Hughes supports new North Norfolk initiative

In Industry News On

Hughes Electrical has supported a new initiative in North Norfolk designed to help local people with learning difficulties by donating and installing a 55in TV at the Sheringham Community Hub on Cromer Road.

The Community Hub, run by Independence Matters, can support 20 people a day and is designed to teach the skills necessary to enable them to live as independent a life as possible. It also looks to find positions in local organisations to help them integrate into the community.

Sheringham Hub 1“We have two rooms where we teach ‘independence skills’ such as how to be a good host, the value of money, how to use bank cards, safety issues, how to cook and how to use public transport,” explained Sheringham Hub team manager Denis Coogans.

“We like to support local business and so approached Hughes in Cromer about a cooker, fridge and vacuum cleaner which were our main priorities. We also wanted a TV but did not have the budget so were amazed and delighted when Hughes offered to donate and install a top of the range set for us.”

Hughes Cromer manager Simon Morton said: “We know Denis and his team will be doing a great job and it’s a real boost to the community of North Norfolk.

“We were delighted to play our part by donating a TV knowing that it will play a vital role in helping to equip people with the necessary skills to lead an independent life.”
