Doing our bit for the community by helping local MS charity
Here at DRS, we take our responsibility as a company to our local community very seriously, helping many local charities and other organisations when we can.
So we were delighted to be able to help the South Wales Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, by repurposing and restoring their premises on the Enterprise Park, Swansea, to ensure they are fit and ready for new tenants following a move by the charity to bigger and better purpose-built premises nearby.
The charity’s work is close to the heart of one of our colleagues and it was a privilege to be able to help in this way.
Two of our staff worked on the site for around two weeks to restore the building to its original condition, which included the redevelopment of the charity’s unit into three smaller offices, each of which needed its own lighting and power units fitted and supplied while all distribution boards in the building needed to be replaced, tested and inspected.
The South Wales Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre offers a range of therapies to support those that live with MS including oxygen therapy, reflexology, exercise and holistic therapies. It also helps individuals with Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Strokes, ME, Wound Healing, Fibromyalgia, Diabetic Ulcers, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fractures, and various injuries; all treatment takes place in a very relaxed friendly atmosphere.
Christine Jones, Centre Manager from the South Wales Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre said:
‘This job was a substantial worry and financial drain to us in this difficult time, two staff were two knights in white vans, I have nothing but praise for the work they did and the diligence they applied to the task. DRS is certainly a company living up to its promises to help the community and this community of over 150 disabled people are very grateful to Mark and his team.’
Mark Phillips, our managing director, said:
“We understand our responsibility to our local community and it is fantastic to be able to use our skills to help a local charity in this way. The charity had the opportunity to move to much better premises and this work will ensure they can continue their good work without any concerns about the legacy of their old premises, which are now fit for three new tenants.”
