Work is centred on improving building

Have your say

Business advisers have been digging deep to give a Sheffield community centre a much-needed makeover.

The 24 volunteers from Grant Thornton have been redecorating Arbourthorne Community Centre as part of a joint project with the South Yorkshire Community Foundation, which is helping to fund the refurbishment.

The centre, on Edenhall Road, runs youth clubs, health and fitness sessions as well as providing classes for numeracy, literacy and IT.

However, the building needs some internal and external work to improve its appearance such as painting, refurbishment and gardening.

David Jones, of Grant Thornton, said: “It’s been great fun and very satisfying to transform the centre.”

SYCF raises funds to help people facing economic hardship and other barriers to aspiration.
