As part of our community engagement programme we have undertaken the refurbishment of the Blue Hut with a family run painting and decorating company based in Hackney. The Blue Hut is a community youth centre adjacent to our site that offers services to young people aged between 8 – 25 years old. These services include health and wellbeing, youth offending, alternative education, creative activities, enterprise and employment and life skills.

Penny Munday, Quality Manager at Blue Hut stated: “We are very grateful for the amazing work that McLaren did at The Blue Hut. The space looks brighter and feels more open as its sparkling white. The young people have noticed the difference as well.”

The Blue Hut refurbishment was completed in time for the charity to open for the new school year. The charity was delighted with the refurbishment and how the staff and the children appreciated our support. This means that they can now use the funds that were going towards the redecoration to supporting children’s projects in the future.
