Midas makes generous donation to local Scout group
Sporty Scouts in South Devon will be taking to the water with new safety equipment thanks to a donation by Midas Group and client Blue Cedar Homes.
The companies teamed up to provide new kayaking helmets for the 1st Stoke Gabriel Scouts.
Midas, one of the UK’s largest privately-owned construction and property services providers, recently carried out preparation works on a site adjacent to the Scout Hall in Stoke Gabriel in advance of its development by existing client Blue Cedar Homes.
Steve McShane, Operations Manager at Midas, said the team struck up a positive relationship with the local community, often with one-to-one contact with groups and residents. One of the requirements to prepare the area for development was a south west water sewer diversion, as part of the diversion works access would be required to the Scout group playing field.
Steve added: “As a company committed to industry-leading customer service we always want to work closely with and have a positive impact in the communities we are working in – and of course we’re always looking to educate and inspire young people so that the construction industry is their potential career of choice for the future.
“The Scout group was so accommodating throughout, we felt it was important that we give something back to them for being so accommodating and supportive during the works.”
Midas has completed a number of projects on behalf of Blue Cedar Homes and Eagle1 over the past year.
Scout group chairman Philip Bolt said: “Stoke Gabriel Scout Group really appreciate the generous and practical donation of kayaking helmets made by Midas and Blue Cedar. The group is situated alongside the Mill Pool and River Dart and frequently kayak directly from their HQ. This makes the donation particularly valued by the group and gives a good demonstration of how well builders and developers can work adjacent to neighbouring properties.”
