Doing it for the kids

Bell Group Stoke were delighted to support the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre in Skegness with redecoration works, alongside our long-term client Derby Homes, for the 6th consecutive year.

Key team members, Keith Prince (Branch Manager) and Bob Godfrey (Site Supervisor) have gone back to their roots putting on their ‘whites’. Using their years of knowledge and skills to support this amazing centre and give key areas a fresh coat of paint.

Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre is a charity which was established in 1891 to provide Derbyshire children having troubles in their home lives with a holiday in Skegness, Lincolnshire. It currently provides 660 holiday places per season.

The experience provides endless opportunity for contributing to the personal and social development of the children, making it clear to them that they are accepted as worthwhile individuals. The development of the children's self-esteem, attitudes and behaviour can be significant during the period. Opportunities for personal development are created for the children, whatever their strengths and abilities. For many children the relationships gained remain with them throughout their lives.

Keith Prince, Bell Group Stoke Branch Manager said’ “It’s great to work so closely with the local community. Every year I look forward to supporting the children’s holiday centre and giving something back. I started my career as an apprentice and I’ve really enjoyed getting back on the tools and supporting this fantastic cause alongside Derby homes again”.
