Securitas volunteers for St. Joseph’s play facility refurbishment

04 September 2018

Securitas joined forces with volunteers from Wooden Spoon and Rugbytots to refurbish an outdoor play area for Surrey based St Joseph’s – a specialist school and college for children with complex learning needs.

Organised by Fusion Community Initiatives, the team of volunteers worked together to turn a barren area of grass into an attractive adventure playground featuring a play tractor and trailer, huge octagonal pagoda with seating and arbour entrance with raised planters. The build was delivered in just one day and will leave a lasting legacy for the children at St. Joseph’s.

Shaun Kennedy, Director of Specialist Protective Services at Securitas UK, was a volunteer on the day and commented: “It was a pleasure and a privilege to take part in this project, creating something special for the children of St. Joseph’s to enjoy. I worked on the play tractor and trailer element of the build and was very proud of the finished result.

The build was also a great opportunity to exercise project management, team building and an array of other practical skills. I would urge any organisation to support Fusion in developing and bringing to life community initiatives to help change the lives of those in need.

Fusion strives to partner companies and charities with local communities; creating tangible project opportunities which will make a real difference. I’m grateful to their CEO James O’Malley for the opportunity to be a part of this project and would encourage others to work with Fusion on such worthwhile and rewarding initiatives.

We are currently exploring the possibility of a joint project with Securitas management and the Fire Cadets.”
