Bristol Sea Cadets get makeover from Midas
Staff from a Bristol construction firm donated their time and skills to help transform a much loved local building used by the Bristol Adventure Sea Cadets and Royal Marine Cadets.
TS Adventure is one of the oldest units in the country, located in converted Dockers’ cottages in the heart of the historic Bristol Docks.
Staff from The Midas Group organised the makeover as part of the company’s annual community engagement initiative. The team have completed three days labour and materials; helping to provide the cadets with a fresher, more modern unit. The work involved ‘tanking’ a wall, preparing, painting and decorating the main hall; fitting new kitchen units and worktop; and installing new electric storage heaters. If the unit had to pay for the work to be completed it would be been in excess of £7,000.
Rob Bradley, Executive Director at Midas said: “A core part of our company ethic is to make sure that we invest in the communities which we live and work in. Our staff were delighted to donate their skills and experience to help refurbish this important community facility which has been part of the Bristol community for over a hundred years.”
“I’d especially like to thank our sub-contractors and suppliers who have donated time, materials and plant in support of making this happen.”
Special thanks goes to the following companies for their generous donations and support: Advanced Waste Management Ltd (skip), Fastglobe Ltd (wall tanking), Fusion Decorating Contractors Ltd (Painter Decorators), Jeff Way Electrical Services Ltd (electrical support), Jewson Ltd (materials), PG Architectural Coatings Ltd (Johnstone’s paint), and Speedy Hire Plc (scaffold & plant).
