A Weston charity’s four-year goal of upgrading its sensory room has been completed at last, thanks to a team of volunteers from a hardware store.

The Brandon Trust, which supports people with learning disabilities, saw its base given a makeover by a team from the town’s branch of B&Q, which including a new floor and lighting, plus a fresh lick of paint.

B&Q manager Heather Shaw said: “When we heard from The Brandon Trust about the need for new lighting and flooring in their sensory room, we jumped at the chance at helping such an important charity in our local area.”

And Lisa Shorland, Brandon Trust manager, said “We’re always really grateful for support from our local community and B&Q have done a brilliant job.

“We support more than 80 people here, who are delighted with their new sensory space and are looking forward to making the most of it during 2018.”
