Community Matters; Our Continued Support For The Storehouse Project
The Storehouse Project, located in Billinge, provides a vital community service for some of the most vulnerable members of the Wigan community. Operating entirely on kind donations, the charity provides essential help to those who need it most in the form of food parcels, clothing, children’s toys, furniture and household essentials.
As a proud member of the local community, atg Evoqua became aware of the Storehouse Projects great work, and offered its help and support.
Earlier last year atg UV were able to provide a much needed replacement van for the Storehouse Project, in order for the charity to continue its valuable services. This year, our continued support includes food hampers, help with packing & distribution, and most recently the donation of a second van to aid the charity’s growing support network.
Rachel Dunn, Storehouse Project Manager kindly said: ‘atg UV have been absolutely amazing and a huge factor in the number of clients the Storehouse have been able to help over this past year. We are so grateful for their dedication and commitment, and their ability to help with anything and everything. From helping us to pack and deliver things, to their generous financial and material donations, they really have been a fantastic partner for the Storehouse Project and we look forward to another year of helping those in crisis in the Wigan & Leigh area!’

atg UV’s Deputy Managing Director, Mr Frans Conradie, explained how pleased he is that the company are able to support the Storehouse Project in a practical way; “The people involved in this charity humble me, they are the stars of the show here and it is a privilege to be able to get involved.”
