THE premises of cancer support group for people in Widnes and Runcorn have been refurbished in a project that aimed 'to give something back to the community'.

Merseyside-based repairs and maintenance company, Sovini Property Services completed the revamp of Widnes & Runcorn Cancer Support Group as part of their commitment to social value through the Fusion21 framework.

The agreement provides a comprehensive mechanism through which clients can procure services necessary to support the delivery of their stock investment and maintenance programmes.

SPS secured a contract with Halton Housing through the Fusion 21 framework to deliver domestic heating installations on a planned end of year maintenance programme.

Steven Parker, director of Sovini Property Services, said: "This was a great opportunity for SPS to give something back to the local community.

"We are fully committed to the social value partnership with Fusion 21 and are delighted we have been able to deliver this project alongside Halton Housing."

Nicola Donoghue, from Widnes & Runcorn Cancer Support Group said: "We approached Sovini Property Services through their partnership with Halton Housing as we were in need of a refurbishment and due to limited funding we were looking for someone who could take on the project as part of their commitment to social value.

"We are delighted with the work that Sovini Property Services have done and we can't thank them enough."

Diane Major from Halton Housing said: "It is great to work alongside Sovini Property Services to deliver this project to a local charity as part of our shared commitment to social value through the Fusion 21 framework.

"The team did a fantastic job and have made a significant difference to the Widnes & Runcorn Cancer Support Group."
