KibbleWorks has received support to help young people gain skills for the construction trade. Toolstation made the £1000 donation from the money generated by the 5p carrier bag charge at their stores across Scotland.
The state of the art tools purchased from the money have allowed young people to learn about joinery and mechanics. KibbleWorks in McKean Street operates an exciting and diverse range of vocational programmes aimed at young people who may have felt challenged or out of place in a mainstream educational environment.
Eileen Cummings, Head of Young Workforce Development at KibbleWorks, said:
“Kibbleworks are really grateful to Toolstation for their continued support and generous donation to assist in helping young people in Paisley and surrounding areas gain qualifications and experience in the construction industry.”
Graeme Boyd, regional manager at Toolstation for the area including Paisley, said:
“We’re very pleased to be able to donate to charities such as KibbleWorks, which is located close to several of our branches. The work they all do in providing practical training, qualifications and support in construction skills to disadvantaged young people across the country not only makes a huge difference to individuals and communities, but also helps the industry benefit from new and enthusiastic talent at a time when skills shortages in the construction trade are growing.”
