LOCAL metal recycler, EMR, has agreed to continue to support Old Hall People’s Partnership, a charity at the centre of the Bentley community.
EMR based on Bentley Road, is again supporting the charity’s ‘starter pack’ programme that gives people who have fallen on tough times the basic living essentials.
The pack contains essential items anyone needs for their home such as bedding, duvet, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery.
Last year the programme supported over 50 vulnerable families across Bentley, Walsall and EMR is again supporting the programme by giving funding to support more families.
Old Hall People’s Partnership Principle Officer, Denise Birkett said: “Our partnership with EMR has enabled us to provide this most needed help across the area.
“We are delighted that EMR is supporting the ‘starter pack’ programme again. This programme supports the most vulnerable of our community and makes a difference to people’s lives when they need it the most.
“The support from EMR is making a big difference to our projects and the people of Bentley. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at EMR!”
EMR Area Manager, Steve Cunningham said: “At EMR we put a great deal of importance on supporting the communities that are close to our sites and we are delighted to have a partnership with an organisation that makes such a difference.
“Old Hall People’s Partnership supports everyone from struggling single parents, isolated older people, children in desperate need, the homeless, victims of domestic violence, and countless others in between.
“These packs give those who have no or little belongings the things we all need in our homes.”
