Our new Support Centre was officially opened on Wednesday 6th December by our Society President, Elaine Dean.
Our ambition is to support colleagues’ wellbeing with a light airy space that provides areas for focus and creativity as well break out areas for people to meet, eat and socialise. Now we're positioned at the heart of Lichfield city centre, our Colleagues can support local cafes, restaurants and shops, and even enjoy the beautiful green spaces nearby.
The building, situated at Queen Street, Lichfield, WS13 6QS, includes sustainable features, including solar roof panels, and soon to be installed EV charging points plus a bike shed, and showers planned for early in 2024, for those who choose to take advantage of our new cycle to work scheme. We even recycled and reused as much as we could from our old offices to avoid waste.
We’ve also leased office space to local charity, Liberty Jamboree who provide opportunities for young people and adults aged 11-25 with learning and physical barriers in and around Staffordshire.
We were joined at our opening by some lovely new neighbours including, Lichfield Garrick Theatre, St Giles Hospice and Lichfield Food Bank.
This year we’re supporting Lichfield Garrick’s Christmas Ticket Appeal providing FREE tickets for financially challenged young people to see their pantomime, Beauty and the Beast. We’re also sponsoring St Giles’ Hospice in their ‘March of The Elephants’ fundraising sculpture trail in 2024 and continue to provide donations to Lichfield Food Bank in support of support local families in need.
At a time of Goodwill to all, we continue to make a difference to the local communities we serve through our stores, funeral homes and even our Support Centre.
