Supporting the communities where we work…

Project7 Construction supports employees who wish to volunteer within the communities we work in. Last week a team of over 40 volunteers from Project7, MACE and the London Legacy Corporation got together for a volunteer day to transform The Terence Brown Arc adventure playground by repainting the structure.

AAA, which stands for Ambition, Aspire, Achieve, is a new young people’s organisation in East London which aims to provide new opportunities and sustained positive outcomes for local youngsters

The Terence Brown Arc in Canning Town is AAA's flagship adventure play, sports and youth hub running projects year-round. The Arc provides a Newham-wide delivery and resource base for young people with disabilities and/or additional needs and their families. The Arc is being treated as a local project for MACE’s staff and supply chain, and together will carry out 12 different construction processes, worth an estimated £300,000 in total, in order to further improve the Arc.

Danny Dwyer, Divisional Director of Project7 said:

“It was inspiring to be working alongside some amazing people on this local community project. Everybody worked hard to pull it all together. It was also a great for team building and developing our relationship with the other volunteers. We are already committed to supporting this project with further construction projects over the next few months”

Other planned works, which are being conducted free of charge to the centre, range from a floodlit all weather pitch to a new mezzanine floor in the main building.

Speaking about the generous donation by all the corporate volunteers and AAA’s other supporters, Kevin Jenkins OBE, the group’s founder said:

“The support given is making a real difference by changing the lives of the disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk children that we work with daily.”
