Liverpool’s Frank Rogers Building Contractors have recently been carrying out upgrades of some of our customers’ windows and doors, but have also demonstrated their complete commitment to social value. The family-run company donated £3,000 to our winter appeal last year, in addition to donating 10 Samsung tablets to enable some of our customers to access online services and connect with family and friends during lockdown. They have also created several apprenticeship roles within their organisation to help Plus Dane customers and other members of the community who are looking to develop their skills, and get valuable training and employment.
In addition to all of this, Frank Rogers worked with their partners, Walker Engineering, to install a new access ramp at Target Football, a Community Interest Company in Toxteth. Target Football provides the local community with a wide range of football activities and outreach support, while also providing quality sporting opportunities for young people. They have also delivered meals and supplies to people isolating throughout the pandemic, and are aiming to open a community hub and café space in future.
Our strategic partnership manager Sian Martin-Baez said: “It has been brilliant to be work with partners who share our commitment to delivering social value for local communities. We’d like to thank Frank Rogers and their team for their contribution towards Target Football and their fantastic new facilities, which is a real asset right in the heart of one of our communities.”
Barry Fallows, director at Frank Rogers, said: “We have worked with Plus Dane now for more than ten years, and in that time delivered a variety of projects, installing everything from kitchen and bathrooms to fire doors and windows. We have always engaged with community initiatives Plus Dane have been involved in, so when we secured a further five year contract as one of their trusted contractors, we were only too happy to show our support once again. It is a big ethos of our company policy to give back to the local community we work with, and look forward to continuing the partnership we have with Plus Dane.”
Andy Ritson, general manager of Walker Engineering, said: “It was a pleasure to work with the Frank Rogers team to deliver this ramp, and what an incredible gesture by Frank Rogers in supporting the community in this way.”
Paul Hurford of Target Football said: "We are delighted to have received support from Plus Dane and their partners to install a new access ramp at Admiral Park. This will enable parents and people with mobility issues to participate in all community events and activities, with the aim of reducing social isolation. Now, anyone using wheels can use and enjoy the great facilities we have to offer.”
