Staff from Northern Rock Asset Management (NRAM) spent the last week volunteering for Sunderland Samaritans by renovating their branch.
A total of 36 staff at the mortgage provider, which has offices at Doxford Business Park, swapped their computers for paintbrushes in an effort to completely redecorate the training, meeting, and operations rooms of the branch based on Stockton Road in Sunderland.
Samaritans offers round-the-clock confidential support by phone, email, letter and face-to-face for people anyone feeling down, unhappy, anxious or stressed.
After 30 years at its premises, Sunderland Samaritans hasn’t had the funds or resource to redecorate the branch until now.
Nigel Charlesworth, spokesman for NRAM said:“Our staff had a fantastic time renovating Sunderland Samaritans. The charity offers a truly unique service to people in the local community and it is reassuring to know that they are on hand 24:7 should anyone need their support. This project allowed us to help using the skills that we already have and give something back.”
Allan Monkhouse, Director of Sunderland Samaritans said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to all the NRAM staff who worked so hard, without their help, we would have really struggled to get the branch redecorated. The entire building has been given a complete facelift and so many of our volunteers have commented on what a huge difference it has made.
“We have of volunteering opportunities like this at our branch, if you would like to find out more please call 0191 514 3296."
