Polypipe Building Services supports local charity
Monday 17th January 2022
As part of its community activities, each year Polypipe Building Services supports a charity to raise funds and lend a hand to much-needed charitable services. This year has seen Polypipe Building Services support Dandelion Time, a Kent-based organisation that transforms the lives of vulnerable children through nature.
Polypipe Building Services has supported Dandelion Time on the build of its new home in West Farleigh. The site was once an old working farm with various outbuildings, which have now been converted into different treatment centres for the children.
The new centre means Dandelion Time can keep doing the tremendous work for the community.
Speaking of the project, Mick & Sue from Polypipe Building Services said: “Here at Polypipe Building Services we believe it is important to support the community through offering help to local charities. We feel like we can make a big difference here. A few years back we supported Leybourne Grange Riding Centre for the Disabled, where we helped raise funds to buy equipment.”
“We had planned a quiz night to raise money for Dandelion Time, however plans were thwarted due to Covid” continued Mick & Sue. “Thankfully, we were able to offer our support in another way: through providing stock to help build the new centre.”
“The work that Dandelion Time does for the Kent community is simply wonderful,” said Mick & Sue. “We love to receive images of the project to see what Dandelion Time has achieved. It’s been a privilege to be involved on this build.”
Based in Maidstone, and with a branch in Ashford, Dandelion Time was founded in 2003 by Dr Caroline Jessel. The charity offers help to children with very challenging emotional issues, often resulting from trauma, violence or serious health difficulties. The service recognises the importance of being in a peaceful natural environment, which helps vulnerable children to discuss and explore the difficulties they are facing. The approach also enables the wider family to come together to build stronger bonds.
