SES supports Hospitality and Hope


South Tyneside charity, Hospitality and Hope recently received a helping hand from volunteers from leading national engineering specialist, SES Engineering Services (SES), as part of the business’ nationwide ‘Reshaping Tomorrow’ week.

Set up in 2002, Hospitality and Hope supports people, including individuals and families, in crisis across South Tyneside.

The Christian faith project welcomed the volunteers from SES’ north east office, who took time out of their day jobs to carry out a deep clean of the facilities including the kitchen, food bank and communal areas as well helping to organise and sort the much-needed food and clothing donations.

While on site, the SES volunteers worked closely with Joe Winder, responsible for food bank operations, volunteer co-ordinator, Maureen Gribben and the charity’s community housing co-ordinator, Neill Toomey and heard first-hand how important and valued their contribution was.

Commenting on the valuable contribution, Joe Winder said: “I would like to say a sincere thank you to SES for the donation of clothing and employees’ time. This generosity and kindness reflects the best in Christian ethics on which our organisation is founded and helps us to help those in need.”

This volunteer project forms part of ‘Reshaping Tomorrow’ week, a national programme that coincided with National Volunteers’ Week. Throughout the week the business’ employees donated their time to help local good causes.

Speaking about the volunteer’s desire to help, South Shields man and SES’ Business Director North, Steve Joyce added: “Once more, both the company and its employees have shown their willingness to support a very worthy organisation which is dedicated to making a difference to people in need in South Tyneside. I’m delighted that our employees in the region respond each year with such eagerness and a strong desire to help people within the communities in which we live and work, who are less fortunate than others”.
