Dream of creating community hub in Norwich gets closer thanks to local business support

In Industry News On

The Community Sports Foundation (Norwich) has seen its dream of creating a community hub at Horsford, on the outskirts of the city, come a step closer with the help of a local firm.

When complete, The Nest will have an indoor sports hall, football pitches, classroom, gym and a lot more. Much of the work at The Nest is in helping the less able to enjoy sport, particularly football, and it is currently home to a Down syndrome squad, power chair squad, Under 12 & Under 17s and adult disability squad.

Until now the dirty kit has had to be sent away to be cleaned, involving unwanted expenses. However, Hughes Electrical has stepped in and handed over two Hoover Candy washing machines and two tumble dryers, now installed in a new laundry room at The Nest.

“This will make a big difference to us, enabling us to save on our laundry costs,” said Jackie Thornton, head of development at the Sports Foundation. “So, a big thank you to Hughes and Hoover  Candy for their generous support.”

Added Jamie Grimson from Hughes: “The Nest is a great project that will bring huge benefits to the area, meaning many more people will be able to take part in some kind of sporting activity, including those with special needs.

“Therefore we, with our friends from Hoover Candy, were delighted to be able to contribute in some way to the success of The Nest which is regenerating a former derelict part of the city.”
