VolkerStevin delivers support to Sunderland residents

The VolkerStevin team working on the New Wear high-level Footbridge in Sunderland has delivered much-needed items to the city's vulnerable residents, after an event organised by the council.

Homeless people, ex-forces, vulnerable residents and families in need have benefited from a range of much-needed donations. VolkerStevin along with  Wates Group, Keir and National Grid attended an event at City Hall that was organised by the local authority to collect as many items of food, clothing, homeware and gift vouchers as possible.

Contractors were issued with shopping lists of essential items that would improve and add value to venues at the heart of Sunderland communities, who improve the lives of residents from across the city.

"It's great to be working collaboratively with other contractors that are working in and around the Riverside Sunderland Development on this. This kind of initiative really makes a difference and I’m proud that we are able to play a part in it.”
