Last month we worked with an incredible charity called Fareshare; an organisation that helps combat hunger and food waste by redistributing surplus food to charities that is then turned into meals for those in need.
Its Cardiff warehouse had come in for a spot of bother and 5 of its internal doors needed some repair work. With the organisation’s emphasis very much being on recycling and reuse, the team there was keen to get the repairs done in an environmentally friendly way, avoiding the need for anything to go to landfill if possible.
Recognising that this was our specialism, Fareshare approached us for some help.
We’re big fans of the work that Fareshare does, so we wanted to do our bit for its cause so consequently offered to carry out the work free of charge; an offer that Fareshare gratefully accepted.
Our finisher Martin Robins popped down to the centre and carried out some fantastic repairs to the doors.
Sarah Germain at Fareshare said: “We chose to look for a repair solution for the damage rather than having to replace all the doors. As a charity trying to reduce food waste, a waste free solution was important to us.”
She continued: “The experience of using Plastic Surgeon has been great. In-spite of it being a busy working environment with different people coming and going, the finisher kept himself to himself and didn’t cause any inconvenience. Each of the doors that needed repairing have now been filed and smoothed and even the wood grain patterning has been matched; to be honest you’d be hard pressed to identify exactly where the original damage was. A big thumbs up as far as we’re concerned: punctual, friendly, diligent and effective. Many, many thanks!”
Josh Wildeman, Marketing Co-Ordinator at Plastic Surgeon said: “We’re always proud to support fantastic charities, especially during the festive season when so many need an extra helping hand. We do what we can to save things from landfill, and Fareshare, while operating a very different organisation, shares a similar outlook. It saves foodstuff from landfill to reuse in the community and that’s something we firmly believe in. We’re delighted to have been able to help in a small way.”
