Construction firm Cruden deliver community cash boost after building new Thenue homes
A partnership between construction company Cruden and Thenue housing has seen three hardworking community groups in the east-end of Glasgow receive a ‘Community Benefits’ donation. Cruden are continuing to build Thenue’s new homes for rent in Abercromby Street.
The following community groups recieved donations:
- The Kindness Project - awarded £2,000.
- North East Recovery Community - awarded £2,000.
- We Are With You (formerly known as “Addaction”) - awarded £1,000.
The Kindness Project provides relief to Glasgow’s homeless community while North East Recovery assists women recover from addiction and runs a regular café in Calton. We Are With You also helps people recover from addiction issues with an emphasis on wellbeing.
77 affordable flats and houses are being built at Abercromby Street not far from Thenue’s London Road offices and due for completion this year.
Charles Turner, Chief Executive of Thenue Housing, thanked Cruden for their donation to help the community. He said: “We are delighted that three organisations which do such vital work in the east end are recipients of Cruden’s financial support. This money will undoubtedly help them continue the essential role they perform in our community.”
Gordon Lee from Cruden Building said: “Cruden is proud to build communities and not just new homes. As well as providing energy-efficient, affordable housing, it’s a privilege to provide support to each of these local groups, whose important work is making such a difference to the community.”
Georgie McConnell of We Are With You said: “We very grateful for the grant and will be using it to support our community gardening project known as Roots to Recovery. We set up the Roots garden project to offer people in recovery access to nature, horticulture, and community. Thank you so much."
